Description of problem

So the title says it all. I recently started a new website, TOF, and copy-pasted my CSS style sheet from another website to use it since it was all generic coding. However, some of the codes don't work unless I type them twice, and this persists as I add some new codes as well. The codes in question have often worked before on other websites without me having to add them twice, and if I remove one of the two codes, even the old one, the site reverts and it doesn't work again.

Help, please? If there is no solution, I'll just continue pasting codes twice.

Thank you!

Hi @Kira-chan03,

Normally you need only one rule, if you're having to write it twice then there must be an error in your stylehsheet. After reviewing your CSS via the source I see invalid characters that shouldn't belong. I'd recommend removing these characters to prevent errors.

I highlighted it in red : >> /* VARIOUS TRANSPARENCY CODES */

You do not need these characters to create a CSS comment. You only need write /* Comment */
