CSS Sass Basics (retired) Getting Started with Sass Advanced Nesting

Preview Sass output does not match my compiler's output.

Hey! I'm a bit stuck on last code challenge of Sass stage 1. My Sass compiler output does not match the output CSS from the preview. Is this a bug?

My Sass code reads:

p{ a{ color: red; .footer &{ color: purple; } } > a{ color: blue; &:hover{ opacity:0.5; } } }

My compiler output:

p a { color: red; } .footer p a { color: purple; } p > a { color: blue; } p > a:hover { opacity: 0.5; }

preview css output:

p a { color: red; } p > a { color: blue; } p > a:hover { opacity: 0.5; }

This should solve your issue

p{ a{ color: red; div.footer &{ color: purple; } }

   > a{ 
       color: blue; 
       &:hover { 
              opacity:0.5; 
             } 
    } 

You needed to be a bit more specific with the selectors. By selecting the specific div with a class footer (div.footer), it should let it pass.
