Help with Media Queries

Hey I have problem with media queries, I have done everything correctly on my website as I was following videos. I checked website on android and it doesn't display as it is suppose to. Although when I resize the browser, it does change the website.

Here's what I have:

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

Media queries are at the bottom of main css file as they are suppose to be.

@media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 959px) { }

Any Ideas?

Here's my website: www.cheaptranslations.co.uk

In this example, I use min-width 768 px, but I have media queries for all widths specified.

Tomasz Grabarczyk,

It looks like you're missing your viewport meta tag: <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">



Is there something like max-device-width? I want to target all screen sizes up to about 800px

and if so? how do I write it?

But it looks like your media queries work.

Hi Chase,

only should still work –– I use it because it's useful for preventing older browsers that don't support media queries from applying all the styles.

I got it working! Thank you all :) meta tag for viewport was the only problem

Thanks again!
