My Practice layout


King Coder
So when doing the practice layout using an image backdrop, I use the ::before to get opacity to work without fading the text but, Links do not work.
How do I get the links to work using the ::before css thing?
I will post the relevant codes and image.
@font-face {
    font-family: 'OldLondon';
    src: url(/static/fonts/OldLondon.ttf);

body {
    background-color: rgb(5,5,5);
#backdrop {
    height: 100vh;
    display: flex;

#backdrop::before {
    content: '';
    position: absolute;
    top: 0px;
    left: 0px;
    right: 0px;
    bottom: 0px;
    background-image: url(/static/images/Backdrops/forest.svg);
    background-size: cover;
    opacity: 0.2;

#main-table {
height: 100vh;
width: 100%;

#main-table td {
    vertical-align: top;

#main-header {
    width: 100%;
    height: 120px;
    text-align: center;
    box-shadow: 0 0 2px white;
    border-radius: 0 0 20% 20%;
    font-family: OldLondon;
    font-size: 5em;
    color: white;
    padding-bottom: .5em;

#left, #right {
    height: 100%;
    width: 10%;
    padding-left: 1em;

#center {
    width: 80%;
    height: 100%;
    box-shadow: 0 0 2px white;
    border-radius: 20%;
    background-color: black;
    padding: 15em 8em 15em 8em;
    color: white;

#footer {
    height: 40px;
    box-shadow: 0 0 2px white;
    text-align: center;
    border-radius: 20% 20% 0 0;
    color: white;
