Horizontal alignment

Right now my users are displaying vertically and staggered towards the right. I would like them to display horizontally side by side. I know this is a very simple to do however, I am having a hard time getting it to be how I would like. Thank you in advance.


<div class="page-header"> <center><strong><h1> All Users </h1></strong></center> </div>

<div class="col-md-offset-4 col-med-8">
  <% @users.each do |user| %>
  <div class="user horizontal-align">
     <%= link_to image_tag(user.avatar.url(:thumb)), user %>
     <br><%= link_to user.name, user %></br>
        <% if current_user.admin %>
     <%= link_to "Delete", user, method: :delete, data: { confirm: "Are you sure?" } %>

    <% end %>
  <% end %>

<div class="center">
<%= will_paginate @users, renderer: BootstrapPagination::Rails %>

User CSS

.user {
margin: 0.2%;
display: inline-block;
horizontal-align: right;
height: 200px;
width: 200px;

Make sure your wrapper "col-md-offset-4 col-med-8" is wide enough for the amount of user elements you output, otherwise your inline-blocks will be put on the next 'line'. Also your horizontal-align css might be tampering with your user class. Also its text-align not horizontal-align. And to make the inline-blocks, make sure to also include vertical-align:top to ensure they all line up side to side.

Otherwise it should work fine, see here: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/Frkbj

Thanks Chris!
