Add the code you're working on and i'm sure someone can point you in the right direction.

Actually I fixed it, I compared both mine and nick's code in a difference checker and changed some flawed values I had, yet I can't find excatly what was the mistake, I'll add both texts before the difference, if someone would be willing to take the time and look for the appropriate change, I'll try to figure it on my own too:

My code:

/***************** General ******************/ body {

font-family: "Open-Sans" , sans-serif;

}

wrapper {

max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 5%;

}

/green hyperlinks/ a { text-decoration: none; }

img {

max-width: 100%;

}

/***************** Heading ******************/ header {

float:left; margin:0 0 30px 0; padding: 5px 0 0 0; width: 100%;

}

logo {

text-align: center; margin: 0; }

h1 {

font-family: 'Changa One', sans-serif; margin: 15px 0; font-size: 1.7ems; font-weight: normal; line-height: 0.8ems; }

h2 {

font-size: 0.75ems;
margin: -5px 0 0;
font-weight: normal;

}

/***************** Navigation ******************/ nav {

text-align: center; padding: 10px 0; margin: 20px 0 0; }

nav ul {

list-style::none; margin:0 10px; padding: 0; }

nav li {

display:inline-block;

}

nav a {

font-weight: 800; padding: 50px 10px; } /***************** Footer ******************/

footer {

font-size: 0.75em; text-align:center; clear: both; padding-top: 50px; color: #ccc; }

.social icon {

width: 20px; height: 20px; margin: 0 5px; } /***************** Page portfolio ******************/

gallery {

margin: 0; padding: 0; list-style: none;

}

gallery li {

float: left; width: 45%; margin: 2.5%; background-color: #f5f5f5; color: #bdc3c7;

}

#gallery li a p {

margin: 0; padding: 5%; font-size: 0.75em; color: #bdc3c7;

} /***************** Color ******************/

/body background white, text grey/ body {

background-color: #fff; color: #999; }

/green header, darker green border/ header {

background: #6ab47b; border-color: #599a68;

} /white first and second lvl headers/ h1,h2 {

color: #fff;

} /darker green nav mobile devices/ nav {

background: #599a68;

} /nav and visited nav white/ nav a, nav a:visited {

color: #fff;

} /selected and hovered over nav darker green/ nav a.selected, nav a:hover{

color:#32673f;

}
