Do you have this line of code in your HTML? (inside the <head> tag)

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">

This line of code is telling the HTML to use the CSS file.

the best suggestion is to first create a new Folder inside of a folder(where your index.html file is ) then save your CSS files into it. then via that folder path link your CSS to HTML.

Yes I think I have the right code. This is what my HTML code looks like: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset= "utf-8"> <title>Pablo Garcia | Designer</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css"> </head>

The only thing I can think of is that your main.css file is still in the main folder instead if in css folder.

Thanks, Bogdan

I was really looking at my code and I realized I misspelled "wrapper" in my HTML. Thanks so much for the help though! It helped me to be able to narrow down what the issue was
