Becoming Adept!

Hi all, hope you can help....

I am nearing completion of the site but one thing eludes me.

The center boxes are not central - I am sure it is a simple fix but for the life of me I cannot see where to fix.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

I checked with IE7 and Firefox and your Center boxes were centered no matter what width I squeezed my browser to.

The Welcome box has centered text. Your News section is left aligned, which is default.

If you are talking about your Box Titles being toward the left in the center, that has to do with the size of the Top Left Content Area section of your Custom Box Borders that the Control Panel uses for the titles. It's 159px wide and centers the title within that space.

Now if you want that title centered completely, Mottie has a great write up on how to make custom boxes using the Advanced Style Settings in Control Panel to bypass the GP defaults. You can find that here:

    Mottie: You bet!

(I can only imagine what he can make with the shoestring and chewing gum...)
