CSS Flex Has no Effect on the HTML Element

Tell us what’s happening:
I am trying to apply style from the CSS on the HTML element, but it has no effect. I tried different approaches (by using class and by using element’s ID).

Problem keeps resurfacing (yesterday I solved it by accident), so I really need to understand what is going on.

Many thanks.

P.S. I tried moving #email styling inside the footer parentheses. Also tried placing “display: flex” inside #email styling.

Your code so far

  <form id="form" action=" https://www.freecodecamp.com/email-submit">
      type="email" placeholder="Enter e-mail"
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>
CSS code:
footer {
#email {
  align-items: end;

P.S. For some reason my HTML code will not appear in this post. Don’t know how to fix it. :grimacing:

Use backticks. Put HTML in between a pair of 3 backticks.

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
