Hi, please look at pamstevensonjewellery.com. I'll attach a screenshot of how it's supposed to look. I'm adding lightbox. (http://www.lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/).

It looks like screen.css is interfering with style.css, or overriding it somehow. Can you help?

Thanks!

without screen.css

in screen.css on line 257 remove background:#fff from the body style.
Then remove background-color: #f7f7f7; from the header style (on line 288 screen.css).
You background image will then show up..

PS: To fix the weird padding around the header image update the header style again (line 288 in screen.css) to change padding: 2rem 0; to padding: 20px;

ok, we're really close! I exchanged the header section at line 288 with the header from style.css. Now there's a white space at the top to get rid of. That may be caused by the menu dropdown that has suddenly appeared, which is also caused by screen.css.

I know that because I commented out screen.css, then uploaded index.html, and that disappeared. I uncommented it and uploaded again, so now we're looking at it with screen.css loaded. Thanks for your help.

( a few minutes later- I don't see the drop down menu anymore, but it was below the home section on the menu a while ago)

Ok, try this
in style.css at line 27 remove the margin-top:15px from header #logo
then in screen.css on line 288 update your header style to look like this
header {
height: 200px;
width: 100%;
margin-bottom: 15px;
padding-top: 15px;
}

Open in new window


just tried this and it works perfectly.
Cheers,
N

Looks great! Only one more question...if you looks at the screenshot at the top of this question, there's not as much space between the navigation and the products as there is now.

You can easily change that by creating a new style to target your content id
section#content {
padding-top: 2rem;
}

Open in new window


just adgust the padding top to fit your desired look.

Quick tip for de bugging future jobs.
Open your web page in Chrome, right click the screen and select "Inspect Element". You can manipulate your css and test out news styles etc.

Thanks! I've been using firebug, and it didn't help at all. I'll keep chrome in mind!
