HTML with CSS / it doesn't work

Hello guys,

I’m trying to make CSS code for my cv.
In my HTML code I put :

link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style-cv.css"

When I make changes on my CSS code it doesn’t work on my HTMLcode.

I don’t understand what’s wrong with my code.

For exemple I need to change de the color of one of Li.

in HTML i put:

< li class="pink">

in css I put:


{color: green}

it doesn’t work…

Thank you in advance for your help.

Please format your code as follow:

When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

I think it should be : < link … . . .

@ilenia Thank you very much. I just corrected it.

Still doesn’t work.

Thank you @emoclasic
I use “Sublime text” to code…

how’s your folder structure?



you need to write the correct path, so how are the files in the folders? are they in the same folder?

You could try to put these 2 files into a folder on the Desktop or anywhere and use
href="./style-cv.css" instead of href=“style-cv.css”.
(And change the .html file’s name to lowercase; but it’s not a big problem :slight_smile: )

I don’t see semicolon here.

.pink {
color: green; //semicolon

Wait a minute!! Do you have a “style.css” text on your first line in your style-cv.css? Why is it there? :smiley:



Thank you for your reply.
At the moment that’s all I have in mi CSS code. I think I have a problem to connect my HTML code with CSS…

And this is my HTML code

There is a mistake in linking the CSS file.
like you gave the href="style.css" but your CSS file name is “style-cv”
you should change the code into href="style-cv.css"

Happy Coding !

Thank you.

Still doesn’t’ work:

Why there is a text on top of the CSS file like style.css ?



it worked…
Thank you !!!

Absolutely, I don’t know why I wrote this text there, that’s why it didn’t work…

Thank you !!! @codely
