Issue with Media Queries


I was wondering if anything was having issues or had issues with the Media Queries section of this project.

As i went in, the (min-width) section and the first { brace was highligthed red.

No matter what i add to the media query, it doesn't affect the layouyt.

Any idea what this is?

Hey Derrick,

Try adding 'screen and'. The below code should help.

@media screen and (min-width: 769px) {

    /* ---- Float clearfix ---- */

    .clearfix::after {
        content: " ";
        display: table;
        clear: both;

/** To see that it's working **/  

  body {
    background-color: green;

I think this is just an internal error in the worksheet internal workings. Seemed to be a few comments when I was working on it, or workaround by adding "all" after @media etc. Being blank after media should be the same function as @media all but it's just not picking it up.

Yeah, I agree. It is weird.
