This is the eleventh post in a series examining modern CSS solutions to problems I've been solving over the last 13+ years of being a frontend developer. Visit to view the whole series and additional resources.

How could I write a series called "Modern CSS Solutions to old CSS problems" without covering the classic question:

"How do I center a div?"

Well, this new resource has you covered! We'll look at 3 categories:

  • Vertically and Horizontally (XY)
  • Vertical (Y)
  • Horizontal (X)

Each category shows solutions that explore using grid, flexbox, and block element layout.

Check out the full guide or jump to one of the following sections:

  1. Vertically and Horizontally (XY)
  2. Vertical Centering (Y)
  3. Horizontal Centering (X)
