Hello everybody!

I'm completely lost, i'm trying to center a contact form in my "contact" page of my website but i can't manage to achieve it. I use bootstrap and the whole form is inside a row which i already styled with some css. My question is: how can i center the div i created "second_contaier" inside the greater div "main_container" ? I'm lost, lol

This is the html for the form:



This is the CSS i still have to complete:


This is the page still under construction and this is a screenshot of the form not centered:

Well, as you say that you are using bootstrap you probably be using bootstrap classes to achieve this, but in general, centering block elements can be achieved by giving them a specific width (even if it's a percentage) and and left and right margins of auto.
 
Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
