What’s flexbox?

It’s a powerful layout mechanism that lets you solve common responsive web design problems with ease. And with Webflow, you can do it all in 2 simple interfaces.

1. Flex parent settings

Just set a parent element to display: flex, then define alignment, wrap child elements into rows, or reverse the layout.

2. Flex child settings

Then give the child elements their own resizing behavior, alignment options, and even device-specific display order.

What you can do with flexbox

Flexbox can help you solve some seriously tough layout problems—like those below—in seconds.

Split-screen layout

Create a split-screen layout in seconds — without using any grid systems.

1. Make a flex container

Make a flexbox container by adding a div block or section and setting it to Display: Flex.

By default, the layout direction will be horizontal and children will stretch vertically—perfect for this layout.

The parent wrapper is a flex container with horizontal layout.
2. Apply flex sizing to 2 divs to split the screen

Add 2 div blocks to the flexbox container and give them the same class.

Set Sizing: Expand on both divs to make them evenly fill their parent's widths.

Both children have their Sizing set to "Expand".

1. Make a vertical flex container

For this example, we'll need a vertical flexbox container.

Create a flex container and apply Direction: Columnto lay out all nested children vertically.

Note: in a real-world example the container needs Height: 100vh to fill the browser window's full height.

The parent wrapper is a flex container with vertical layout.
2. Apply alignment on main content element

Add 2 elements inside the flexbox container: a main content element, and a footer.

Apply Sizing: Expand to the main content element to make it span the vertical axis.

The main content element has Sizing set to "Expand".

Set the main content element to Display: Flex and apply Direction: Column so that the child elements stack on top of each other.

To center align the children, set Justify: Center and Align Items: Center.

The main content element is a flex container with centered alignment.

1. Make a flex container and set it to “Wrap Children”

By default, child elements in a flex container will try to fit on one line, even if their width exceeds the parent element's.

To fix that, just click the "Wrap Children" checkbox.

The parent flex container has a "Wrap Children" setting.
2. Apply variable width values to inner elements

Nest as many elements as you need and give them all the same class.

Then give them all Width: 33.33% to create a multi-line grid of 3 elements in a row.

All inner elements have 33.33% width.

To make the first element twice as wide, just add a combo class with Width: 66.66%.

The first element has 66.66% width.

1. Make a vertical flex container

This layout works similarly to the "Sticky Footer" layout, but has another flex container nested in the middle section.

Create a flex container and apply Direction: Column so elements inside stack vertically.

Note: in a real-world example, the container needs Min Height: 100vh to fill the browser window's full height.

The high-level flex container has vertical layout.
2. Nest a horizontal flex container in the middle section

Add 3 elements inside the flexbox container: a header, a middle section, and a footer.

Apply Sizing: Expand to the middle section to push the footer to bottom of the page.

The middle section has Sizing set to "Expand".

Add another flex container with 3 children inside the middle section.

Apply Width: 20% to the sidebar elements and Sizing: Expand to the main content area.

The nested flex container has horizontal layout.

Give the parent flex container a negative left and right margins that are the same value as the left and right padding inside of the grid cells to create a consistent gutter.

2. Create grid cells and apply flex sizing

Add as many div blocks as you need. Give them the same class and apply a left and right padding thats the non-negative value of the parent's left and right margin. 

For a equally sized grid cells, apply Sizing: Expand

Auto-sized grid cells.

Or combine auto-sized cells with percentage-based cells.
