My hover state won't work for my links. I've tried checking the code over and over again, but I can't tell what's wrong

/* nav links */ nav a, nav a:visited { color: #fff; }

/* bug: nav link */ nav a.selected, nav a:hover { color: 32673f; }

It looks like you're missing the '#' before the hexadecimal value. It should be #32673f rather than 32673f.

Hi Charles, for the pseudo element 'selected,' you mistyped and used a comma instead of a colon. And you left off the # for the color. Once fixed, you should be good.

Keep Coding! :)

I don't think 'selected' is a pseudo class, is it?

Hey Moayad, Yep, you're right. Good catch.

I skimmed it too fast and it just didn't click (pun intended). Probably should finish that first cup of coffee before I go to answer question. :/

I was about to submit another question along the same lines and realised my error was capitalising 'Hover'

Doh! onwards!
