Vacuum landing page feedback

I like my landing page but I feel like it could be improved some. I just don’t know what to do differently.

FCC Project Landing Page (codepen.io)

Hello, I hope you’re being well.

I think you should try to use Flexbox. It’s really usefull to organize your layout.

I’m going to leave you an example which is similar. https://codepen.io/freeCodeCamp/full/RKRbwL

Good luck!

Your page looks good @burninsnow. Some things to revisit;

  • Codepen provides the boilerplate for you. It only expects the code you’d put within the body element in the HTML editor. (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.
  • Run your HTML code through the W3C validator.
    • There are HTML syntax/coding errors you should be aware of and address.
    • Since copy/paste from codepen you can ignore the first warning and first two errors.
  • Codepen provides validators for HTML, CSS and JS. Click on the chevron 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)
  • Make the project from scratch, with your own code, style and content. Don’t take code from the sample project.
    • This line is not used <i class="fa fa-3x fa-battery-full"></i>. Do not copy parts of the sample and then try and rewrite it.

On a side note, I notice quite a few typo’s in your code. As a suggestion switch the Syntax Highlighting on Codepen to help catch errors. Go to your Codepen profile settings (not the setting for the pen, but for your profile). Switch the Syntax Highlighting to Oceanic Dark and save the setting. Go back to the pen and make sure your new setting is working. The code highlighting will be using different colors. Errors will now be marked in red.
