DIV align bottom right (or left!)

Find out how to align a DIV to the bottom left or right.

This was always one of those problems that I had with CSS – getting the content to align to the bottom of it’s containing DIV, be it left or right align. So here’s how to do it.

The key is to use to the “position” property. Give your containing DIV a relative position and the content an absolute position.

I find these things easier if you can just take an example page and play with it in your own time so download this single HTML page and play away.

For those that like the code here it is:


width: 300px;
height: 200px;
border: solid 1px #000;
position: relative;

right: 0;
bottom: 0;
position: absolute;

left: 0;
bottom: 0;
position: absolute;


<div id="container">
<div id="bottom-right">
bottom right
<div id="bottom-left">
bottom left
