I am getting stuck on what I feel is the simplest freaking step. I can not for the life of me get my image and nav bar on the same line. I have searched high and low, compared (even copied) the code from the original code pen and it still won’t work. What am I possibly doing wrong?
I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.
You were using 3 single quotes on the same line instead of 3 backticks on the same line, which is why your code was not formatting correctly.
The nav and div elements have a default value of block for their display properties. What that means, is they will each be contained on a separate line. If you change their display property to inline-block, then they will be on the same line.
