    It seems that there are left and right margins added to the GP recommended “Grid Container” setup?

    If you see my screenshot you will see what I mean: https://prnt.sc/nsknmu

    This is the code that I am referring to. How do I keep the grid container flush and hugging the sides of the parent container?

    Thanks!

          <div class="grid-container">
    
            <div class="grid-50 tablet-grid-50 mobile-grid-100 first-column">
              <div class="alert-coupon">
                This is an alert box.
              </div>
            </div>
    
            <div class="grid-50 tablet-grid-50 mobile-grid-100 first-column">
              <div class="alert-sponsor">
                This is an alert box.
              </div>
            </div>
    
          </div>

    Hi there,

    You will need to give that <div> a second class like alert-box so you can target it with CSS:

    .grid-container.alert-box {
        padding: 0;
    }

    The site you linked also doesn’t match the screenshot you’ve shown by the way.

    Thanks Leo! Hmm, there is still padding though….

    <div class="grid-container alert-boxes">
    
      <div class="grid-50 tablet-grid-50 mobile-grid-100 first-column">
        <div class="alert-coupon">
          <a href="">This is an alert box.</a>
        </div>
      </div>
    
      <div class="grid-50 tablet-grid-50 mobile-grid-100 first-column">
        <div class="alert-sponsor">
          This is an alert box.
        </div>
      </div>

    And here is the CSS:

    .grid-container.alert-boxes {
        padding: 0;
    }

    (I changed .alert-box to .alert-boxes (plural) just b/c there is another reference to that name in the CSS).

    Here is the actual URL: https://testinfosec.wpengine.com/events-in-2019/cyber-security-cloud-expo/

    Maybe the parent container div also needs to have its’ padding removed or made to zero?

    Thanks Leo.

    You can always use browser inspect to see where the padding is coming from:

    Good skill to learn for web developing πŸ™‚

    So in this case, this CSS should work:

    .alert-boxes .grid-50 {
        padding: 0;
    }
