My images are floating in the wrong column.

I need help to know what I'm looking for. Everything has been separated in to two columns but the icon images are appearing under the text in the left column. I need the images to arrange to the right column like its suppose too.

Hi Sean,

The secondary column has the following css applied to it:

#secondary {
    float: right;
    width: 40%;
}

It looks like you're not getting that css applied. Check that you have the id written properly in the html <section id="secondary"> and also that you have added the above css in the 480px media query. This happens in the video around the 2:30 mark. You may have some syntax errors in your css that is causing those styles not to be applied.

What is your code? It's hard for us to help you without the ability to see the code that makes that page.

Hello Sean,

What appears to be missing is a padding/+margin

.contact-info a {
  display:block;
  min-height: 20px;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 20px 20px;
  padding: 0 0 0 30px;
  margin: 0 0 10px;
}

If I take the last two declarations away, the still not be proper spacing between the elements resulting in that look above ^.

Here is some my css code. I reviewed the padding/margin but I keep getting the same error.

.contact-info { list-style: none; padding: 0; margin: 0; font-size: 0.9em; }

.contact-info a { display:block; min-height: 20px; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: 20px 20px; padding: 0 0 0 30px; margin: 0 0 10px; }

.contact-info li.phone a { background-image: url('../img/phone.png'); }

.contact-info li.mail a { background-image: url('../img/mail.png'); }

.contact-info li.twitter a { background-image: url('../img/twitter.png'); }
