    Change the highlighted <div> to <div style="text-align:center; vertical-align:top;">

    NOTE: You can also use vertical-align:middle; if you like that layout better. YOU CAN DO THIS!

      Hi Celebra1,

      Thank-you for the help and encouragement! ;) i tried and it still isn't to what i want and need. i was going to send a screenshot of before and after the change but hey, i don't even know how to do that here!!

      the problem is that the menu links at the top are aligned in the center. before when is the just <div>, it was shifted to the left, but after i make the change to what you suggested it shifts to the right not center.

      is something else the problem that i need to change?

      thanks in advance!!!

        Centering part 2

        The big empty spot on the left of your slideshow is your left column. Go into Settings > Design > Titles & Content > Home > check Hide Left Bar. See if that helps.

          Dear celebra1,

          THANK-YOU so much!!! I followed your steps and it worked!! Except I needed to Hide "Right" Bar. I would have never figured it out and would have ended up paying someone else to do it.

          Thank-you again!!! :)

              Centering - continued

              simply audrey, glad to help. I only passed on info I learned on this forum.

              Thanks for the kind words, PackSecure.

              QUESTION simply audrey:
              You said you wanted to center your slideshow. Did you mean on the page or in the "home" section? My view shows the top menu centered in FF and the slideshow aligned right. In IE I see the menu aligned left and the slideshow aligned right. Which is the "correct" browser rendering?

              Also, a very important consideration is that the slideshow loads s-l-o-w-l-y because it's waiting for Google to deliver it to 3D. You might consider loading the slideshow on 3D to cut down the call time. Visitors are impatient with short attention spans.
