Hi everyone,

I’m recreating a landing page (originally made with Wix) of a product I created and launched on Kickstarter. I’m having trouble placing the icons of the product spotlight section of the page (the section which reads " Little cable. Big convenience.".

Do any of you have a solution for this?

Thanks!

In CSS you can put z-index: -1; for that class I guess
Try once

You want the icon on the left of the text right?

You can make .spotlight-feature a flex container.

.spotlight-feature {
  padding: 1.75rem 1.75rem;
  display: flex;
}

And then add some margin to the icons.

.spotlight-feature i {
  margin-right: 10px;
  margin-top: 3px;
}

Not sure where you want the vertical alignment on the icons. But the top is probably the best.

One super simple option off the bat is to use floats. So place a class on each of your icons (I used “icons” in my example) and then add this to your stylesheet:

.icons{
float: left;
padding-right: 0.5vw;
}

Wow. This did the trick! You are brilliant.

I based this off of your solution:

.spotlight-feature {
    padding: 1.75rem 0;
    display: flex;
    align-items: center; 
}

.spotlight-icon {
    text-align: center;
    margin-right: 10px;
    font-size: 2.5rem;
    text-align: center;
    width: 20%;
}

.spotlight-text {
    width: 80%;
}

Great simple solution! I gave this a try and it worked but I was trying to stick to using flexbox for most of the CSS positioning.

Appreciate your help!
