Gap appearing down the middle

To Reproduce, To be able to see the gap, the code has to be viewed in these viewports in Chromium based browsers. The gap does not appear in Firefox.

You can set it to different viewports inside jsitor.

Also, By increasing and decreasing the browser you’re able to see the Gap in the snippet provided. I just checked.

With YouTube Code Removed, No Gap Visible. https://jsitor.com/XT3U947ICr

Is there a solution to fix this gap issue?

Answer

This is a rounding error with floating points when the width of your container is a non-integer (for example, 241.118px). The :before and :after elements will fill 50% of the container, but floating point math is imperfect and may round the result incorrectly, so rather than being 120.559px, it may be something like 120.554px. This causes the widths of the two pseudo-elements to not quite fill the container all the way, resulting in the gap you’re seeing.

A simple, albeit “band-aid-ish” fix is to just increase the width of the two pseudo-elements to something greater than 50% so even if there is a rounding error, the whole container will be covered. I originally suggested 51%, but since the gap will always be less than 1px, you are correct in using calc(50% + 1px) as well.

.slide-wrap:before,
.slide-wrap:after {

  width: calc(50% + 1px);

}
