View Full Version : Centering a menu

02-03-2007, 12:09 AM

I'm using the menu that I got from this website - http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/csstopmenu.shtml

It's sits more left than centered. Can anyone please help me. I want to center the menu. I've tried the <center> tags and the <p align="center"> tags, but that doesn't work. I don't know css or js very well, but it may be something in those files. Please help me center my menu on my pages. Thanks, Steve

it might be easier if we got a link to your site

agree, it would have been nice to see what you have so far.

Well, I didn't look at it so carefully, but it seems that the <ul> element is floated. This is why it is hard to center it.

You may have to put it in a one-cell table (which will shrink in size depending on the content):

<table id="dummytable" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr>
<td>here goes your menu</td>

together with:

#dummytable {
margin: 0 auto;

I don't know if there are easier ways. Maybe someone else knows.

Mainly, this is because we don't have full support for display: inline-block in IE.
