Need help aligning these boxes

Recommended Posts

hey guys!


I'm just trying to align these "service" boxes on the same line horizontally. I'm not sure why it's happening. It displays fine on code block:  https://codepen.io/annamakesmagic/pen/ZEoOMVq

but when added to the block with the div labelled "lead"  ("Our core service is...") the alignment gets weird. 

Can someone please show me how I can change my code (below) to fix it? Thanks! 


  .lead {
    display: block;
    padding-top: 3%;
    width: 100%;
    padding-bottom: 3%;}
*, *:before, *:after {
  -webkit-box-sizing: inherit;
  -moz-box-sizing: inherit;
  box-sizing: inherit;}

html {
  -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
  -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
  box-sizing: border-box;}

a {
  text-decoration: none;
  margin: 1rem 0;
  font-weight: 600;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  font-size: 1rem;
  letter-spacing: 1px;}

p { font-size: 0.9rem;
  margin: 1rem 0;
  line-height: 1.4;}

.service a {
  color: #d3d3d3;
  display: block;}

.service h4 {
  font-color: #D3D3D3;
  font-size: 1.3rem;
  margin: 12rem 0 0.6rem;}

.services-grid {
  display: -webkit-box;
  display: flex;
  -webkit-box-align: center;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: space-between;
  max-width: 1300px;
  margin: 0 auto;
  text-align: center;
  padding-top: 60px; }

.service { 
  align-items: start;
  background: #fff;
  margin: 30px;
  padding: 30px;
  border-radius: 10px;
  text-align: center;
  -webkit-box-flex: 1;
  flex: 1;
  display: -webkit-box;
  display: flex;
  flex-wrap: wrap;
  border: 1px solid #e7e7e7;
  -webkit-transition: all 0.3s ease;
  -moz-transition: all 0.3s ease;
  transition: all 0.3s ease;
  min-height: 300px;
  max-width: 50%;}

.service:hover {color: #333332}

.service:hover {
  -webkit-box-shadow: 0 5px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.08);
  -moz-box-shadow: 0 5px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.08);
  box-shadow: 0 5px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.08);
  border: 1px solid #f26522;}

.service .cta span {
  font-size: .8rem;
  color: #f265;}
.service .cta:hover {color: #f26522; }

.service > * {
  flex: 1 1 100%;}

.service .cta {align-self: flex-end;}

@media all and (max-width:900px) {
  .services-grid {
    display: -webkit-box;
    display: flex;
    -webkit-box-orient: vertical;
    -webkit-box-direction: normal;
    flex-direction: column;}}

<div class= "lead">
<h2> Our core service is making <br> our <span style="text-decoration:line-through">clients</span> 
partners successful. <br> </div>


  <div class="services-grid">

Hi @AnnaNeedsHelp, it looks like from your live site that you've fixed the alignment (as far as I can see), is this still something that you need addressing?

You code looks pretty good, but there's maybe a typo for the .service h4 top margin of 12rem, should be 1.2rem, maybe? You may want to adjust the padding around the blocks so that they are a bit more responsive on medium sized screens, using a vw value rather than a px. There's also a 50% max width on the blocks that you may want to remove at your mobile breakpoint of 900px (it looks odd at screen sizes around 800px wide).

Please like and upvote if my comments were helpful to you. Cheers!
