Getting a ton of CSS Validator errors..

Hey everyone. I'm getting some crazy CSS validator errors and wanted to know if anyone can find out what is wrong. I tried to check all my code but I don't see anything so I must be missing something.

Your CSS is fine. I used the W3C validator to check it. It looks like the error has to do with HOW you submitted your CSS to be validated. Use this site: https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_input and copy and paste all of your CSS into the box and validate. It takes the connection error aspect out of it if you're trying to upload or submit a web address.

Hope that helps.

Thank you!

What does the site look like?
