    Now I’m wondering if these can be centred …?
    Are you still around, Kathryn …? – if so, is this possible, please?

    This custom CSS should center your site title and tagline:

    #branding {
    text-align: center;

    Let me know if it does the trick.



    DAMMIT! – so simple!

    I must try to remember things like ‘branding’.

    THANK HEAPS! – I think it looks much better!

    Am I allowed to ask your opinion?

    I think it looks good! It kind of balances out the top of the page.

    I must try to remember things like ‘branding’.

    Actually, it’s more a matter of peeking at the theme to find the name of the element you need to apply CSS to. :-) I used a handy tool called Firebug for Firefox. :-) Chrome comes with its own built-in web inspector as well.

    Learning how to target your site’s CSS will help you make certain design changes. Here are some very helpful posts that will help you customize your site with CSS:

    If CSS is new to you, we also have some resources for learning more about it here:

    The more you learn about CSS the more powerful it becomes. Have fun!



    I once used Firefox’s Firebug, but I found fairly recently that I can no longer copy and paste from it – it’s become quite impossible.

    So now I use that Inspect Element Q thinggy, instead.

    My only problem is being unable to judge which is the relevant bit of code: if you take a look at the next screengrab in my media files, you’ll see that I didn’t know I should go back to that part of the code. I am obviously going to have to pull my finger out and LEARN at least something! :-}

    Ha! Good luck – and remember, a little bit of CSS knowledge goes a long way!

    I’m closing this thread and marking it as resolved, but as always, feel free to start a new one if you need further help. Thanks!
