Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how the css code is written. I have tried every possible way but it didn’t work

have you tried the way I suggested?
if yes, please post your new code for review.

Hello everyoyne! I just wanted to ask you to check RWDesign curriculum, section “Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form” step number 62.It asks to change the color of the link. I write the answer a:link { color:#dfdfe2; } but the code says that i should use an a element selector.
Thanks beforehand!

thank you very much !

please do not create duplicate topics

I tried but it didn’t work . I checked Html document, but haven’t found problem there as well.

If you followed the above solution given by @hbar1st your problem should have been solved.Please post your code below(dont make a new topic) to help us to find the problem in your code.

a:link {
color:#dfdfe2;
}
is that the way you recommended me?

a:link is not the correct selector

Please only use the a selector (very similar to the p selector)
