I set an id to a <div id="a"> and on my CSS, I typed '#a' to style it. When I try to style it doesn't change.

Here is my html: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Collin Bugash | Designer</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css" type="text/css"> </head> <body> <header> <a href="index.html" id="logo"> <h1>Collin Bugash</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li> <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li> <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul>
</nav> </header> <div id="wrapper"> <section> <ul> <li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""> <p>Experimentation with color and texture.</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""> <p>Playing with blending modes in PhotoShop.</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-06.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""> <p>Trying to create an 80's style of glows. </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-09.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-09.jpg" alt=""> <p>Dribs created using PhotoShop brushes.</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-12.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-12.jpg" alt=""> <p>Creating shapes using repitition.</p> </a> </li>

Here is my CSS:

a { text-decoration: none; }

wrapper { max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 5%; background: blue; }

logo { text-align: center; margin: 0; }

NOTE: I am following the "Make A Website" course. Also the 'wrapper' and 'logo' have a # before them.

I didn't see your div with the id "a". but I did see one of your p's doesn't have a closer .

Yes, I only added 'a' as a placeholder, and sadly closing the paragraph did not help.

the css you gave doesn't have the id selector for the "a" place marker. the #.

I was confused at your last comment, the 'a' I put in the question was just an example, the actual id's I used were 'logo' and 'wrapper'. I put a note at the end stating there was a '#' before them.

check your link href filepath:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css" type="text/css">

Which css file are you putting this in and is it linked correctly?

a#logo {text-decoration:none;}

where a is the html tag and #logo is the id

This does not seem to help the issue, could there be a bug with the workshop?
