what is the problem exactly?

I was unable to get the first background image to display properly, then not at all.

Weirdly, after changing the CSS property from ‘background-image’ to ‘background’, it worked. I cannot explain this behavior but was finally able to move on from the project.

Thank you,

Mary Lins

Could you send your code?

Seems like you have also put the image in the html code. Am I right? That way when you then define a background-image in css it kind of gets messed up. Removing -image only made it so that you ask for a css-property that does not exist and then the HTML image is displayed as normal :wink: .

No, the image is not in the html code.

Okies :wink: . Any chance you can provide us with the code using the </> button in the message box or by providing a github link?

I have uploaded my code files to github here:

Thx! And found it :wink:

I removed the center center no repeat from the background-image css property because whilst background: supports that, background-image: does not.

Instead I added two more lines to the #mission css properties, et voilà it works:

#mission {
	background-image: url("");
	background-position: center; /* Center the image */
	background-repeat: no-repeat; /* Do not repeat the image */
    display: flex;
    justify-content: center;
    align-items: center;
    height: 700px;
    width: 1200px;
    margin-top: 69px;

Also I noticed you used some css properties that are new to me.

margin-block-start: 1.33em;
    margin-block-end: 1.33em;
    margin-inline-start: 0px;
    margin-inline-end: 0px;

Upon checking online, they seem to be experimental. It may however be wise to use margin-left, margin-right etc. instead. My document writer did not recognize them :stuck_out_tongue: .

Also I noticed one syntax error in your html which may be of no relevance but nevertheless. Your first two images have a / before the closing >.

You are awesome! Thank you so much for your time and expertise! :blush:


Thanks for the additional checks/points, Jannes. I will make those suggested corrections.
