My first HTML page - Tribute page - Looking for feedback

Hi guys!

I did my very first HTML page and I had so much. fun! It’s the tribute page from the freeCodeCamp challenges.

I’m looking for your help because I had some difficulties and doubts about making the page responsive: do you have any advice / good workflow?
Then, I don’t know why but with the google inspector it seems like it doesn’t recognize my breakpoints: do you know how to fix it?

Your feedbacks would be very appreciated.
Thanks a lot and have a good day :slight_smile:

Welcome to the forums @clara98.cosentino. Your page looks good. Some things to revisit;

  • Codepen provides the boilerplate for you. It only expects the code you’d put within the body element in HTML. (No need to include the body tags). For anything you want to add to the <head> element click on the ‘Settings’ button, then HTML and add it into the ‘Stuff for <head>’ box.
    • The link to the font goes in the box labeled ‘Stuff for <head>’
  • Run your HTML code through the W3C validator.
    • There are HTML coding errors you should be aware of and address.
  • Codepen provides validators for HTML, CSS and JS. Click on the down arrow in the upper right of each section and then click on the respective ‘Analyze’ link.
    • The one for CSS is good. Use it and address the issue(s).
    • (The one for HTML misses things which is why I recommend W3C)
  • Do not use the <br> element to force line breaks or spacing. That’s what CSS is for.
  • Accessibility is about being accessible to all users. Review the lesson about giving meaningful text to links.
  • Attaching a screenshot of your page. I believe it’s your .footer-topline. This is with my laptop. It displays correctly when the screen with is less than 1200px.
  • Start with the narrow view (mobile) design first and then work your way wider, adding breakpoints where needed for the wider design.

Hey, looks great!

Your arrow button jumps me immediately to the Helvetica section. Have you tried smooth scrolling?

scroll-behavior: smooth;

(this was tested on Microsoft Edge)
