CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Adjusting the Layout with Media Queries

1,212 Points

Background gets smaller when adjusting with media query

When i get to the step where i should adjust the main header with media query it's also resizeing my background. (broad white space on the right)

@media (max-width: 1024px) { .primary-content, .secondary-content { width: 90%; } }

@media (max-width: 768px) { .primary-content, .secondary-content { width: 100%; padding: 20px; border: none; }

.main-header { max-width: 380px; padding: 50px 25px 0; }

.title { font-size: 1.3rem; border: none; } h1 { font-size: 5rem; line-height: 1.1; }

.arrow { display: none; }

.intro { font-size: 1rem; } }

CSS is hard to test without the HTML it works on. Share the entire project by using the "snapshot" function in the workspace, and then posting the link it gives you.

In your .main-header selector, you are setting the max-width property instead of max-height.

It should be:

  .main-header {
    max-height: 380px;
    padding: 50px 25px 0;
