Challenge: Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 26

Link to the challenge:

Hello again.
Could you be more specific?

You can do this by setting its margin-left and margin-right properties to auto

That’s your task above, what issues do you have with it?

i do not understand how to set the margin

Exactly for this purpose margin-left and margin-right properties exist.

There are couple more props for setting margins, you’ll learn them later in the course.

You just need to deal with them, as with other properties.

If more examples and info needed, consider the below. It’s for margin-right. You can find article about any property on this website.

i trid it out and the site said You should set the margin-left property to auto .
margin-right:auto; div {
width: 80%;
background-color: burlywood;
}
h1, h2, p {
text-align: center;
}margin-left:auto;

well, this property(every property actually) should be inside the selector

Hello, did you need help?

(The code you posted is not technically correct. Also we try to discourage posting of solutions, even wrong ones, on the forum as we believe people need to be given time and space to learn at their own speed rather than teaching them to copy and paste).

Mod edit: solution redacted

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.
