Thanks Everyone For Your Help And Patience

Thanks Everyone For Your Help And Patience, The Website Is Completed And It Looks Fabulous Except For The Headers (They Seem To be On The Left Side)

I Used This In CSS

title {

padding: 10px 0px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center; }

copyright {

border-top: 8px solid #2A0400; padding: 10px 0px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center; }

Hi Crystal,

There's a special way to put HTML/CSS/JavaScript into a forum post so that it's more readable:

  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%;
}

On mine the backtick is to the left of the 1 key along the top

Did you make sure to define a width for the container your header is in?

No I Didn't Thanks Matt

Thanks Dave

The Title Still Is Not Centered

#title {
padding: 10px 0px;
 margin-left: auto;
 margin-right: auto;
text-align: center;
}

It might be helpful if you also added your HTML
