Fixing vertical discrepancies with CSS

+2
−1

I have a "Our menu" webpage automatically created with Drupal 9 Views module which presents a miniature version of each menu dish webpage in that "Our menu" webpage (illustration image below).

My problem

The Drupal 9 Views module doesn't allow styling with CSS besides adding theme-dependent classes so generally the output of displaying a miniature version of each menu dish webpage in one single "Our menu" webpage is quite messy as with the following vertical discrepancies:

  • No minimal height for the heading areas
  • No minimal height for the images
  • No minimal height for the notes chapter

An image to visually describe the visual problems I have recognized

My question

What CSS approach will you take to fix the vertical discrepancies?

I'm not familiar with Drupal, but I would do this with CSS Grid. One possible example looks like this:

<html>
  <head>
    <style>
      .menu-container {
        display: grid;
        grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
      }
      .menu-container > * { border: 1px; border-style: solid; }
    </style>
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="menu-container">
      <div><h2>Vegan Tali</h2></div>
      <div><h2>Vegan Burger</h2></div>
      <div><h2>Falafel</h2></div>

      <div><img src=tali.jpg></div>
      <div><img src=burger.jpg></div>
      <div><img src=falafel.jpg></div>

      <div><p>Notes: tali notes here...</p></div>
      <div><p>Notes: burger notes here...</p></div>
      <div><p>Notes: falafel notes here...</p></div>

      <div><p>Price: 120</p></div>
      <div><p>Price: 80</p></div>
      <div><p>Price: 75</p></div>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>

That arranges the children of .menu-container left-to-right in three columns, and preserves alignment between items in the same row/column. The border is unnecessary but makes it easier to see what's going on. There are many other possible variants; the link has a comprehensive list.

(I'm not entirely happy with the above; I'd prefer to group the child divs by menu item instead of visual row. I think that is possible but I'm not sure what incantation will produce it.)
