And here's some of my CSS...

.container {
    width: 940px;
    padding: 0 10px;
    margin: 0 auto;

.clearfix:after {
    content: "";
    display: table;

.clearfix:after {
    clear: both;

.clearfix {
    zoom: 1;

Hi Emily,

I can't be sure without seeing the rest of your CSS but try adding the clearfix class to the <ul> element.

If that doesn't do the job, please post your code to something like codepen and I'll take a look at it for you :)

Is there an opening div container class that you forgot to add into your example, because as it stands there is no container div there, that I saw.

Also, in your anchor id you forgot to put the = sign between id and "logo".

Ok thank you both, here's a link to my code. I will check those things but I would love it if you took a look.

Adding the clearfix class to the <nav> element should do the job.

Here's an adapted codepen: http://cdpn.io/kLpIB

Thanks Matt!
