Media Objects

Bootstrap provides an easy way to align media objects (like images or videos) together with content. Media objects are often used to display blog comments, tweets and so on:

To create a media object, add the .media class to a container element, and place media content inside a child container with the .media-body class. Add padding and margins as needed, with the spacing utilities:

Example

<div class="media border p-3">
  <img src="img_avatar3.png" alt="John Doe" class="mr-3 mt-3 rounded-circle" style="width:60px;">
  <div class="media-body">
    <h4>John Doe <small><i>Posted on February 19, 2016</i></small></h4>
    <p>Lorem ipsum...</p>
  </div>
</div>

Nested Media Objects

Media objects can also be nested (a media object inside a media object):

To nest media objects, place a new .media container inside the .media-body container:

Example

<div class="media border p-3">
  <img src="img_avatar3.png" alt="John Doe" class="mr-3 mt-3 rounded-circle" style="width:60px;">
  <div class="media-body">
    <h4>John Doe <small><i>Posted on February 19, 2016</i></small></h4>
    <p>Lorem ipsum...</p>
    <div class="media p-3">
      <img src="img_avatar2.png" alt="Jane Doe" class="mr-3 mt-3 rounded-circle" style="width:45px;">
      <div class="media-body">
        <h4>Jane Doe <small><i>Posted on February 20 2016</i></small></h4>
        <p>Lorem ipsum...</p>
      </div>
    </div> 
  </div>
</div>

To right-align the media image, add the image after the .media-body container:

Example

<div class="media border p-3">
  <div class="media-body">
    <h4>John Doe <small><i>Posted on February 19, 2016</i></small></h4>
    <p>Lorem ipsum...</p>
  </div>
  <img src="img_avatar3.png" alt="John Doe" class="ml-3 mt-3 rounded-circle" style="width:60px;">
</div>
