Looking for an error. I'm trying to make my background orange and center the photos and their associated links.

Hey Gabe,

you're styling an element with the id of wrapper (#wrapper) but there is no element with the id of wrapper in your index.html. Just give the id of wrapper to the element you want to style and it should work! :)

Hi Tobias,

Newbie here. Can you be a little more detailed?

To me, the code looks exactly like the code in the training video. Should I have edited in index.html as well as in main.css?

I'm sorry, of course! :) Could you specify the video you're talking about by the way?

The problem is that you're selecting an element with the id of wrapper (You write an # in front of the id's name when you want to select an id in CSS) but there is no element in your HTML markup that has this id. Let's just say for an example that you want the section in your index.html to have the styles you mentioned above then you give the section the id of wrapper like this:

<section id="wrapper">

Note that you only write a # symbol in front of the id in CSS, not in HTML. So I guess that maybe it's a new video with a different workspace or you overlooked it but if you tell me the video you're talking about I can have a look at it, I hope that helps! :)

Oh and I noticed a small mistake in your markup. On line 11 you're writing

<a href="index.html"</headera>

but you should just close your anchor tag like this:

<a href="index.html"></a>

Edit: I just saw that you closed your anchor tag further below so you can just remove

</headera>
