Task 3, Stage 4 of Responsive Design

Hi everyone,

I'm having issues with the third question regarding the H1. Here's what I wrote:

@media screen and (max-width: 705px)
    {

.grid_1,
.grid_2,
.grid_3,
.grid_4,
.grid_5,
.grid_6 {
    width: 100%;}
  img {display: none;}
  h1    {
    font-size: 2.75em;}
  }

Any help is appreciated.

Tks!

Hi Xavier Vivas

Your CSS code wasn't showing up correctly. I fixed it in your post. For the future, to put HTML/CSS/JavaScript in a forum post:

  1. hit return to create a new line and type three back tick characters ```

  2. hit return to create another new line and paste your HTML

  3. hit return and add three more back tick characters: ``` The back tick character isn't the same as the single quote -- ' -- mark; the back tick is located on the same key as the ~ on most keyboards.

Also to add correct color highlighting add the name of the language after the back ticks like this: ```CSS. Here's what CSS should look like in a forum post:

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
}

Hi Xavier, I tried your CSS code and it passes (even without "love at first bite" part) so I wonder why... just checking, did you make sure to put this at the end of CSS file?

The "love at first bite" was part 2 and that passed successfully, however, for the third question I get: "Bummer! Did you update the size of the level 1 header to 2.75em?".

I'm sure there's a small detail I can't figure out just yet...

After reading your comment, I tried the challenge and got code the same as yours. Maybe you have a syntax error in earlier code?

@media screen and (max-width: 705px) {
  .grid_1,
.grid_2,
.grid_3,
.grid_4,
.grid_5,
.grid_6 {
    width: 100%;
  }
    img {
    display: none;
  }
  h1 {
    font-size: 2.75em;
  }
}

Sometimes it comes down to a colon instead of a semi-colon, or you forgot to close an {} somewhere. Try going back through your code of earlier challenges and maybe that could fix it. I find it's usually something small I did wrong that makes it hard to catch. Even sometimes too much white space (like an "enter" in a weird place) that can throw an error in the code challenges.

I hope this is somewhat helpful. Sorry I don't see the exact problem!

Goodluck!

Thanks Jennifer, indeed, it should be something in earlier code coz apparently I have the right code for this task. I'll close this for now and will try to complete it at some point. Cheers!
