Nothing happened to the border when I changed the border styles in css.

I went and tried to attempt to change the border background, but when I did; Nothing happened. I made sure everything was entered in correctly and nothing happened when I refreshed the page.

The same exact thing happened to me. There might be a problem with the Workspace.

Close the Workspace and launch it again. Type each letter of the code yourself instead of clicking the auto-select option. For example, type out each letter of "border-radius", and save-all. Click Preview again, and you will see the change. There's nothing wrong with your code. I believe it's the Workspace just having some glitch.

Make sure you've specified the border thickness and style.

ie: .card-title { border: 2px solid orange }

Could you share your css and html please? It will be much easier to help diagnose the problem that way.

Simply copy your code and paste it here. Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after. If you specify the language after the first set of backticks, that'll help with syntax highlighting.

For example:

<p>This is code!</p>
