You ignored the “Tell us what’s happening” prompt. Do you have a question?


#3

I am trying to pass this challenge .
I write the code
.links {
background: rgba (0,0,0,0.7);
}
but thats not right?
I dont know what its really asking me to do.


#4

What do the failing tests say?


#5

Your code should set the opacity property to 0.7 on the anchor tags by selecting the class of links.


#6

Instead of using rgba on the background property, you should be setting the opacity property for this challenge.

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

No need for two .links classes in css. Just add the opacity to existing one
