Wont work

Please help me fix the problem.

Heres the error message: Arduino: 1.6.8 (Mac OS X), Board: “Arduino/Genuino Uno”

/Users/elliereed/Downloads/DHT11/DHT11.ino:1:17: fatal error: dht.h: No such file or directory
#include <dht.h>
^
compilation terminated.
exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.

This report would have more information with
“Show verbose output during compilation”
option enabled in File → Preferences.

Usually error messages and code are posted using code tags. Just for the future ;)

``` [code] ``` your code or error message here ``` [/code] ``` will result in

Have you installed the dht library?

Yes I actually just fixed the problem it was a error in the sketch.

Maybe edit your opening post and put [solved] or similar in the title.

And maybe next time use a more meaningful title in the first place?

No, that won't work. 8)

PaulS: No, that won't work. 8)

If they did that then maybe someone else with a similar problem could find the solution and we certainly don't want to make it easy for someone else to find the solution now do we???

Fortunately, search engines don't care what the title of a post is. The real problem is getting people to use them. Or to even read the error messages.

I'd really like to be able to edit the file that contains the error messages.

fatal error: dht.h: No such file or directory

would become

fatal error: dht.h: Hey, stupid, you failed to download and properly install the library

I think I would even pay a couple dollars for a plugin that gave me error messages in PaulS words. For the lulz if nothing else.
