CSS How to Make a Website Responsive Web Design and Testing Adjust the Profile Page and Header

In mobile view, text on About page is displayed to the right of picture instead of beneath it? Please help!

My workspace is here: http://teamtreehouse.com/workspaces/2738672#

I floated the picture to the left, and want a 2 column layout for desktop viewers but only one column on mobile.

However, in mobile view, the browser interpretes my code to have a 2 layout column such that the text is to the right of the picture.

How do I solve this? Thanks!

hello your work space link isn't working so I can't see the CSS, however try to give a display property blockon your text such as .column2 { display:block; } may be this one solve the problem.

Can you post your code? See the 'Markdown Cheatsheet' link around the post button for tips!

    /**********************************

  #primary{

.profile-photo{

That's my code in my responsive.css file. Any idea what's going wrong? Thanks!!

hello mate I think you shouldn't use the float property on the profile-photo class in your mobile version, instead use display block on it.

.profile-photo{
  display: block;
  margin:0 5% 80px 0;
}

let me know if you still have the problem.

Tried this, it worked. thanks. But I had already used 'display block' in main.css so I should have been working anyway!
