Creating columns in an HTML page - Squarespace 5

I would like to have 4 columns to list our equipment.

I have created an HTML page but can only list everything in one long list.

Can someone please kindly please share or advise as to what code I would need to add in the CSS section to achieve this.

Many thanks in advance.

I would write the following html for your page:

<div id="pgCols">
<div class="block first">
<ul style="list-style: none; padding: 0;">
<li>RED Scarlet (PL Mount)</li>
<li>RED EVF</li>
<div class="block">
<ul style="list-style: none; padding: 0;">
<li>Miller Pro Jib</li>
<li>Wally Dolly (20+ metres)</li>
<div class="block">
<ul style="list-style: none; padding: 0;">
<div class="block">
<ul style="list-style: none; padding: 0;">

Then I would write the following CSS:

#pgCols .block {
float: left;
width: 20%;
margin: 0 0 0 5%; 
#pgCols .first, * html #pgCols .first {
clear: both; 
margin: 0;

Let me know how you go with that. Might need to be tweaked a bit.

Many thanks Heids.

I put in the CSS code.

But were do I input the HTML code?

Thanks Hiroe

All good... Just add the html on the page itself.

When in 'Content Editing' mode, click on 'Edit Page'. Then click the 'html' option in the top menu - to the right. Place your html code in place of the text already there - but make sure you finish the lists off. I didn't include all the list items in the code.

Let me know if any of that doesn't make sense. Hope it works for you.
