4th question flawed

can someone correct the test file so that when I type

padding: 15px 10px;

it knows I have set the top padding to 15px?

my current code has top, right, bottom, and left broken out which I know I do not need to do but I was trying to see if it would recognize I had done it correctly. It did not.

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul {
  margin: 0 10px;
  list-style: none;
  padding: 0;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px;
}

Hi Stefan,

Are you saying that this -

padding: 15px 10px;

produces something different to this? -

padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px;

no. What I am saying is that I did not want to get distracted by someone mentioning the way I had coded it. Mission fail. I am saying that coding it either way gets a "bummer", top should be set to 15px. Is the code above correct if the goal is to set the top to 15px? If it is, then the program is making a mistake in saying I am wrong and needs to be corrected.

No problem,

I wasn't aware you were doing a code challenge. Perhaps there is an error as your code should be fine. You might need to just specify the padding-top -

padding-top: 15px;

The code challenge is to set top and bottom padding to 15 px and left and right to 10px.

I typed: padding: 15px 10px;

The code challenge says it is wrong. Am I then correct in believing the code challenge is flawed and should be corrected? I cannot complete the section because of this and so had to just move on.

Hi Stefan,

Sounds like there is a problem then and you should get in touch with support to let them know -

All the best,

Thank You. I have yet another problem in that everytime I try the next code challenge there are communication errors so I cannot complete the course. Oh well.

Hmm, switch browsers? Apparently chrome works the best.

Good luck

Last time I put chrome on my system malware piggybacked it in and immediately locked up my system with a flashing screen and a number to call for service, which was all a scam. No thanks to Chrome. If the system can't work with what I have, which it has up until now, then I guess I won't be able to use it.
