Finishing the CSS - Copyright Alignment Issues

Hi guys,

I've just finished up the Finishing the CSS video, but I'm having problems with the copyright alignment. Instead of aligning centrally like in the video, my copyright is aligning to the right, heading off the far side of the screen.

I've read through my code numerous times, and I can't seem to find any mistakes I've probably made.

Any help you guys can provide would be much appreciated.

can you provide a link to the page or perhaps place the code into a code pastebin like codepen.io, so we can see the problems that you are having?

Here's a link for CodePen, I hope it works ok!


I've just noticed it's perfectly central in the codepen, but not when I view the index.html in my browser (Google Chrome). How weird.

try clearing your cache (ctrl+shift+delete). It may still be loading old CSS stylesheets.

It actually looks like you are missing a div. Also, several of the divs are not semantic in the markup section. They are out of alignment.

Thank you so much Diego! I'm still getting used to finding my way around this stuff, as it's all pretty new for me.

No problem! Most of code is learned by trial and error, because, i believe, because concepts are not normally clear or concrete until we can define the barriers of a concept or of an idea.

I know I learn through making mistakes first, and then by figuring out how to fix them. Once I fix a mistake, that by itself helps me to avoid making that mistake again in the future.

And my life is full of mistakes! lol

Ah! I think I found the problem. you have a <div/> as opposed to a </div> on line 57. That may fix your rendering problem.
