How to Vertically Center Text and Icons
In the original screencast video for the vertical-align property, we looked at a couple of methods for centering elements vertically. In this article we’ll outline three different methods for vertical centering – something that always used to be quite tricky but is now a breeze to accomplish.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.

In this article I will show you how to center vertically and horizontally using CSS3 transform property. Centering horizontally is easy, but vertical alignment has always been a bit tricky with CSS.
With just 3 lines of CSS (excluding vendor prefixes) we can with the help of transform: translateY vertically center whatever we want, even if we don’t know its height. The CSS property transform is usally used for rotating and scaling elements, but with its translateY function we can now vertically align elements. Usually this must be done with absolute positioning or setting line-heights, but these require you to either know the height of the element or only works on single-line text etc.
Flexbox is extremely useful in layout in modern web design. However, one thing it’s not good at vertically aligning wrapped text in some circumstances. Returning to the example I detailed last week, the solution works really well when the text for both links is the same length, but when the text of one link wraps but not the other, the result is out of alignment...
Let’s talk about vertical alignment in CSS, or to be more precise how it is not doable. CSS has not yet provided an official way to center content vertically within its container. It’s a problem that probably has frustrated web developers everywhere. But not to fear, in this post, we’re going to run by you a few tricks that can help you imitate the effect.
In this tutorial, we're going to take a look at how to build a horizontal accordion slider using CSS 2D transforms and a bit of jQuery.
Typically, the trickiest part about this kind of horizontal accordion is getting the text on the accordion "spines" to display vertically, so people usually use images to display the text. It's not simple, but using some CSS 2D transforms, we can actually make the text display vertically without using images.
I know many people have wondered how to center their content both horizontally and vertically but never managed to find a solution on how to do this using CSS. I have seen people use tables to accomplish this, in this tutorial I will show you how it can be done.
Method to center elements vertically using only CSS. Even when this method has been used before, it’s not commonly mentioned, but now it’s brought to you in a simple Codepen snippet.
Vertical centering is a firm favorite of designers – for both print and digital media. But aligning things vertically with CSS is not the easiest thing to do. This issue is made worse in a world of multiple devices and responsive design as we need our elements to be flexible in height – which can make calculating their vertical center quick tricky.
Icons. They're popular. They help complement content (most of the time). And yet they can be a pain in the neck. Once you've decided on a format (SVG or icon font?) and designed the set, there are still other considerations, many of which pop up while you're coding.
