Finally, change the "index.html" <title> tag to be: {{ super() }} Homepage. Make sure there's a space before "Homepage".

Hey Kaya loves watermelon , thanks for posting your question!

The problem lays in the index.html file

<head><title>{% block title %}Smells Like Bakin'{% endblock %}</title></head>

{% extends "layout.html" %}
{%block title%}Homepage{% endblock %}
{% block content %}

<h1>Smells Like Bakin'!</h1>
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
{% endblock %}

Currently, you have two mentions to a title here. On the first line: <head><title>{% block title %}Smells Like Bakin'{% endblock %}</title></head> and on the 3rd line: {%block title%}Homepage{% endblock %}

You can see this in action in the previous video, Template Inheritance from about 3:05 onwards.

So, for this challenge you'll want to insert {{ super() }} Homepage into the {%block title%} line, like so:

{% extends "layout.html" %}
{% block title %}{{ super() }} Homepage{% endblock %}
{% block content %}
<h1>Smells Like Bakin'!</h1>
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
{% endblock %}

I hope this helps!
