[fixed] Background image won't show up...

The instructions say to set background-url to an image of your choice. First of all, I thought it was background-image, not background-url. I tried it both ways and neither works. I tried 10 different photo urls, all large photos, so I don't think it's related to that.

I've had a number of other issues with these lessons, like parts of the code not carrying over from previous sections or just disappearing entirely. So I'm trying to figure out if I've done something wrong, or if it's just another error in the lessons...

This is what I have right now:

.jumbotron {
background-image: url("");
height: 500px;

The background image should show now Molly, still working on the bit about the wording being wrong.

The wording is fixed now too.
