    Hey guys, it’s been a very long time since I’ve touched HTML/CSS but I’m moving back in that direction. I need to build an online portfolio, and was wondering which method is more usable in December 2016. For instance, would a grid layout even hold up across browsers? Should I rely on the old float and absolute positioning techniques from years ago? What say you?



    It depends on how you want it to look. Flexbox is a good option for laying things out in a horizontal or vertical row. A grid system (like bootstrap’s) is still a viable option as well. Support for css grids is still pretty non-existent, so don’t try to use them. If you want a pinterest-type layout use masonry.js or css columns.

    You shouldn’t need absolute positioning, except for maybe a lightbox/modal or something.
