element not resizing correctly in browser

Recommended Posts

I don't know a lot about media queries but I created them for a page on my website mainly for the resizing of text and all worked well except for an element which is not moving with other elements inside their container, but is being pushed up above them as you size down the browser window.  I've extracted the relevant code and pasted it here.  Can anyone tell me what I should be doing to keep the div called "browse" in the same relationship to the slideshow to its right?  Thank you.

You are overriding you media query css with your own blocks of css.

Here's a list of screen sizes from webtrickshome you can use there.

Screen Size Media Query
Max width 320px @media (max-width: 320px)
Min width 321px and Max width 375 @media (min-width: 321px) and (max-width: 375px)
Min width 376px and Max width 425 @media (min-width: 376px) and (max-width: 425px)
Min width 426px and Max width 640 @media (min-width: 426px) and (max-width: 640px)
Min width 641px and Max width 767 @media (min-width: 641px) and (max-width: 767px)
Min width 768px and Max width 992 @media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 992px)
Min width 993px and Max width 1024 @media (min-width: 993px) and (max-width: 1024px)
Min width 1025px and Max width 1440 @media (min-width: 1025px) and (max-width: 1440px)

 

Generally, I'd use one as:

@media(max-width:767px){} which would cover all smaller screens and another as

@media(min-width:768px){} which would cover all larger screens.

In case of complicated layouts, i'd use something like

@media(max-width: 420px){}

@media(min-width: 421px) and (max-width: 767px){}

and go on to break down the screen sizes and restrict their impact on other screen sizes.
