Home Forums CSS Why to use CSS Positioning? Re: Why to use CSS Positioning?


@anika039 I see what you’re saying, but along the way you will come across situations where positioning is the best option. For example:

– putting something in the absolute center of the page
– having something always on the same position on the screen, no matter how much you scroll
– placing an element “over” or “on top” of another element, as if they are layered
– etc. etc.

I understand your reservations but that’s just it — it’s hard to explain why you should use it, and you’ll really get that “a-HA!” moment at one point when you come across a situation where positioning will be very helpful.
