CSS Question

How to center div using JQuery or CSS

I am trying to center my div using the JQuery function I found here. I tried centering my div using CSS as well it does not work. Any direction on where I am wrong would be helpful.

Sorry about the page formatting but I am trying to center "allResults" div which contains all my other divs (Please refer to code attached). According to my understanding, if I can center the main div(allResults, which contains all other divs), divs inside "allResults" div should center aswell.

Answer

You can center a div with only css, you set a width and margin the 0 is for top and bottom, auto makes it center. I would also recommend you not to use ids, if you want to style use classes instead. Also camelCase syntax it not recommended for css, better to use some-class

<div id="allResult">
    ...
</div>

CSS

#allResult {
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 1024px;
    overflow: hidden;
}
