Styling an HTML form

So I have made my own HTML form.

I am trying to apply some flexbox styles to position the elements on separate lines and center everything.

However, it only works when I use a universal selector. It doesn't work when I use body or form, or create a class.

Why??

Maybe because 1st in your HTML Text Document You have way to many of the tags you wanna style for example: There's 5 h1 tags And you want to one of the main selectors like h1{}, etc. So in short. Give it classes or ID'S

In case you don't know that

         <h1 class="Header">The New York Times Magazine</h1> //Class 
          <h1 id="Header">The New York Times Magazine</h1>   // ID

Use whatever you like id's or classes It's up to you Amanda. Good luck in your coding journey!

Amanda it would help to see the code that you are using. It is impossible for anyone to help you without it.
