CSS

Only reading css till the navigation bar

Parallel to the course i am working on my own project.

Now i finished one full page but the brrowser is only reading the css untill the navigation bar. Below the navigation i only have blank page.

The IDE i am using is telling no bugs and in the source coude which i checked in production environment it is showing up all the code below the navigation bar.

I code the site in php.

The navigation bar is horizontal and made with an ul-class.

Hello Asim,

You should post the code somehow via new workspace link, or placing your code in some other websites and posting with your link here.

Hi Asim,

Check all your id's and class make sure they are correct.

We can see that your id's for container, welcome, footer and copyright does not have the pound sign / hashtag if you're declaring them as class OR the .(dot) if you're declaring them as a class. (must be entered as the first character)

Try updating them to :

header {

position: fixed;
top: 0;
left: 0;
height: 120px;
width: 100%;
background-color: white;
}

#logo {

height: 100px; width: 150px; margin-top: 10px; margin-left: 10px; }

ul.navbar { list-style-type: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; overflow: hidden; background-color: #333; }

ul.navbar li { float: left; }

ul.navbar li a { display: block; color: white; text-align: center; padding: 14px 16px; text-decoration: none; }

ul.navbar li a:hover:not(.active) { background-color: #111; }

ul.navbar li a.active { background-color: #4CAF50; }

@media screen and (max-width: 600px){ ul.navbar li {float: none;} }

#container {

margin_top: 20px;
background-color: white;
color: black;
}

#welcome {

width: 100%;
margin-top: 20px;
margin-left: 0px auto;
text-align: center;
}

footer {

color: white;
background-color: black;
}

ul.bottomnav { margin: 0px auto; list-style-type: none; margin: 10px; padding: 0px; overflow: hidden; }

ul.bottomnav li { display: inline-block; margin: 10px; text-align: center; }

ul.bottomnav li a { text-align: center; }

#copyright {

margin: 0 auto 0 auto;
}

Or if your declaring them as a class

header {
position: fixed;
top: 0;
left: 0;
height: 120px;
width: 100%;
background-color: white;
}

.logo {
height: 100px; 
width: 150px; 
margin-top: 10px; 
margin-left: 10px; 
}

ul.navbar { list-style-type: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; overflow: hidden; background-color: #333; }

ul.navbar li { float: left; }

ul.navbar li a { display: block; color: white; text-align: center; padding: 14px 16px; text-decoration: none; }

ul.navbar li a:hover:not(.active) { background-color: #111; }

ul.navbar li a.active { background-color: #4CAF50; }

@media screen and (max-width: 600px){ ul.navbar li {float: none;} }

.container {
margin_top: 20px;
background-color: white;
color: black;
}

.welcome {
width: 100%;
margin-top: 20px;
margin-left: 0px auto;
text-align: center;
}

footer {
color: white;
background-color: black;
}

ul.bottomnav { margin: 0px auto; list-style-type: none; margin: 10px; padding: 0px; overflow: hidden; }

ul.bottomnav li { display: inline-block; margin: 10px; text-align: center; }

ul.bottomnav li a { text-align: center; }

.copyright {

margin: 0 auto 0 auto;
}

Hopes this helps..

changed from idยดs to classes, same result:

header { position: fixed; top: 0; left: 0; height: 120px; width: 100%; background-color: white; }

.logo { height: 100px; width: 150px; margin-top: 10px; margin-left: 10px; }

ul.navbar { list-style-type: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; overflow: hidden; background-color: #333; }

ul.navbar li { float: left; }

ul.navbar li a { display: block; color: white; text-align: center; padding: 14px 16px; text-decoration: none; }

ul.navbar li a:hover:not(.active) { background-color: #111; }

ul.navbar li a.active { background-color: #4CAF50; }

.container { margin_top: 20px; background-color: white; color: black; }

.welcome { width: 100%; margin-top: 20px; margin-left: 0px auto; text-align: center; }

footer { color: white; background-color: black; }

ul.bottomnav { margin: 0px auto; list-style-type: none; margin: 10px; padding: 0px; overflow: hidden; }

ul.bottomnav li { display: inline-block; margin: 10px; text-align: center; }

ul.bottomnav li a { text-align: center; }

.copyright { margin: 0 auto 0 auto; }

Check if you declared them properly on your html file.

Problem solved, thanks. deleted the "position: fixed;" in #header and instead fixed the logo with "position: absolute;".

header {

top: 0;
left: 0;
height: 100px;
width: 100%;
background-color: white;

}

logo {

position: absolute; height: 100px; width: 150px; top: 20px; margin-left: 10px; }

ul.navbar { list-style-type: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; overflow: hidden; background-color: #333; }

ul.navbar li { float: left; }

ul.navbar li a { display: block; color: white; text-align: center; padding: 14px 16px; text-decoration: none; }

ul.navbar li a:hover:not(.active) { background-color: #111; }

ul.navbar li a.active { background-color: #4CAF50; }

@media screen and (max-width: 600px){ ul.navbar li {float: none;} }

.container { margin_top: 20px; background-color: white; color: black; }

.welcome { width: 100%; margin-top: 20px; margin-left: 0px auto; text-align: center; }

.footer { color: white; background-color: black; }

ul.bottomnav { margin: 0px auto; list-style-type: none; margin: 10px; padding: 0px; overflow: hidden; }

ul.bottomnav li { display: inline-block; margin: 10px; text-align: center; }

ul.bottomnav li a { text-align: center; }

.copyright { margin: 0 auto 0 auto; }
