Personal Portfolio Webpage - Build a Personal Portfolio Webpage (Cannot complete last step)

I’m having problems with the last requirement “the navbar should always be at the top”. Out of desperation I googled and I found out the freeCodeCamps tutorial on how to make it stay at the top, and it was exactly what I had.


 <header id="header">
        <nav id="navbar">
                <li><a class="nav-link" href="#welcome-section">Welcome</a></li>
                <li><a class="nav-link" href="#projects">Projects</a></li>
                <li><a class="nav-link" href="#Contact Me">Contact Me</a></li>


header {
    margin-top: -1rem;
    width: 100%;
    position: fixed;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    display: flex;
    z-index: 10;
    background-color: var(--light-color);
    color: var(--dark-color);
    padding: 0 1rem;

What’s the problem with this code? Position: fixed and having the id should be already enough for it to work, including top: 0;

would be good if you shared all the code, not just a snippet.
My guess is to try to remove the margin-top setting.

Did you link in the stylesheet correctly? Make sure you don’t have top margins on either the #navbar or the list inside the #navbar.

It was margin top, thanks!

I shared only those 2 snippets because there were nothing else that could be causing the issue, I knew it had something to do with the code I shared, and I guessed right.

we ask people to share all the code because it is sometimes a browser issue and not having all the code means I can’t test it myself.
