In need of desperate help. My header and links have all disappeared after writing the responsive css.

After having written the responsive CSS for the navigation links and header, everything seems to have disappeared. Could someone please help me out with this?

This is my responsive css.

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {

/***********************************
Two Column Layout
************************************/

  #primary {
    width:50%;
    float: left;
  }

  #secondary {
    width: 40%;
    float: right;
}

/***********************************
3 * 5= 15
100%-15%= 85%
85/3= 28.33333333
************************************/



/***********************************
Page: Portfolio
************************************/
  #gallery li {
    width:28.333333%
  }

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


/***********************************
Page: About
************************************/

  .profile-photo {
    float:left;
    margin: 0 5% 80px 0;
  }
}



@media screen and (min-width: 660px) {

/***********************************
Header
************************************/
  nav {
      background:none;
      float:right;
      font-size:1.125em;
      margin-right:5%;
      text-align:right;
      width:45%;
    }

  #logo {
    float:left;
    margin-left: 5%;
    text-align:left;
    width: 45%;
  }

}

Hi Shahzain,

When you say "everything seems to have disappeared"...do you mean you only see a white blank screen on the page? Or do you see something but some stuff is not displayed?

Just the header and links disappear

In your main.css, did you float the header to the left?
