header > img not selecting working

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by CactusWren, Jul 21, 2020.

    On my website*, I can't select a particular image (in order to style it to width: 180px). Note that it is currently the right size because I was forced to use inline style, but I want it be controlled with CSS.

    It is an img inside of a header parent, but:

    header > img

    doesn't select it. Neither does img#logo (an id I put on it).

    Weirdly, this works perfectly both when directly opening the site from my C: drive and while opening it using my ampps local host, also on my computer. The site is being hosted at SiteGround. I have to admit I've had some strange little issues with sites there before, maybe due to caching (although I thought I turned all that off).

    Can you post your HTML code here. Just the part you're trying to style.
    Also post your css code.

    But generally, it could happen if your css file is not being loaded properly. Try putting the css styles in the <style></style> tag in your HTML file and see if it works. If it does, then the problem is the way you added the external css file.

    If it doesn't, then you must be selecting the wrong element, so I'll have to see some code

    You were right, when I put the <style> in the head, it worked. Here is the working code, including the bottom part of <head> that includes the new style. the <style> part is new but everything else is the same. I'll put the CSS beneath it, with the img part bolded. The weird thing is that it seems to be taking the rest of the css fine. Although... I have to admit, there have been tiny discrepancies here and there that I haven't hunted down yet. There tend to be minor differences between my local version and what shows up online.

    <style>
          header > img {
    width: 150px;
    }
    </style>
        </head>
      
      
        <body>
      
        <header id="top">
            <img src="images/logo.png" id="logo">
            <h1>Bona Fide <span class="contrast">Bankruptcy</span></h1>
            <nav class="grow">
                <ul id="mainMenu">

    It could be a browser cookie. Add something like ?version=0.1 at the end of your style.css like so:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css?version=0.1">

    Save your index page with the new version. Now your .css file will load up like it's a new file. If you make another change(s) just change 0.1 to 0.2 and so on.

    I created a codepen at https://codepen.io/itamer/pen/WNrPrOK

    With your css put into the actual css file, at the bottom so that we know the reset won't mess with it, it works just fine.

    If it worked, and most part of your external css Worked, then you are loading the css file properly. The issue is most likely precedence. Meaning that a different rule might be overriding header > img. For example, on line 65, width is set to 180px.

    Try putting !important after your css rule.

    For example:
    header > img{
    width: 150px !important;
    }
    Code (CSS):
    That should work if your issue is precedence.

    Don't forget to remove the <style></style> tags in your html so you won't get false result

    Also, to avoid the cache issue, if you use Chrome, you can also try this:

    • Press Ctrl+Shift+J in Chrome
    • Go to the Network Tab
    • Click on "Disable Cache"
    This should prevent Chrome from Caching your files

    Unnecessary.
    The logo has an id, it's just about the order that the page reads the css

    Reporting back, I took out the <style> in the head to begin testing, and nothing happened (ie, it is now being correctly styled by the css). Could this be an issue with the host?

    It worked when I opened it in my browser from C:, while using my ampps server localhost, and in the codepen, but it _didn't_ work when uploaded to the server.

    It _is_working, but it wasn't working before, even though everything else was the same. I'm wondering if there's something weird with the host, like caching or something.

    More likely to be clientside with caching in your browser.

    That reminds me that I installed an extension to deal with that. Will test.

    This could be a hosting issue as well.
    To be sure, always write the IP address directly into the host file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\host ).
    For example (line in hosts):
    104.73.74.43 site.com www.site.com
    Then you will see for sure whether the problem is in the browser cache or hosting.
