CSS Question

I've tried using vertical-align and color in static_nav div but it didn't work. Is this because its inside of the header? how would I fix this?

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html lang ="en">
<meta charset = "utf-8" />
<head>
<title>Example Page</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Web_Design_01_Stylesheet.css" />
</head>

<body>

<div id = "container">
<header>
<div id = "static_nav">
<nav>
<a href="Home">Home</a>
<a href="About Us">About Us</a>
<a href="Contact Us">Contact US</a>
<a href="Gallery">Gallery</a>
<a href="Member Login">Member Log-in</a>
</nav>
</div>
</header>

<div id = "block_two">
<p></p>
</div>

<div id = "block_three">
<p> Block Three </p>
</div>

<div id ="block_four">
<p> Block Four </p>
</div>

</body>
<div id = "end_block">
<footer>
<p> This is where the footer would go </p>
</footer>
</div>
</div>
</html>


Here is the CSS

body {

height: 100%;
width: 100%;
max-width: 100%;
overflow-x: hidden;
margin: 0;
}


Here is the #static_nav nothing happens when I do that. I'm not quite sure how to remedy this. I've been able to modify the other divs but I'm not to sure why I can't in this case.

div#static_nav{

font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
padding-top: 10px;
text-align: right;
width: 100%;
height: 5vh;
background-color: #000000;
position:fixed;
opacity: .75;
color:;

}


div#container {

margin-top: 10px
height: 10vh
width: 100%;
background-color: #16BA81;
color:;
}


Also, "text-align: right" pushes the text to the right side border. How would I add a little space between the border and text so that its not directly on the border. I tried padding and margin but it didn't move it.

Thank you for the help.

Answer

To color the links in #static_navbar, you have to style them directly. Otherwise the browsers default link color will be used:

div#static_nav a {
  color: white;
}

To vertically align the links, one possibility is to use the padding of the #static_navbar on top and bottom, e.g.:

padding: 10px 0;

Also make sure, that your markup is valid. Your closing body take hast to be set directly before the closing html tag.

body {
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;
  max-width: 100%;
  overflow-x: hidden;
  margin: 0;
}
div#static_nav {
  font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
  padding: 10px 0;
  text-align: right;
  width: 100%;
  background-color: #000000;
  position: fixed;
  opacity: .75;
}
div#static_nav a {
  color: white;
}
div#container {
  margin-top: 10px height: 10vh width: 100%;
  background-color: #16BA81;
}
