Media object

Documentation and examples for media object to construct highly repetitive components like blog comments, tweets, and the like.

Basic

Below is an example of a single media object. Only two classes are required—the wrapping .media and the .media-body around your content

Media heading
Cras sit amet nibh libero, in gravida nulla. Nulla vel metus scelerisque ante sollicitudin. Cras purus odio, vestibulum in vulputate at, tempus viverra turpis. Fusce condimentum nunc ac nisi vulputate fringilla. Donec lacinia congue felis in faucibus.
<div class="media">
  <svg class="bd-placeholder-img mr-3" width="64" height="64" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid slice" focusable="false" role="img" aria-label="Placeholder: 64x64"><title>Placeholder</title><rect fill="" width="100%" height="100%"/><text fill="" dy=".3em" x="50%" y="50%">64x64</text></svg>
  <div class="media-body">
    <h5 class="mt-0">Media heading</h5>
    Cras sit amet nibh libero, in gravida nulla. Nulla vel metus scelerisque ante sollicitudin. Cras purus odio, vestibulum in vulputate at, tempus viverra turpis. Fusce condimentum nunc ac nisi vulputate fringilla. Donec lacinia congue felis in faucibus.
  </div>
</div>

Nested

Media objects can be infinitely nested, though we suggest you stop at some point. Place nested .media within the .media-body of a parent media object.

Options

Here are a few options you can use to customize a media object:

Alignment

Media in a media object can be aligned with flexbox utilities to the top (default), middle, or end of your .media-body content.

Top-aligned media

Cras sit amet nibh libero, in gravida nulla. Nulla vel metus scelerisque ante sollicitudin. Cras purus odio, vestibulum in vulputate at, tempus viverra turpis. Fusce condimentum nunc ac nisi vulputate fringilla. Donec lacinia congue felis in faucibus.

Order

Change the order of content in media objects by modifying the HTML itself, or by adding some custom flexbox CSS to set the order property (to an integer of your choosing).

    <h5 class="mt-0 mb-1">Media object</h5>
    Cras sit amet nibh libero, in gravida nulla. Nulla vel metus scelerisque ante sollicitudin. Cras purus odio, vestibulum in vulputate at, tempus viverra turpis. Fusce condimentum nunc ac nisi vulputate fringilla. Donec lacinia congue felis in faucibus.
  </div>
  <svg class="bd-placeholder-img ml-3" width="64" height="64" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid slice" focusable="false" role="img" aria-label="Placeholder: 64x64"><title>Placeholder</title><rect fill="" width="100%" height="100%"/><text fill="" dy=".3em" x="50%" y="50%">64x64</text></svg>
</div>

Media list

Because the media object has so few structural requirements, you can also use these classes on list HTML elements. On your <ul> or <ol>, add the .list-unstyled to remove any browser default list styles, and then apply .media to your <li>s. As always, use spacing utilities wherever needed to fine tune.
