Why wont my position code work?


im trying to position text but it wont react to any code..



<p style="text-align; right: 175px">Nationalgarde</p>


p {
    text-align: relative;
    right: 175px;


Your inline styling isn't same as your external styling of the paragraph element for the text-align. It's incomplete.

Also, if you're using the external which looks fine, hope you linked that sheet?


Yea the are both linked. thank you for a response.

I'v changed them and they still seem to have no change.


<p style="text-align: relative; right: 175px">


p {
    text-align: relative;
    right: 175px;


You didn't close your paragraph tag also.

<p style="text-align: relative; right: 175px"></p>


I Did here is the full code:

<p style="text-align: relative; right: 175px">Words go here</p>


Rather than use text-align, try position . But at right: 175px, I don't think it will display on your screen.


Ok its works. Position seemed to have done the trick. Thank you for your time and help


You're welcome.

Have fun coding! :slight_smile:


i know, problem is already solved. but take a look at the possible values for text-align, might be useful.

Paragraphs are block level elements (just like div, heading (h1..h6), and more), and left, right, bottom and topic do not work on static element (block elements have a static position by default), either make the paragraph have a relative position (which you did) or use margin, but that of course depends on the rest of your code and the ultimate goal


Ok is see, thank you for informing me :slight_smile:
