CSS

navigation links placed wrong!

heres a picture of it http://imgur.com/IuFxgFP

i think the navigation links are too long so they are pushing away the "other" link, i have no idea what to do now, anyone got a clue?

just tell me if you need the codes for my "main.css" or "index.html" or the "@media screen" css

It looks like you need to add a media query to handle small screens. What would you like the links to look like and yes please paste your code in

This is the media query css file

#gallery li:nth-child(2n+1) { clear:left; }

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {

   /****************************************
   TWO COLUMN LAYOUT
   *****************************************/

   #primary {
    width: 50%;
    float: left;
  }

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

/**************************************** PAGE: PORTFOLIO *****************************************/

   #gallery li {
    width: 28.3333%; 
  }


  #gallery li:nth-child(2n+1) {
     clear: none;

  }

  #gallery li:nth-child(3n+1) {
    clear:left; 
  }

    ```




      /****************************************
          PAGE: ABOUT
          *****************************************/

.profile-photo { float: left; margin: 0 5% 80px 0; }

}

@media screen and (min-width: 660px) {

     /****************************************
    HEADER
     *****************************************/

    nav {
      background: none;
      float: right;
      font-size: 1.125em;
      margin-right: 5%;
      text-align: right;
      width: 45%; 
    }

    #logo {
     float: left;
      margin-left: 5%;
      text-align: left;
      width: 45%;
    }

    h1 {
     font-size: 2.5em;    
    }

    h2 {
      font-size: 0.825em;
      margin-bottom: 20px;
    }

    header {
      border-bottom: 10px solid #599a68;
      margin-bottom: 65px;
    }

Yes it does look like you need to change the margin/padding to to allow the text to fit or smaller text. Other than the you ming just have the link sit two to a column

nothing happens when i make the width higher

instead of making the text smaller, is there an way to make the links stay in line when i make the browser smaller?

When you get to sizes that small you should think mobile so smaller text is better.

Heres some images of the websites behaviour

at first its looking good, but then the "other" link is positioning wrong. the its good again, then when the browser gets smaller it gets positioned wrong again,

The width at 45% is not long enough to show your links on one line in the 660px media query. Still on smaller screens its just the over all size of your nav elem

nothing happens when i set the width to a higher %
