Footer style doesn't work

I don't understand why my footer style doesn't work. I followed the instructions and I saved the documents before I tested it. Can somebody take a look at my code?


    <footer id="main-footer">
            <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
            <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>


#main-footer {
  padding-top: 60px;
  padding-bottom: 60px;
  border-bottom: solid 10px orange;

Greetings Thijs de Bruijn

At a glance, I'm not seeing anything wrong, but there could be some code taking place after your main-footer adjustments to the CSS later in your file that are overwriting what you've applied to your footer.

Would you please snapshot your workspace and share that with us? If you're not sure how to do that, please watch this quick tutorial on utilizing the snapshot feature within workspaces.
