a:link{
text-decoration:none
color:#008B45;
}

a:hover{
color:#00FF00;
}

a:visited{
color:#EE9A00;
}

message:Oops, try again. Did you remember to set your a:link to the color #008B45?


#2

You forgot a semi-colon after text-decoration: none


#3

Yeah I'm getting the same problem... It keeps asking "Did you rmember to set your a:link to the color #008B45?" It's all in there and it even works but it will not let me submit and move on... glitch in the system?

a:link {
text-decoration:none;
color:#008B45;
}
a:hover {
color:#00ff00;

a:visited {
color:#EE9A00;
}


#4

a:hover is missing a closing curly bracket (})


#5

I have the same issue here. I tried to rearrange it every possible way without success. Is there any bug in the systeM?


#6

#7

color: #ee9a00;
}


#8

Got the same issue here:

a:link {
text-decoration:none;
color:#008b45;
}
a:hover {
color:#00ff00;
}
a:visited {
color:#ee9a00;
}

Says:
Oops, try again.
Do your tags all have href attributes?

And they all do have, checked dozens of times!


#10

Show me your HTML and I'll get back to you?


#11

It eventualy worked out somehow! I just added an ul tag and nested every link inside li tags. Should add this to the instructions or as a hint!


#12

you forgot the : in color


#13

he already figured that out, as you can see here:

; and : are on the same key, so i guess he forgot to hold the shift key, but he did figure out the correct code


#14

can you please provide me with the html part of this exercise..i got the CSS tab part but index.html is showing error..i don't know why!!


#15

if you need help, post your code. It is against CC policy to just provide answers


#17

I need help with this problem on css selectors with link. The hover color is neon green. I not sure if the other colors are showing up correctly. Is the other two color suppose to orange and other green color? I only see purple and neon green on hover.

My code is below:
a:link{
text-decoration: none;
color: #008B45;
}
a:hover{
color: #00FF00;
}
a:visited{
#EE9A00
}

Can someone help me with color situation? I did pass the problem but I'm not sure if the color is showing up right.


#18

your a:visited misses its color property all together. If you want a:hover to work on visited links, it should be after a:visited (yes, order matters, it is a bit more complicated then that, but for now take it for granted)


#19

Hi,
My code is working fine. But even when I visit 2 links only the color of last link changes to orange while the other colors remain dark green. Can someone help me with this?


#20
