SVG image is playing up (the arrow) on the lake website. instead to go to the center it goes to the left...

.main-header{ background-color: #093145; width: 100%; font-weight: normal; text-align: center; text-transform: uppercase; color: white; padding: 30px 0; height: 180px; font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif; }

img{width: 50px;


with the top css I have the image (arrow.svg) on the left although i am following exactly Gill tutorials...

Can you post a link to the course?

Hi Kris,


is the arrow on the middle. I have tried to reproduce the web site as I am doing some practice at the moment.

The .arrow.svg is going to the left instead to be centered...to resolve it I added the following:

.arrow{ width: 50px; position: relative; left: 50%; padding-top: 60px; -webkit-transform: translateX(-50%); -ms-transform: translateX(-50%); transform: translateX(-50%);


but Gill Hernandez only adding this:

.arrow{ width: 50px;}

and the arrow is perfectly centered....

The first thing I'd do is look at the CSS for the parent elements. The element with the class of arrow can only be the same size as its parent element or smaller, so if the parent element isn't centered, it's likely the arrow class will not be.

If you're following along exactly with the course it could be something simple causing it like a missing semi colon :-)

Hi Jonathan,

I have replicated this:

<!DOCTYPE html>


<head> <title>Project 1</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css"> <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Montserrat" rel="stylesheet">



<header class="main-header">

    <h1>This is my project</h1>
        <span class="title">this ia a main title under the h1 title</span><br>
        <img class="arrow" src="arrow.svg" alt="arrow">



CSS ----------------

/------base style-------/

*{ box-sizing:border-box; }

body { color: #878787; margin: 0;


h1 {
font-size: 5.625rem; /* 90px/16px */ color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 1); text-transform: uppercase; font-weight: normal; line-height: 1.3;}

.title { color: white; font-size: 1.625rem; /* 26px/16px */}

/----Main Styles--------/

.main-header{ background-color: #ffa949; height:850px; padding-top:170px; font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif; text-align: center; }

.arrow{ width: 50px;


And the arrow going to the right handside following the span text and not below the span. I had to add a <br> in HTLM to make it to go underneath but Guil does not use <br>??

It looks like that: open the header and close it so, which one is the parent element? main-header?

<header id="top" class="main-header"> <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span> <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1> <img class="arrow"src="img/arrow.svg" alt="Down arrow"> </header>
