Image is repeating despite no-repeat.

Hello. I'm adding the twitter, mail and phone icons to the contact page (easier said than done) and for some reason the images keep repeating despite the fact that I specified for them not to. Take a look at my code and the result below:



Does anybody have any idea what's causing this as I'm completely stumped :L Thanks again for reading!

Hi Carson,

When setting the url for your 3 icons you used the shorthand background property and not background-image as used in the video.

When you use the shorthand property, all omitted values will be set to their default values. So even though you previously set it to not repeat it will be set back to the default repeat when you later use the shorthand property.

I have not completed this task yet however I have sore experience in html.

I believe that you should try putting the no repeat attribute after each ) of the image path.

try that and get back to the thread.
