I used text-align in my .contact-info to align my contact links, because they go to the left of the page when not aligned. But my Headline is still to the left. Can anyone help me?

on a second look I noticed you aren't using a div. that is were you id selector for your wrapper should be, the div will enclose all you sections and your footer. Try adding this to you html and see what that does. This is my final code for the contact page from this course. If you are still having problems I'd go back to the video and see what exactly Nick is having you do in regards to the CSS. You can often times do the same thing multi ways with CSS and I don't want to get away from the basic building blocks that nick is giving you. Good luck

<div id="wrapper">
      <section id="primary">
        <h3>General info</h3>
        <p>General info about contacting me</p>
        <p>More info about contacting me</p>
      <section id="secondary">
        <h3>Contact Details</h3>
        <ul class="contact-info">
          <li class="phone"><a href="tel:555-6425">555-6425</a></li>
          <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:nick@exmple.com">nick@example.com</a></li>
          <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=nickrp">@nickrp</a></li>

Thanks! I see where I was messing up now with the div. That really helped me out! :-)

Hey there, First of all in your html under you contact details H3 you 2nd and 3rd list item's syntax is wrong. Your first list item is correct the other two should look like that one, class="mail" and class="twitter" not class:"mail" and class:"twitter". You'll notice the orange quotations that means there's an error.

<h3>Contact Details</h3>
      <ul class="contact-info">
        <li class="phone"><a href="tel:971-361-0888">971-361-0888</a></li>
        <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:skare.krow81@gmail.com">skare.krow81@gmail.com</a></li>
        <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=skrow81">@skrow81</a></li>

Second, the only H3 I see in your CSS is for your section that has the wrapper, which is only going to apply to your general information H3 it won't apply to your contact details H3 because this section doesn't have the class wrapper. So make sure you either target your header directly or give it a class of it's own so you can target the whole section.

See if that helps and let me know if your still having trouble.

Can you give me an example of to accomplish that?
