Learn CSS Flexbox by Building a Photo Gallery - Step 20

Create a media query for screens smaller than 800px in width. In that media query, create a #gallery img rule and set the width property to 50% . This will convert your gallery to a two-column layout. - I don’t remember learning about how to add a media query I have tried every possible solution I can think of so id appreciate any help.

Your new @media query should have a max-width of 800px like this: @media (max-width: 800px).

Challenge: Learn CSS Flexbox by Building a Photo Gallery - Step 20

Link to the challenge:

The media query itself also uses opening and closing curly braces.

@media (condition) { 
  /* put CSS in here */

Also, your image selector is slightly off:

“create a #gallery img rule”

@media {(max-width: 800px)} this is what i have, what is the problem??

you mean like this? it’s still not as its still not working

Not quite. Look again at my example:

@media (condition) { 
  /* put CSS in here */

The “condition” is when the media query should take effect, which in your case is up to a max width of 800px. And then inside the curly braces you put the actual CSS you want to use for the media query.

@media (max-width: 800px) like this? i still get add an @media query error?

like you need to create a
#galley img {

Thank you for your explanation. I don’t think media queries are covered in the curriculum up to this point.

I believe you are correct. Actually, I think they are in the process of removing the media query steps from all of the courses.
