CSS Anchor Elements not working

Task 3:

With the anchor elements inside the contact-info list still selected, set a minimum height of 20 pixels. Then add a declaration that will prevent the background from repeating.

I did this task correct, but when I check my work on Task 4, I get an error that says, " It looks like Task 3 stopped working."

Task 4: With the anchor elements inside the contact-info list still selected, set the background size to 20 pixels square. Then set the left padding to 30 pixels, with all other padding at 0.

My work is at very bottom on .contact-info a { }

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: โ€˜Changa Oneโ€™, 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 {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
}

nav a {
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

.profile-photo {
  display: block;
  margin: 0 auto 30px;
      max-width: 150px;
  border-radius: 100%;
}

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

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

Hey Keifer,

Yeah the "Task X stopped working" error can be a little misleading. Sometimes it indicates that you changed something from the previous task but often it just means that something is wrong with your code for the current task.

The first thing is that the challenge is asking you to set the background-size to 2opx square. It is specifically looking for two values in background-size, not background.

background-size: 20px 20px;

And the next thing is that by using 3 values in your padding property you are actually changing the bottom padding value, not the left. Just add another zero to hit the left padding.

padding: 0 0 0 30px;

Good luck
