Home Forums CSS horizontally align button to text area Reply To: horizontally align button to text area


The way your submit button is aligned is dependant on page markup and CSS;

  • Is the submit button inside an element that is creating ‘structure’ and maybe putting it into a place that you don’t expect, or are having difficulty manipulating? (such as a table or nested divs)
  • Are you using a custom CSS reset that is centralising buttons or adding large margins, thus moving them further away from where you’d expect?
  • Maybe CSS from higher up the cascade is affecting alignment on CSS you’ve already tried?
  • Applicable CSS that would otherwise work in the normal cascade may be ‘trapped’ inside a Media Query

There are many things to consider, so in this case, a demo would be more useful than guessing what the markup or CSS is. An illustration of what it is supposed to look like would also be helpful.

Demos also offer a valuable learning experience; In stripping back all other elements and CSS, it gives the OP an opportunity to focus on the parts which are actually affecting their code/presentation.

Please do not dismiss demos. Yes, folks here are clever enough to interpret a description, but there’s no guarantee that my, or another interpretation will be what the OP wants, and guessing wastes time.
