CSS not responding in Personal Portfolio

Hey guys, was wondering if someone could have a look at my code. Not sure what I am missing, but when I try to edit the directions and content of my CSS, none of them seem to respond to what I enter. Feel like I’m missing something obvious here :sweat_smile: Appreciate any help


Can you be a little more specific about what CSS rules aren’t behaving as expected?


If you run your CSS through this validator, you will find a small error. I’m not sure if that’s what causing your problems–but I find it helpful to use the validators when things aren’t working.

Hi @Doomdave!

In addition to the errors in your css, you have some errors in your html.

Run your html code through the html validator https://validator.w3.org/

Then if you have any more issues with the css, you can give us specific examples so we can better assist you.

Hi ArielLeslie. When I’m trying to use things like ‘Justify-Content’ and ‘Align-Items’ The value I’m using isn’t causing any of the actual text/images to change position

@Doomdave, you have quite a few syntax errors in your HTML code. Run it through the W3C validator and correct the errors before you try styling.

For instance this
<p><img class="tribute page img" src="https://i.postimg.cc/43p80H9k/Screenshot-17.png" alt="Tribute Page" div-id:"tribute-img"></p></div>
is incorrect and you will not be able to style the #tribute-img until your code is correct.

And I believe I’ve mentioned this to you before,
Do not use the <br> element to force line breaks or spacing. That’s what CSS is for.

Looking at your HTML, I might suggest you go through the Basic HTML & HTML5 part of the curriculum again. A little repetition is never a bad idea when first learning.
