CSS Class Style specific element

I am trying to center the title, but it is still aligned to the left. What am I doing wrong?


.card-title {

 text-align: center;


Lakesha, Would really need to see your html as well to best troubleshoot your issue

I think I erased my work space. I am trying to see if I can recover it.

Without seeing the code, I'd guess that the element with the class "card-title" has a flow display style (not "block"), or is width-constrained to fit the contents closely.

For center alignment to work, the element must be wider than the contents, and either centered itself, or span the entire document width.

Thanks Seth and Stephen. I had to start over, because I accidentally erased my work by starting a new work space. I will let you guys know how it works out when I get back to this spot. Thanks for your help.
