This task: Inside the media query, select the list items inside the gallery and add a width of 28.3333%.

gets marked wrong when I enter the following code: @media screen and (min-width: 480px){

#gallery li { width: 28.3333%; } I don't know where there is a problem. Can you please have a look at it ? thank you

Hi Rastislav,

I don't know if you left it out in the code challenge but you are missing the closing bracket for the media query. Also, to post code properly click on the link below the text area that says Markdown Cheatsheet and follow the instructions. you can also look at this example: How to display code at Treehouse.

I think you are missing a closing bracket like Jeff is mentioning:

Something like this:

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

#gallery li {
    width: 28.3333%;
  }

}

this is a great course but really lets itself down by not helping when you are stuck... if this continues i will opt out! its very good but these things are to time consuming when you are on a break from work and need to know where you are wrong etc

Hi philip,

I agree, when I get stuck I wish I had someone to ask questions to. I have programming books I try to learn from and I run into the same problem there. I finally realized the answer to that problem is to go to a regular school. But that brings up other problems; I have to make time for that and spend a lot more money for that. Even that is no guarantee. I once had an instructor who never once was able to answer my questions, had to google for the answers. After some careful consideration I decided that books and online courses might be the best solution for me. Thank God for Google; talk about a time saver.

Best of Luck,

Jeff
