Challenge: Tribute Page - Build a Tribute Page

Link to the challenge:

I put it in my browser and it appears perfectly centered though. One thing I would suggest is to set the width or max-width before setting the margin as auto. This will allow css to first calculate the entire width relative to its container (since you are specifying in %) and then calculate the margin.
Also second thing I did is also set the width of the picture. So that it is of a certain width. And then set the max-width so that it should be within a certain limit on sreens of diff sizes. So I tried…
#image{ width:100%; max-width: 100%; margin:auto; /* rest of the styles */ }
See if that would serve your purpose.

Thats totally fine but when i run the tests i’m still getting the “center within its parent element wrong”

hi there, have you tried any of the suggestions given by the previous poster skamat?

Hi there, this tribute page project is part of the projects needed for certification. Sharing code is not allowed on the forum in general but in this case it could cause the certificates to be revoked.

Thanks for your understanding.

yes i did try and said it didn’t work

Please post the new code so we can help further.

Also please try to enclose the image and figcaption within figure tag, sinceyou are using the figcaption tag,
