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

We want to add an exception for <a> tags that are are in the <div> with a class of .footer: those links should be purple

Code not working correct p { a { color:red; }

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

Thanks Seth but got the answer The question says to use class .footer with div, so in my posted code it goes this way, div.footer & (declare this in the p tag inside that a tag and inside that div.footer) That's it... But thanks anyways...

have you tried nesting this within that class of footer? i've noticed that <a> elements can be weird sometimes and need more specificity than normal tags like your h1's and p's.

maybe something like this... this is Sass based btw

.footer { a { color: purple; (also look up the hex for your purple, some browsers interpret purple to be a different shade) } &:hover { opactiy: 0.5; } }

hopefully that works :)
