Media queries not working?

When I created my responsive.css file it somehow removed normalize.css from my workspaces tabs. I put normalize.css back in my css folder, but when I enter my media queries for responisive.css they're not getting applied to my page. Ex: I don't get two columns.

Hi Richard,

did you figure this one out?

I had the same thing... I left an extra curly brace at the end of my #secondary declaration in responsive.css if you've checked you code then you could also...

  1. check you put your link to responsive.css in about, contact and index.html below your main.css
  2. make sure responsive.css is in your css folder.

Hope you cracked it.

If there's a syntax error in the media query, the whole thing will be ignored by the browser.

You could try sharing your code, or better yet, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.
