CSS How to Make a Website Adding Pages to a Website Add Iconography

background image icons for contact

i have followed directions with correct syntax and all but the images don't seem to be affected at all by styling.... here's my code. all links have classes associated etc

/************************** Page: Contact **************************/

.contact-info{ list-style:none; padding:0; margin:0; font-size:0.9em; }

.contact-info a{ display:block; min-height:20px; background-repeat:no-repeat; background-size:20px 20px; padding:0 0 0 30px; margin: 0 0 10px; }

.contact-info li.phone{ background-image:url('../img/phone.png'); }

.contact-info li.mail{ background-image:url('../img/mail.png'); }

.contact-info li.twitter{ background-image:url('../img/twitter.png'); }

Hey, instead of styling the links .contact-info a, you should style the list items .contact-info li because you're adding the images to the list items not the links.

So your code will be

.contact-info{ list-style:none; padding:0; margin:0; font-size:0.9em; }

.contact-info li{ display:block; min-height:20px; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size:20px 20px; padding:0 0 0 30px; margin: 0 0 10px; }

.contact-info li.phone{ background-image:url('../img/phone.png'); }

.contact-info li.mail{ background-image:url('../img/mail.png'); }

.contact-info li.twitter{ background-image:url('../img/twitter.png'); }

Thank you it worked!
