Angus Turnbull’s questions for the community

My second project solution.

A few things I had trouble doing. I was unable to figure out why i could not center the entire container into the center of the page. Hopefully this time around I have fixed a few things from the first project, such as phone compatibility.

If anyone takes the time look at this and provide a comment then thank you very much in advance!

Hey @echoturnbull πŸ‘‹πŸ½. Congratulations on completing this challenge πŸŽ‰. You did good πŸ‘πŸΎ. A few things to note: html

  • Your html document shouldn't contain more than one body element. So you should remove the body tag surrounding your h1 element.
  • There is really no need for you to wrap your h1, p tags in extra divs or other wrappers. Since this challenge only contains an image, h1 and p elements. Doing this will make your html a little bit more neat, and you don't have to write a whole lot of CSS. But the method you used is also perfectly fine since you could practice using classes πŸ’ͺ🏾.

CSS To center the container, you have to give a min-height property to the body element because by default, block level elements have a height of 0 and only take the height of their children. The style definition for the body element becomes:

min-height: 100vh;
display: flex;
justify-content: center;
align-items: center;

And any other style you want to give the body.

  • To make your image more responsive, there is no need to set a height and width property to it. This could cause layout issues later on. So the style definition for the image becomes:
display: block;
width: 100%;
object-fit: cover;  

Should be enough.

  • remove the margin: 0 auto 0 auto; from the main selector. The display: flex you added to the body selector will center the main element horizontally and vertically.

  • Avoid using absolute values like px to for defining size or padding of elements. This could cause issues with accessibility.

  • There is no need to set width to h1 and p tags, the text-align: center; property you added to the body element would make sure that the elements are centered horizontally.

Sorry that got too long. You did really good πŸ’ͺ🏾. Once again, congrats on completing this challenge πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

@jonathan401 thanks for taking the time and effort to review and explain those things for me. Should make the next challenge go a little easier and look a bit tidier.

Hi Angus Turnbull, how are you?

I really liked the result of your project, but I have some tips that I think you will like:

1- We have to make sure that all the content is contained in a reference region, designated with HTML5 reference elements or ARIA reference regions.

Example:

native HTML5 reference elements:

<body>
    <header>This is the header</header>
    <nav>This is the nav</nav>
    <main>This is the main</main>
    <footer>This is the footer</footer>
</body>

ARIA best practices call for using native HTML5 reference elements instead of ARIA functions whenever possible, but the markup in the following example works:

<body>
     <div role="banner">This is the header</div>
     <div role="navigation">This is the nav</div>
     <div role="main">This is the main</div>
     <div role="contentinfo">This is the footer</div>
</body>

It is a best practice to contain all content, except skip links, in distinct regions such as header, navigation, main, and footer.

2- Why it Matters

Navigating the web page is far simpler for screen reader users if all of the content splits between one or more high-level sections. Content outside of these sections is difficult to find, and its purpose may be unclear.

HTML has historically lacked some key semantic markers, such as the ability to designate sections of the page as the header, navigation, main content, and footer. Using both HTML5 elements and ARIA landmarks in the same element is considered a best practice, but the future will favor HTML regions as browser support increases.

Rule Description

It is a best practice to ensure that there is only one main landmark to navigate to the primary content of the page and that if the page contains iframe elements, each should either contain no landmarks, or just a single landmark.

Prefer to use rem over px to have your page working better across browsers and resizing the elements properly

The rest is great!!

Hope it helps...πŸ‘

@AdrianoEscarabote thanks for taking the time to review and then write and explanation for me! I appreciate the links as well.

I’ll do some reading and hopefully the next project will look a little better!

πŸ‘ΎHi , congratulations on your solution!

Great solution and a great start! From what I saw you’re on the right track. I’ve few suggestions for you that you can consider adding to your code:

1.Fix the alignment of the whole content using flex and min-height to manage the vertical alignment and make everything centered.First of all put min-height: 100vh to the body to make the body display 100% of the viewport height (this makes the container align to the height size that's now 100% of the screen height) size and display: flex e flex-direction: column to align the child element (the container) vertically using the body as reference.

body {
    font-family: 'Outfit', sans-serif;
    background-color: hsl(212, 45%, 89%);
    text-align: center;
    min-height: 100vh;
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
    flex-direction: column;
}

2.Keep the image responsive. To manage the image size, you don’t need to define the width and height together, if you do it with different values this will make the image lose proportions, to keep the image responsive and respect the container size use img { display: block; max-width: 100%} this way the image resize with the container whatever its size.

3.Add a margin of around margin: 20px to avoid the card touching the screen edges while it scales down.

4.Use relative units as rem or em instead of px to improve your performance by resizing fonts between different screens and devices. These units are better to make your website more accessible. REM does not just apply to font size, but to all sizes as well.

Here's my solution for this challenge if you wants to see how I build it: https://www.frontendmentor.io/solutions/qr-code-component-vanilla-cs-js-darklight-mode-nS2aOYYsJR

✌️ I hope this helps you and happy coding!

@correlucas thanks for the feedback! Appreciate the time taken to go through my code!

I’ll make sure to check out relative units to use instead of px.

Next challenge should hopefully be an improvement!
