Overriding bootstrap .btn styling......unvisited links are styled properly, but I can't figure out why my :visited state

Overriding bootstrap .btn styling......unvisited links are styled properly, but I can't figure out why my :visited state is overriding the unvisited style. I only want the Orange color to apply if the user has visited the link, otherwise, use the other stying.

Code has been posted

.btn { margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px; background-color: darkgrey; color: darkred; }

.btn:visited { color: orange; }

.btn:hover { /* Applies to links under the pointer */ font-weight: bold; background-color: darkgrey; color: darkred; }

Can you post a snapshot of your workspace?

If you are not using a Treehouse workspace then index.html will probably do. I was just trying to reproduce the behavior.

Work space as in my code editor with my files?

Or as in my index.html page and how my bootstrap and external css files are ordered?
