My Portfolio, About, & Contact move when I minimize my browser window

I only just recently noticed that my 'contact' link is no longer in line with About and Portfolio when I make my browser the smallest I can.

I am assuming this has to do with my CSS code. Here is my code for my header section.

header {
  float: left;  
  margin: 0 0 30px 0;
  padding: 5px 0 0 0;
  width: 100%;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

  font-family: 'Changa One', sans-serif;
  margin: 15px 0;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
  line-height: 0.8em

h2 {
  font-size: 0.75em;
  margin: -5px 0 0 ;
  font-weight: normal;

Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

line-height: 0.8em ( make sure you have a semi-colon at the end of the line-height) also try to eliminate any extra spaces. like in the h2 element with the margins. This should help. in the h1 you def need to include a semi colon tho, hope this helps.

Thanks! Unfortunately, that didn't work. Maybe someone else can take a look at the body section of my css?

body {
  font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
  padding: 0 5%;

a {
  text-decoration: none;

  max-width: 100%;

h3 {
  margin: 0 0 1em 0;

Thanks in advance!


Hi, I'm Anthony. I was looking over your question because I was experiencing the same issues. After tinkering around with the CSS, I noticed that we wanted to achieve the same technique we used with the images in our <section> tag on the index.html page. You're in the right place with your #wrapper code there; you essentially want to do the same thing but to your navigation in the CSS.

Here is my code:

/************************************************** NAVIGATION ***************************************************/

nav { text-align: center; padding: 10px 0; margin: 20px 0 0; }

nav ul { list-style: none; margin: 0 0px; padding: 0; }

nav li { display: inline-block; max-width: 45%; padding: 0 1.5%; }

nav a { font-weight: 800; }

You see how I have the max-width set to 45% and the padding set to 0 1.5%.

Awesome! No problem.
