HTML How to Make a Website Responsive Web Design and Testing Refactor the Layout

How do I clear the list item of every 4th item inside the list id gallery?

I think it is:

gallery li: nth-child (4n) }

clear: left; }

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
}

nav a {
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

.profile-photo {
  display: block;
  margin: 0 auto 30px;
      max-width: 150px;
  border-radius: 100%;
}

.contact-info {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  font-size: 0.9em;
}

.contact-info a {
  display: block;
  min-height: 20px;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 20px 20px;
  padding: 0 0 0 30px;
  margin: 0 0 10px;
}

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {
  #gallery li {
    width: 28.3333%;
  }
    #gallery li: nth-child(4n) {
      clear: left;
    }

Hi Jackie

You've got a space after the "li:" and there should be one, should be written:

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

Thanks Chris! That is correct! I can move on with this and life! (I think you meant there "shouldn't" be a space :) )

I ran into the brick wall here as well! The spacing is critical. ( I thought I was losing my mind at one point. )

gallery li:nth-child(4n) {

clear: left } Some tricks I have come up with to help with some of the spacing issues:

  1. Zoom in on your screen. Much easier to zoom in and out to help the eyes.
  2. Take really accurate notes, I print up examples and use a highlighter and other markups to help me lock it in.

I hope this helps.

Yes! Thanks Robert. Great pro tips!!
