Pseudo-class to select all but the last element

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I have tried every variation of the suggested pseudo-class but nothing is accepted and the same error " You can use the :not(:last-of-type) pseudo-class to select all but the last element." appears every time. Anyhelp appreciated Thanks

Hey, congrats on getting here so far.
The pseudo-class allows us to give an eligibility to CSS elements. In this case the :not(:last-of-type) is actually two pseudo classes. :not means not to choose, and :last-of-type means only the last of the type. you can combine them with a parentisis.
But, to answer your question, this specific example should be written as element:not(:last-of-type) :smiley:

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

Appreciate the comment but as you have a “tick box” marked Solution you are really inviting people to post a solution and tick it as such. Perhaps that needs some more thought and phrased differently.

No. Having the thread marked as solved means the question asked in the thread has been resolved. It is not an invitation for unsolicited solutions.
