Yea I tried to change up the code and try what you had coded in but nothing has changed the end results I wonder if I could possible just use the class or id selector on just one picture and somehow move it up with a command I tried making the picture smaller but nothing happened...

From the looks of it, it seems like the images are of different sizes- which is causing the 2nd line to be pushed down. You could fix this by specifying a height on your images (CSS), or by cropping them to a uniform aspect ratio before uploading. If you don't feel like doing either of those and are relatively experienced in javascript/jquery, you can check out the masonry plugin: http://masonry.desandro.com

Well I'm really new to coding and feel like their must be something I'm doing work and a solution to this! So I made all 4 pictures on the webpage the same size 1024x768 and it is the same result which really makes no sense since they are smaller pictures :(..... http://s1358.photobucket.com/user/Bkprodigy5150/media/Untitled_zps84dad3e3.png.html That's the link to the end result with different images plugged into the code that are all the same size.

I guess the answer to this simple question is 2 hard GG

Hi Jonathon,

I answered a similar problem here: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/my-workspaces-site-doesnt-quite-look-like-the-video-after-this-lesson-and-i-cant-see-why

See if that helps you.

The problem and solution should make more sense once you get to the responsive part of the course.

The only way I see fixing this problem is later down the road when I figure out how to use javascript...

javascript should not be needed for this.

Just to be clear, I posted some css in that answer that is to be saved and not used until you get to the 3 column layout video that I linked to.

If you put the following into main.css then it should fix your current 2 column layout problem. (Add the nth-child part)

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;

/* Add this */
#gallery li:nth-child(2n + 1) {
  clear: left;

If you save and refresh then that should fix what your screenshot is showing unless you have some other html or css problems.

I have that exact code and used the validators for css and html I just wish I knew somebody to walk me through this via screen sharing. When I got to that part of the lesson I thought it would fix it and I even messed around with various nth-child inputs and none seemed to fix it or push the pictures into the right place with the declerations you have suggested.

About all I can suggest at this point is to post your gallery html here and the css relating to the gallery from both main.css and responsive.css if you're at that point. Not the whole files just the gallery related parts and I'll take a look.

See this post for how to do that: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/posting-code-to-the-forum

Yea I tried with the code you left for the nth child to clear before the nth child to the left. I just went on with the course and have just purchased a web domain and host for this project of mine and still see this problem which kind of makes my website look a little sloppy lol. Maybe we could skype and share screens and you could help a pal out?
