CSS How to Make a Website Styling Web Pages and Navigation Create a Horizontal List of Links

Is the program glitching?

I can't see a problem with my code. it keeps saying to set the top-padding to 15px when it already is.

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul {
  margin: 0px 10px 0px 10px;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}
nav li {  
  display: inline-block;
  font-weight: 800;
    padding-top: 15px;
    padding-right: 10px;
    padding-bottom: 15px;
    padding-left: 10px;
}

Zachary, What element are you supposed to set the top-padding to 15 px? Assuming it was to nav li, did you try doing it on one line? Are they maybe looking for the shortcut response? I seem to remember that one tripping me up...

Hi Zachary,

For this task you need to add your font-weight and padding properties to an nav a selector instead of nav li which is why the task is failing, see the below.

nav a {
  font-weight: 800;
  padding-top: 15px;
  padding-right: 10px;
  padding-bottom: 15px;
  padding-left: 10px;
}

Also instead of declaring each padding-x property separately you can use the shorthand declaration which is also accepted.

nav a {
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

Happy coding!
