CSS How to Make a Website Styling Web Pages and Navigation Make a CSS Image Gallery

Need solution to this problem: "Select the list items nested inside the gallery. Float them to the left."

THIS IS WHERE I'M CURRENTLY AT AND I WOULD LOVE SOME ADVICE OR GUIDANCE:

a { text-decoration: none; }

wrapper {

max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; }

logo {

text-align: center; margin: 0; }

h1, h2 { color: #fff; }

nav a { color: #fff; }

nav a:hover { color: #32673f; }

h1 { font-family: ‘Changa One’, sans-serif; font-size: 1.75em; font-weight: normal; }

img { max-width: 100%; }

gallery {

float: left; width: 45%; margin: 0; padding: 0; list-style: none;

}

gallery is an id so it should use the "#" to select it. Also float left and 45% width need to be added to the list items inside of #gallery.

#gallery li{
  float:left;
  width:45%;
}

because gallery is a class you are creating you have to have the '.' before it. you have to do this with logo and wrapper too. try

a { text-decoration: none; }

.wrapper {
     max-width: 940px; 
     margin: 0 auto; 
}

.logo {
     text-align: center; 
     margin: 0; 
}

h1, h2 { 
     color: #fff; 
}

nav a { 
     color: #fff;
 }

nav a:hover {
     color: #32673f;
 }

h1 { 
     font-family: Changa One, sans-serif; font-size: 1.75em; 
     font-weight: normal; 
}

img { 
     max-width: 100%;
}

.gallery {
     float: left; 
     width: 45%; 
     margin: 0; 
     padding: 0; 
     list-style: none;
}

I tried both Dave's & Julian's solution and it still does not work. What can possibly be the issue?

a { text-decoration: none; }

wrapper {

 max-width: 940px; 
 margin: 0 auto; 

}

logo {

 text-align: center; 
 margin: 0; 

}

h1, h2 { color: #fff; }

nav a { color: #fff; }

nav a:hover { color: #32673f; }

h1 { font-family: ‘Changa One’, sans-serif; font-size: 1.75em; font-weight: normal; }

img { max-width: 100%; }

gallery li{

 float: left; 
 width: 45%; 
 margin: 0; 
 padding: 0; 
 list-style: none;

}

Your still missing a few things; to select the id wrapper, logo, and gallery you need a "#" mark. img also needs a max-height. Here is the correct code please look it over to see where your mistakes are.

a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

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

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img{
    max-width:100%;
  max-height:100%;
}

#gallery{
  margin:0;
  padding:0;
  list-style:none;
}

#gallery li{
 float:left;
  width:45%;
  margin:2.5%;
  color:white;
  background-color:black;
}
