Hi Bruce Staszak,

Are you sure the CSS file is in the /css folder? If it is, check your CSS is correct. Can you create me a codepen with your HTML and CSS so I can see the issue?

Cheers, Ash

If you use markdown, this helps other users to read your code. Also be sure that they are in the css-folder relative to this html-file. It could also help, if you post your folder-structure and your main.css-file
