I'm supposed to clear: left; on every 4th listed item within #gallery. Why is that not happening?

If I was to guess, the problem is selecting li within an existing #gallery li.

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%;
    nth-child(4) {
      clear: left;
    }
}

You need to make sure you create a separate CSS entry for both even though they are both targeting the list items in the gallery.

Good luck. :sparkles:

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {
  #gallery li{
    width: 28.3333%;
  }

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

}

I figured I was overlooking something. But I had actually overlooked three things. I had a period instead of a colon between li and nth-child, I missed the 'n' in '4n' and I didn't know to put the nth-child thing on the same line as #gallery.

I had trouble getting it to pass also. putting an n after the 4 (4n) seemed to help, but it took a couple of tries. Kinda odd. That is, I tried it..it failed, tried it again...it passed.

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {
  #gallery li {
    width: 28.3333%;
  }

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