HTML How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Use Color in CSS

Navigation links showing as purple inside white boxes, instead of just being white themselves.

I'm sure it has something to do with the code I wrote in my index.html file, but I can't seem to find the error. https://w.trhou.se/sj8ezm48cn

You are adding the white background on line 33 of your main.css.

nav a, nav a:visited {
  background: #fff;
}

If you are wanting the text to be white without a background you can try targeting the anchor tags inside of nav and changing the color to white and removing the above css.

nav a{
    color:#ffffff;
}

Oh wow! I didn't even noticed I wrote "background" instead of "color". Thanks for the help!
