centering text on summary list block

Recommended Posts

Okay, I've been struggling with this and I'm sure someone has a quick solution for this. I want to use a simple summary block at the bottom of a book listing to add the book author's bio. I have title, excerpt, and image enabled. I'd like to vertically center the text on the image, rather than having the text all at the top. I'd also like to increase the padding between the image and the text. Screenshot attached, and I've linked to an example page I'm using as a mockup. Website password is "forumhelp."

You can try the following code

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1653186471018_6907 .summary-content {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  justify-content: center;
  width: 73% !important; /*space between image and content, decrease % to increase the space and vice versa*/
}

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1653186471018_6907 .summary-item {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: space-between;
}
#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1653186471018_6907 .summary-item:after {
  content: unset;
}

Let me know how it goes
