wrapper div

Why did they give the class of wrapper to the div?

Isn't there already a div with the class of wrapper in the header.php include?

I know you can have multiple instances of classes, but isn't the wrapper for the whole page and if so, wouldn't you now have 2 wrappers on the page?

It's been a while since I've taken the course but my assumption is this is to provide a wrapper for content rather than the interface itself.

Actually looking at the course name again I've not yet taken this course but again there must be a consideration of CSS media query breakpoints going on here. Have a place and see if there's any negative effects to the web site you're building of not having the second wrapper div. :-)

I got confused - the 1st wrapper was for the nav and had opening and closing tags on the header include.

I thought the 1st wrapper div was for the whole finished page (like a main tag) and the closing div tag was on a separate include/file!

Thanks for the help, the tip about trying it really helped.
