Hi everyone,

I started the HTML course with freeCodeCamp and am working through the first two challenges, building a tribute and portfolio page.

I am a bit stuck with the portfolio page. I have managed to create a fixed menu along the top of the screen, and it scrolls above the backgrounds of the following pages, but under some div sections I have for text.

The next thing I am stuck on is the div classes themselves. I can’t seem to get them to act like boxes; I haven’t worked out how to move them separately from the background or bring the padding in sideways.

The project is at: https://codepen.io/pj42-ah/pen/geeZyR

Any feedback or clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Alex

You have nested containers.

Start by removing all of your containers except the outermost one.

Thank you Jacey!

I tut-tooed with it a little more and found that the opacity setting was causing it.

I also figured out that to center the text horizontally I needed to add padding on the background image.

Thanks again.
