CSS Question

Padding-Top and Padding-Bottom Not Working

For some reason padding-top and padding-bottom are not working for my #functions div.

I can't seem to figure out what is canceling out the CSS to cause this, and for some reason padding-left and padding-right work fine.

I want the #functions div to look like this:

Intended Design of #Vocational

Is there something wrong with my HTML or CSS? Am I approaching this the wrong way?

Answer

This can be done using CSS Flexbox.

For Reference your CSS should be somewhat like:

#savefood, #savemoney, #savetime {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
}

#savefood {
  flex-direction: row-reverse;
}

Look at the snippet below (use fullscreen to view it properly):
