bootstrap - locking elements to bottom center of DIV

Hello,

Please see my 4 callouts   ( Good Drivers, Car + Home etc..)
http://think.darkstarmedia.net/

At this moment I have the buttons (Start Saving Now) Locked to bottom of DIV when in full screen PC mode, as soon as you start to mimimize the screen though, it gets all messed up.

position:absolute;
	bottom: 5px;
	left: 55px;

Open in new window


How can I code this better so my buttons stay at bottom benter of DIV all the time relative to the DIV position and size

I think you are better off to not use absolute positioning.

Also, look at how bootstrap does media-bottom http://getbootstrap.com/components/
<div class="media">
      <div class="media-left media-bottom">
        <a href="#">
          <img class="media-object" data-src="holder.js/64x64" alt="64x64" src="data:image/svg+xml;base64,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" data-holder-rendered="true" style="width: 64px; height: 64px;">

If you're not using Bootstrap an alternative is to make the parent div position: relative.

Here's a jsfiddle demonstrating it.

In a nutshell, if the outer div has position: relative and the inner div has position: absolute then the inner div will position relative to the container.

Just add this style - your container does not have a relative positioning set.

.callout {
  position: relative;
}

thanks everyone, all great answers, this is a text/CSS link (not an image), so the media-bottom doesn't work in this case
