Perhaps you could post your code directly to the forum?

@media screen and (max-width: 280px) {
     //styles go here

In the meantime the correct format for a media query is something like the above. It's like a programming condition statement in which styles are applied with the maximum width is in effect, that is when the lower than 281 pixels width in size.

@media (condition){

I'd like to but I am not sure how to post like you did. I've watched the treehouse videos for snapshotting and forking a workspace but when I post it just shows up as a link. How are you posting those? I took a screenshot and tried to drag into text box to no avail. A little embarrassed over here ...

Thanks in advance

I've attempted all the suggestions on here. Media Q's are still not working.
