So My code is stuck. I'm doing all they tell me to (from a coding point of view, I've changed the content a bit because "Ollie Bike Sharing" doesn't appeal to me). Anyway, if you've done the course before you will know that THEIR code is an impressive list that goes down the side of the page, but MINE goes down the page, and just pushes any content that's obstructing it. Below is all the code I've used so far? Someone tell me what's wrong please?


  <head> <h1> <center> The Apple Chronicles </center> </h1>
  <title>The Apple Chronicles</title>
  <meta charset="utf-8"/>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="main.css">
  </head> <ul> <li> Home </li> <li> Latest Article </li> <li> Youtube Channel </li>
  <body>
    <h3> Welcome to the Apple Chronicles! </h3> <p> Here, you'll find all you need to get started, make use of, and harness the incredible power that comes with every Mac iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple Watch and Apple TV. </p> With articles ranging from what to do when turning on your new Device, to tips and tricks on built-in apps, to pro tricks using the Terminnal, whether you've just swithed from Android (Which you WILL NOT regret), or you're an old pro who bet your friend R170 that you couldn't find ANYTHING online that you didn't know about Apple, MY bet is you'll find at least ONE thing you didn't know (Sorry about the R170) <p> If you can't find what you're looking for, you can <a href="http://google.com"> Email me</a> <h2>   <p> <h2> Latest Video Totorial </h2>  Let your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch be the command center of your Gulfstream jet with the Gulfstream Cabin Control <video width="320" height="240" controls>  <source src="https://youtu.be/rqyUvys7X90" type="video/mp4"> </video>

this bit of code should be between the body tags not head and also you are missing the closing ul tag

It's still not working. Here's my new code:

<html>
  <head> 
  <title>The Apple Chronicles</title>
  <meta charset="utf-8"/>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="main.css">
  </head> 
  <body> 
    <h1> <center> The Apple Chronicles </center> </h1>
    <ul> <li> Home </li> 
      <li> Latest Article </li>
      <li> Youtube Channel </li>
      <li> Email Me </li>
      <li> About </li> </ul>

I believe this should have the class of center, center is not an HTML tag.

classes work like this:

<p class="class name"> paragraph text </p>

Also you still have a paragraph tag open


#6

So you're saying that if I put this code in, it'll work?


#7

No, don't copy and paste my code, what I'm showing you is the syntax you need to apply it in your code


#8

Sorry, I just joined last Tuesday, and I can't figure out WHAT you're
talking about. Can you maybe give me directions as to what I've gotta do?


#9

New to coding?

I wouldn't suggest just jumping into Make a Website course, Please start with HTML & CSS as you will learn step by step.
