Flexbox properties don't work in one of the containers

Hello, everyone.

I want to distribute the free space between two elements in a container with flex box, but I do some wrong.

The flex box is supposed to make the h3 and p centered along the main axis (grid-direction is column). However, whatever value I type, the h3 and p doesn’t move in any direction.

I tried to fix it with align-content, but still nothing happens.

My code:

div class=“ingrid-text”>

           <h3>Free shipping</h3>
           <p>We make sure you recieve your cake as soon as we have finished making it.>>  ></p>


display: flex;
justify-content: center;

Try align items center rather than content, you have switched the axis with flex direction column so justify works top to bottom

I tried that, but it doesn’t work.

It worked when I just did it, it moved the contents of .ingrid -text to the center.

Just guessing here: try to apply text-align: center, is this what you’re looking for?


text align center works also, either work when I try them on this code

Maybe the browser is playing tricks, because I am on a friend’s MacBook.
I will try on my pc. Hope this is the problem.

Could be browser.
In .ingrid-text the justify content center isn’t doing anything so it could go but the align-content:center; can just be switched to align-items:center; or as @Annestezia said text-align also works.
I always struggle to remember which justify or align I need and whether it’s items or content. Sometimes it’s just trial and error until it works.
Page is looking good by the way
