Hide display of Sitelock badge on mobile devices

Currently I have Sitelock badge code in the footer which I put online using Genesis Simple Edits.

We want to setup a media query so that the Sitelock badge does NOT display on mobile devices (but does on desktops) because it gets in way of viewing site content. But, I am not sure how to cite this badge in the css.

Name the containing div then just cite that div by name in your CSS.

I added it to the media query as below:
  
 .footer-widgets-1, .footer-widgets-2, .footer-widgets-3, .footer-widgets-4 {
		width: 100%;
    text-align: left;
    padding: 40px 0;
	}


div.sitelock {
    visibility: hidden;
} 

}

Open in new window


.... and I added a class to the code in the footer but it still displays.  What did I do wrong?
 
<div class="sitelock" style="position: fixed; z-index: 1000; width: 164px; height: 98px; bottom: 15px; right: 15px;"><a href="#" onclick="window.open('https://www.sitelock.com/verify.php?site=sheboyganseniorcommunity.com','SiteLock','width=600,height=600,left=160,top=170');" ><img class="img-responsive" alt="SiteLock" title="SiteLock" src="//shield.sitelock.com/shield/sheboyganseniorcommunity.com" /></a></div>

it looks right to me. However my inspector doesn't show the CSS is loaded anywhere.

I'd also make 2 changes.

1. Reference the div by Id rather than class since this is a one-off thing.
2. Set display: none rather than visibility: hidden

Injecting the css with StyleBot works for me.

I emptied cache.  Still seeing badge on mobile devices.

I have the css in the plugin called simple custom css.

@media only screen and (max-width: 768px) {
  
 .footer-widgets-1, .footer-widgets-2, .footer-widgets-3, .footer-widgets-4 {
		width: 100%;
    text-align: left;
    padding: 40px 0;
	}


div.sitelock {
   display: none
} 

}

Open in new window


Here is footer code.
<div id ="sitelock" style="position: fixed; z-index: 1000; width: 164px; height: 98px; bottom: 15px; right: 15px;"><a href="#" onclick="window.open('https://www.sitelock.com/verify.php?site=sheboyganseniorcommunity.com','SiteLock','width=600,height=600,left=160,top=170');" ><img class="img-responsive" alt="SiteLock" title="SiteLock" src="//shield.sitelock.com/shield/sheboyganseniorcommunity.com" /></a></div>

I don't see that CSS referenced anywhere but even if it was it wouldn't work as you have it right now. To reference an element by id you would need to use div#sitelock. Right now you're using div.sitelock which will reference an element by class, not Id.

   display: none
} 

}

I am not sure why you are not seeing the code in this plugin.  Still not working.  : (

I'm still seeing nothing wrong with the CSS you posted here. I just don't see the reference to the CSS file on your website and the Inspector shows no evidence of the style existing.
