@media queries not working

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am new to html and css, and am having an issue with media queries! I am just trying to get my site to be responsive for these three different px sizes and cant get it to action. I reverted from the second css media query shown below because it was not working at all, not even showing any attempt to change when inspected in the browser. Am I missing something? Thanks!


My @media is as shown:

@media screen and (max-width: 980px) {
@media screen and (max-width: 768px) {    

@media screen and (max-width: 640px) {



I had but reverted to the above when nothing was taking effect..


@media screen @media screen (max-width: 640px) {
    #cwm {
        width: 550px;
        margin: 10px;

            Hello! My name is Tanner Martin. I was born in Texas, but lived in Canada for my Junior High and High School life, so I consider my self Canadian :). None of you know this, but I have an amazing little girl named Olivia!She will turn one on October 5th. I am going to teach her to be a gamer, programmer, and just generally awesome, though she already has the awesome part covered.</p>

            I am a nerd of sorts, I collect video game memorabilia, figures of various genres, i computer game, and build my own PCs. My most played game at the moment would either be Diablo 3, or PuBG (Player Unknown Battlegrounds). I just started playing a new game called Depth, if I were to describe it, you would probably think it is lame; So i suggest you try it out for yourself. Recently I have had to startselling my figures, so my collection isn't what it used to be, but here is an old picutre for reference.. (Still not complete collection)
