    Hey guys,

    Trying to centre the text on the left column but everytime I create a css rule it effects the right column

    Can anyone please help, Im pulling my hair out

    We are unable to troubleshoot an image – we need to see their markup and CSS – but if you put up a reduced demo in CodePen, we’ll be able to offer suggestions.

    Hi Beverleyh,

    The url above is not an image, it’s a tinyurl link so google doesn’t index the URL :)

    This ought to work:

    .divTableCell:first-child {
    text-align: center;

    Edit – apart from the bottom two apparently…

    Almost, looking to keep the text left aligned but centre the vertical space

    .divTableCell:first-of-type {
      text-align: center;
      vertical-align: middle;

    LOL! My mistake. I was skimming the forum on mobile and thought it was a tinypic URL! Probably couldn’t have been much use on mobile anyway in this case… although CodePens don’t come with the same limitations for mobile users so it’s worth keeping it in mind for the future :)

    No worries Bev :) I do that sometimes too

    Thank you Atelierbram that did the trick.

    I think I’m prejudiced when it comes to centering, lol.
    Didn’t even cross my mind it could be about vertical.

    @motion2082 Have you see this article?

    Newer methods use flexbox:

    div {
      display: flex;
      height: 100%;
      align-items: center;
      justify-content: center;
