My footer has disappeared! Also the images, although in 2 columns are massive. Not sure what I've done wrong.

like this

<footer> <p></p> </footer>

Thank you for posting although I can't see what you've written

Do you have any suggestion for why my images are still massive?

Hi Kazira,

You have a typo on the Facebook anchor tag: no closing angle bracket.

Edit: Actually, it's the img tag.

Thank you ! My problem is half fixed! The images are still massive though

What size are you wanting your images to be? The only css I see that pertains to images is #img and that only styles elements with an id of "img"... as opposed to image tags.

I'm just trying to follow the video so it looks the same as in the example, there isn't a margin between the two columns either... I wonder what I've missed I've tried to copy the code exactly the same

(thank you!)

Which video is it?

Here's the correct HTML from the next video:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

If you want, you can look through that and try to find what error you made (probably a syntax error; it happens... a lot). If I were you, though, I'd just download the Project Files from the next video and take it form there. Good luck :)
