Did you remember to set your link's text-decoration to none;?


For some reason, I can't get past this lesson because i keep getting an error that says: "Oops, try again. Did you remember to set your link's text-decoration to none;?"

This is my HTML:

<!DOCTYPE html>
		<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
	    <h1>One day</h1>
	    <p>Hey bud</p>
	    <img src="http://www.apimages.com/Images/Ap_Creative_Stock_Header.jpg"/>
	    <a href="www.google.ca">google</a>

And my stylesheet:

    font-family: Verdana,sans-serif;
    color: #576D94;
    font-size: 18px;
    color: #4A4943;
    font-family: Garamond, serif;
    color: #cc0000;
    text-decoration: none;

I can literally see that it works in the box on the right. It changes when I change the code. I just don't understand why the website won't let me continue to the next lesson.

Thanks in advance

Oops, try again. Did you remember to set your a:link to have a text-decoration of none?

Just do it in Firefox it works


I am having the same problem, in the same lesson. It is in the HTML & CSS course. 26. Links and text decoration. I have tried this in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer. I am thinking this is an error Codecademy needs to fix. It is so disappointing since you can't move forward!


Same problem. I'm using Chrome and i can't pass my lesson though I make everything as has to be.


Same thing here. I can't continue...


I have same problem with this lesson, I tried everything but is same words.


Same issue for me as well.


same issue been stuck for an hour trying to look up the problem with my code


Yes, its a bug on their end. Mine isn't moving forward either when it's clearly all correct.


Same...i thought i made a mistake but it was clearly correct....guess ill just skip and move on.


same, double- and triple-checked, please fix


This is happening to me in Chrome too.


Can't advance on Chrome either


Same on my end, chrome user as well.


Hey guys,
I just had the same issue, I completed the new HTML & CSS course already but I was doing this one just to reinforce things a bit. I got stuck as well, but decided to try Internet explorer and it worked for me! I was using Chrome before.


I can't get passed this lesson when clearly everything is correct. I'm getting stressed out! I have to turn this in by Wednesday and it's Monday!
