cant align my images using CSS basics clearing floats technique

hey guys, no matter which technique i use. even trying Guils i can not get the tree images in this div to line up horizontally. i can get the 1 and 3 inline but not the center to follow his friends thanks justin

<div class="row"> <div class="thumbs1"> <a href="#" target="_blank"><img src="#" alt="web-sites"></a> </div> <div class="thumbs2"> <a href="#" target="_blank"><img src="#" alt="java"></a> </div> <div class="thumbs3"> <a href="#" target="_blank"><img src="#" alt="coming-soon"></a> </div>

.thumbs1, .thumbs2 .thumbs3 { width: 33.3%; } .thumbs1 { float: left; } .thumbs2 {

} .thumb3 { float: right; }

.group:after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; }

I see three issues:

  • the first rule is missing a comma between the ".thumbs2" and ".thumbs3" selectors
  • the rule for ".thumbs2" is missing a "float: left;" property
  • the rule for ".thumb3" is spelled incorrectly (should be ".thumbs3", with an "s")

Plus, I noticed two other things not directly related to the issue:

  • the outer "row" div has no closing tag
  • the "group" class isn't being used in the HTML

Cool, very clear.

You missing , between .thumbs2 and .thumbs3. and I think your html code need to be formated.

Ahh! I’m an idiot! Fresh eyes thank you I’ll follow up!

You are welcome.

YES! floating the #2 left doesn't make sense yet at my level to put it in the center but hell i will take it! i spent an hour last night trying to make it work.

You can actually float all 3 left, they will line up in order. But without a float, a div will occupy an entire line.
