What am I doing wrong ?

Step 80

You change properties of a link when the link has actually been visited by using a pseudo-selector that looks like a:visited { propertyName: propertyValue; }.

Change the color of the footer Visit our website link to be grey when a user has visited the link.

}a:visited { footer: footerColor; grey}

a:visited { footer: footerColor; grey}

Test
Sorry, your code does not pass. Hang in there.

Hint
You should set the color property to grey.

Challenge: Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 80

Link to the challenge:

Use that pseudo selector :visited with its associated element a and set its property so the link changes color when its been clicked on. Remember footer is an element and not a CSS property.

Sorry, now I’m more confused. :sweat_smile:

Figured it out! thanks anyway :slight_smile:

(anchor)a:visited(pseudo selector) {
               (property)color: grey;(value)
}

the words in brackets are the names of the attributes/values/selectors and not how its actually coded.
