CSS How to Make a Website Responsive Web Design and Testing Build a Three Column Layout

Image gallery not changing to two column layout


My image gallery is not changing to a two column layout when browser window is smaller than 480px after applying responsive.css. Instead, it stays as three columns my code in responsive.css is the same as in the video so I do not understand why it is not working. Thanks for the help.


Nevermind... I found the problem.

If anyone else is experiencing the same thing (which I was), make sure the following section is INSIDE the @media screen and over 480 px:

gallery li { width: 28.3333%; }

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

I had accidentally typed it outside, and obviously the browser was giving a 28.3# width for an image regardless of screen width.

Cheers, Sebastian
