HTML How to Make a Website Responsive Web Design and Testing Build a Three Column Layout

Need help with two column layout

When I did the breakpoints in the file "responsive.css" using the background color test, all worked well. When these were removed and #primary and #secondary ids were added, the browser did not produce a two column view. It did float the "Contact Details" to the right as the browser was stretched but would never make two columns, not matter how wide be screen was pulled. Any thoughts?

without seeing the code, all I can say is maybe check the widths of your columns, including any padding, margin and border values.

Alternatively, set * { box-sizing: border-box } at the beginning of your document.

Leon Farris if you could provide a link to your webpage, or paste in your HTML+CSS into a Codepen, that would help us, to help you :-)
