I changed both width/height of social icons to 75px to experiment, but no effect. Is it affected by specificity?

I tried to practice changing the width ,height and margin in the social media icon section. I noticed that there is no difference at all if I increase or decrease width and height in terms of pixel. The only difference I will see when I refresh it, is when I increase the margins. But the width and height still remains the same size regardless the number I set it to. Is it affected by specificity?

This is a snapshot of my code.


Thank you.

Hi web pad,

Your social media image tags <img>, have been nested outside of <a> element with the class social-icon. Therefore any styling you apply to the social-icon class is not applied to the <img>. If you place ethe <img> inside of the <a> it should work.

Hope it helps, Max

I'm not sure if I inserted the code correctly inside the anchor tag in index.html. This is my code. It's still not letting me resize the icons. Am I missing any quotations or coded it wrong? I inserted the img tags insta4.png and twitter-wrap.png inside the anchor tags.

<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instagram" alt="instagram-logo" class="social-icon"><img src="img/insta4.png"></a>
<a href="https://finance.yahoo.com/news/spacex-facebook-page-down-musk-promises-twitter-171854506--finance.html" alt="twitter-logo"class="social-icon"><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png"></a>

This is a snapshot of the edited code. For some reason, when I play around the margins of the social icons, it works, only the height and width does not. Do you think it has something to do with the image file? Thank you once again.
