Problem with Box Model Lesson


#1


https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-html-css/lessons/box-model/exercises/box-width-height?action=lesson_resume


The code instruction for this part of the exercise is:

1.In style.css, set the height of the content-header div to 320 pixels.

2.Next, set the width of the navigation div to 100%.

I believe I have done this, but when I run the program the lesson says I am in error and I cannot progress. Please help!

I had the same problem and then i put ; next to it and worked!


#3

can you put an example of the code that you used that worked? From the sounds of it you just used an extra ; or something; both my height and width codes have colons already right? Thank you very much for your reply.

Did you ever get an answer to this question? I am on the same thing right now myself?


#5

No, I did not get an answer; but I managed to figure it out somehow.

It was always at the back of my mind that..while I was certainly adding the correct code, I must not have been adding it in the right place somehow.

So, to make sure the .content-header location in style.css was in fact the right one, I changed content-header in index.html to content-headerx. iI then changed the class in style.css to .content-headerx

That fixed it. aparently my width element was correctly placed. my index.html looked thus:

 <div class="content-headerx">
  <h1>BBQ Bacon Burger</h1>
</div>
<div class="content-body">

and my style.css looked thus:

.content-headerx {
background-image: url("https://s3.amazonaws.com/codecademy-content/courses/web-101/unit-6/htmlcss1-img_burgerphoto.jpeg");
background-position: center;
background-size: cover;
position: relative;
top: -50px;
height: 320px;
}

I wasn't expecting it to work, but it did.


#6

I had the same problem-- although for some reason HTML file did not say "class= content-headerx". However, when I switched BOTH html and css files to "content-headerx" I was able to progress.


#7

hi

how did you do that


#8

Thank you, bro!!! I tried the same and it worked!!! Thanks again!


#9

THANK YOU!!!

I was out of my mind! This is such a simple task, and I was stuck with it for an hour.
I haven't changed it to content-headerx, but simply to content.header instead of content-header.
I just wanted to know if ANY kind of change will affect the bug and it did.
Thanks again!

Cheers


#10

Thanks bro,

changing to content-headerx worked for me too.


#11

This is dumb. Your solution worked for me also. Thank you for posting. (I submitted a bug report.)


#12

This worked for me too. What an annoying bug. Thank you for taking the time to post your findings bud!


#13
