drifting images of the gallery

When I did exactly as Nick told,

#gallery li:nth-child(4n) { clear: left; }

it worked fine. But when I increased the description of the first image by a few lines in index.html's gallery, the third and the fourth images drifted to the right hand side again at different browser window sizes.

P.S. the code is same as Nick's.

Hi Aditi,

Are you having the issue when the images are 2 across and the width of the browser window is around 300-ish pixels wide? I have this issue as well. I don't think it was addressed in the video. I fixed it by adding an additional media query for a screen width of 479 pixels or less. See code below.

@media screen and (max-width: 479px) {
  /* two-photo layout */
  #gallery li {
    width: 42.5%
    }

  #gallery li:nth-child(3n) {
    clear: left;
    }
}

Hi! Thanks for the code. It did fix the issue.Thanks for the idea! :)

Anyways, quick question: why did we make 2 column layout when we were fitting 3-images per row? Code is pasted below:

@media screen and (min-width: 480px){

/******************************************************* TWO COLUMN LAYOUT *******************************************************/

#primary{ width: 50%; float:left }

#secondary { width: 40%; float: right; }

/******************************************************* PAGE: PORTFOLIO *******************************************************/

#gallery li{ width: 28.3333%; } }

Hi - I'm glad the code worked. I think that "two-column layout" code is for the contact page, not for the gallery.
