Issues with class/id selectors

Hi there.

I’m having an issue with my class/id selectors.

This is the code I am currently using within the HTML.
[COLOR=“blue”]

<div id="my-login-bar">
<img class="logoutimage" src="img/icon-logout.png" />
<a class="loggingout" href="LOCATION">log out</a>
</div>

[/COLOR]

LOCATION is the equivalent of some PHP code I have in there.

In my CSS file the #my-login-bar has a position and width etc. However at the moment the image with the class .logoutimage sits too high beside the link. But when I change the margin-top or padding-top in the .logoutimage it also pushes around the link. And vice versa when I try altering the margin-top or padding-top in the class .loggingout for the link.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Abi

Hi absticles, welcome to SitePoint! :slight_smile:

Sounds like you need to remove top/bottom margin and padding and instead use something like this:

.logoutimage {vertical-align: middle;}
