@media (min-width: 951px) {

body {
	margin: 0px auto;


nav {
     background: #1d1f21;
     position: fixed;
     top: 0;
     width: 100%;
     height: 80px;
     clear: left;
     overflow-y: hidden;

#full {
    position: initial;
    top: 80;
    width: 100%;
    height: 300px;
    background: red;

#city {
    position: initial;
    margin: auto;
    float: left;
    margin: 15px;
    padding: 15px;
    width: 300px;
    height: 300px;
    border: 1px solid black;

My question is why does the div 'full' set to 80px down the page and it starts directly behind the nav div? If there is a better way to post I'm happy to do it, so far this has only been a resource first time asking a direct question.

In order to move it, the position has to be set to "absolute", "relative" or "fixed"


Also, you must specify units in CSS except when the value is 0, since 0 is the same for all units.


This rule won't work:
top: 80;

because you forgot to specify "px" as the unit.

You should not be using position unless really necessary, and only IF the same result cannot be achieved using float: margins or padding.


Using position: fixed for nav is understandable, but not for the others.


The default styling is placed above media queries, only the styling that changes for specific device widths is placed within media queries.
