Hey Billy,

I reformatted your code for better readability. For future reference, the Markdown Cheatsheet at the bottom this page conveys best practices for posting your questions on the forum.

An id can only be used once on an html page. A class can be used multiple times. You are using the same id multiple times on your page. See if that fixes your issue.

Seeing the html would help, but you do not have class or id designators on your wrapper and logo. It would also help if you look at how to format code in your post by looking at the markdown sheet. You are also missing * on some of your comments that will mess things up.
