  2. Hey thanks for the tutorial. However, would have been nice if you used at least 3 boxes to show relative and absolute positioning of elements. This stuff still confuses me a lot.

  3. Great job explaining it. I finally have an insight into the difference between relative and absolute positioning.

  4. Thanks for a great video. Clear and Consise. Is there any advantage to using top, botom, etc. to maring-top, margin-bottom etc.?

  5. Ok. By far the best tutorial on positioning. Know that I am subscribing to your channel NOW! Thank you.

  6. Thanks a whole lot for this video!!!! One of the best tutorials that I have come across so far.

  7. I was struggling with positioning, it would just not register in my head for some reason. I found your video and now I understand it, thank you. I have been studying a course on Udemy but I think I will follow your 30 day course instead. This is perfect teaching material.

  8. So basically let me wrap it up.
    Relative positioning gives element the ability to specify left,right,top,bottom values. Keep in mind that these values are relative to it’s static positioning.
    Absolute positioning it”s almost the same but relative to it’s parent.

    Relative -move element from it’s static positioning(default)
    Absolute-move element relative to it’s parent.
    Hope that helps.Awesome tut nevertheless.

  9. Thanks a lot for this video. The concept is absolutely clear, now that I have tried it myself in the code editor following your explanation. So the absolute position relies heavily on the position of its parent element or relatively positioned parent element.

  10. Thank you very much for this tutorial it has really enlightened my knowledge about most things that I didnt understand sometime ago
