  • # February 11, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    I’m trying to target a specific H2 tag that’s within a DIV, how do I do it?

    is this correct?

    .divname h2 { }

    @hendrix940, that targets all h2’s within `.divname`, if you need specificity, let me see the code in use and I might be able to help.

    <div class="column-center-outer">
    <div class="column-center-inner">
    <div id="main" class="main section">
    <div id="Blog1" class="widget Blog">
    <div class="blog-posts hfeed">
    <div class="date-outer">
    <h2 class="date-header">
    <span>Monday, February 4, 2013</span>

    @hendrix940, in that case that you provided the selector would be ` span`

    If you’re trying to target a specific h2 _within_ a div, and the h2 doesn’t have a specific class like the `.date-header` in your example, you could pick it with the `:nth-child` selector..

    Okay, there it is @chrisp thank you very much for your help. I’m trying to get the date ‘MONDAY, FEB 4, 2013’ to align LEFT. … AND i’ve already targeted the H2 tag to align RIGHT … so I need to specifically target the H2 within class ‘DATE-HEADER’

    @hendrix940, you gotta put the css in that comment in to the pen, also, `span` is an inline element, so you’re better off leaving the span out.

    Okay I understand. I’m test now. Thank you very much.
