Centering content middle page

I have created 4 info boxes using HTML and CSS but I cant seem to center the 4 boxes on the middle of the page (horizontal centering), I cant see what I'm doing wrong. Does anyone have any ideas? Anything helps, cheers!

Answer Source

Because your list is display: inline-block;, you can simply add a text-align: center; to your .info-boxes section. I'd also suggest removing the padding from your <ul> so that the items are truly centered:

.info-boxes {
    text-align: center;
}    

.infobox-list {
    display: inline-block;
    text-align: center;
    padding: 0;
}

Full snippet:

 .info-boxes {
    text-align: center;
 }    

.infobox-list {
    display: inline-block;
    text-align: center;
    padding: 0;
}

ul, ol, li {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-position: outside;
    list-style-type: none;
}

    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
}
