Tribute Page - Fransisco De Goya

Hello there, i’ve just finished the first version of my tribute page and i’d like to be provided with some feedback. First of all, i have to say that i really enjoyed the whole process ,even the struggling at times and i am looking forward to improve my draft further and further.

All i did is play with the div selectors, positioning and centering and displaying. Although i believe it’s not so responsive and looks an amateur work i’m somehow satisfied with the results. It’s a bit sloppy and i accept critisism and advice on how to fix my sloppy style of writing code.

Only thing is, i really dont know why the 3rd TD in the table doesn’t align vertical with the others, i’ve played with it a bit and it only changes when i put on more text.What’s the way to prevent it from disaligning no matter how much text i add?


This code belongs to the CSS tab (not js):

  font-family: 'Raleway';
  background-color: #780707;
  padding: 10px 0px 10px 0px;
  display: inline-block;


<!-- empty </a>  -->
<h1 class="title">Fransisco De Goya</a></h1>


<!-- The <p> element cannot be a child of the <ul> element. -->
 <p>Goya began to establish a reputation as a portrait artist, winning commissions from many in royal circles. Works, such as "The Duke and Duchess of Osuna and their Children",illustrate Goya's eye for

Cheers and happy coding :slight_smile:

It’s a nice design, colours and layout looks well thought out.

I’d suggest that you don’t use tables for layout - it’s semantically incorrect. You could either a lot spend time writing your own css styles for this, or use Bootstrap like we were introduced to, which gives you a really convenient grid system. This will help you with making the page responsive too.

Thank you for your reply and apologies for my late response.

I do understand that LI’s are childen of UL’s but you say that the <p> is not supposed to be there, then what should i replace it with? I need some sort of text in between the <li> 's . I’ve tried closing the<UL> and then put the <p> but it didnt solve the problem.

Your code is like this:


<li> <!-- in between --></li>                 

<p></p>    <!-- outside <li></li> -->


In your code the <p> elements are outside the <li>'s (not in between).
