Describe your issue in detail here.
Hello, I am trying to code a link to keep it from turning blue regardless if you click it or not. It says to use a type selector for the (a) element but I don’t see it?? Please point me in the right direction.

Link to the challenge:

I am supposed to do this code in the Css styles tab, correct?

I’m not sure what you mean by “I don’t see it”.
They are asking you to write an anchor selector.
Just type the letter a followed by a { to make an anchor selector

Thank you, I got confused because a couple of steps ago, I coded an anchor element for “visit our website” link in the footer. So, I thought I was just adding on to that anchor element. I’m overthinking it.

Hey I just finished this one yesterday, so for the anchor selector you would have to add a color value to the element in the styles.css tab.
To type the selector it would look like:


Element{
   
         PropertyName(in your case it would be "color"): PropertyValue;(whichever color you want)

}

if you are trying to make it stay a certain color after you click it you would add “:visited” right next to the element selector.
