Add a custom button to a contact. Trailhead Challenge

Hello Communty

I am trying to complete this challenge:

To pass this challenge, create a custom button which opens a link to 'http://google.com?q=<CONTACT NAME>' - where <CONTACT NAME> is the current contact's name. Then add this button to the default 'Contact Layout'.
The custom button must be labeled 'Google Info' with the name 'Google_Info'.
The custom button must dynamically insert the contact's name using the appropriate merge field.
The custom button must be added to the 'Contact Layout' page layout.


But keep getting this error: 

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
The 'Google Info' custom button was not found. Hint: Make sure that it is a Detail Page Button (not link) and that its added to the page layout.

Please view the seenshot.

What am i doing wrong? Thanks for your help! User-added image

The "Google Info" button should show up under the Buttons tab and not custom links and make sure that its API name is"Google_Info". Also make sure that it is a detail page button and not a link.

In the Display Type I was choosing Link instead of Button!

Just for future people with a similar issue - you must DRAG the button from the list of valid buttons into the layout section marked "Custom Buttons"

This was very helpful. Thanks ) I would have to "override" to drag the custom button into the Contact Detail - correct ?
