Hi Ryan, It looks like you have the necessary response.css code to have 3 columns. Do you have #gallery id defined within your ul portion of index.html?

I believe so ....

In index.html you are missing a call to your main.css file. I think this is causing the issue you are seeing.

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">

Also missing are the type declaration and the html, head and body containers. These are not causing this specific issue, but are good practice to use.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
      <!-- Metadata -->
  </head>
  <body>
      <!-- Content of document -->
  </body>
</html>
