Hi Furquan,

To put HTML/CSS/JavaScript in a forum post:

  1. hit return to create a new line and type three back tick characters ```

  2. hit return to create another new line and paste your HTML

  3. hit return and add three more back tick characters: ``` The back tick character isn't the same as the single quote -- ' -- mark; the back tick is located on the same key as the ~ on most keyboards.

Also to add correct color highlighting add the name of the language after the back ticks like this: ```CSS. Here's what CSS should look like in a forum post:

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;

The margin, padding and list-style properties aren't supposed to go the the #gallery li selector. Those go in the #gallery selector. The float and width go in the #gallery li selector in this code challenge.

a { text-decoration: none; } img { max-width: 100%; }

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; }

gallery {

margin:0; padding:0; list-style:none;


gallery li {

float: left; width: 45%; }
