CSS CSS Selectors Going Further with Attribute Selectors and Pseudo-Classes :first-child and :last-child Challenge

Create a pseudo-class selector that targets the first-child li in .main-nav. Remove all border styles by setting border

Hmmm, what am I missing?

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
main-nav li:first-child {
        border: none;
    border-top-left-radius: 5px;
    border-bottom-left-radius: 5px;
}

When targeting by class, the class name must be preceded by a period in the selector. Without the period, the system interprets it as a tag name, which of course does not exist.

So the selector should begin with ".main-nav".

it should be like this

.main-nav li:first-child{
    border:none;
  border-radius: 5px 0 0 5px;
}

That's another way to do it, but the separate radius properties work just as well.

My god... i can't believe i messed up something so simple. It was killing me! haha. Thank you!

Typos and misspellings are the bane of tyros and gurus alike. :wink:
