Greetings to All,

First of all, thanks Flynn for this template! I learn a lot using it, and I really enjoy the elegance and flexibility of it!

http://www.most.tegyen.com - This is the webpage I am working on.

How could I align the Category Menu, so it would start where the center area starts? (Now it is aligned with the edge of the whole body, starting above the left side.)
Or (and), how could the Category Menu be centered within the central area?

Thanks a lot!

Friendly greetings,

Tamas

Moving the menu inside the middle column would require quite a few changes.

To center the menu, (similar to http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=122 )

Change functions/bfa_header_config.php, line 29

PHP Code:
$cat_menu_bar '<div id="menu2"><ul id="rmenu" class="clearfix rMenu-hor rMenu">' "\n"

to

PHP Code:
$cat_menu_bar '<div id="menu2"><div class="clearfix rMenu-center"><ul id="rmenu" class="clearfix rMenu-hor rMenu">' "\n"
and, line 40

PHP Code:
$cat_menu_bar .= '</ul></div>' "\n"

to

PHP Code:
$cat_menu_bar .= '</ul></div></div>' "\n"

and at Atahualpa Theme Options -> HTML/CSS Inserts -> CSS Inserts, add, for instance, this:

HTML Code:
      ul#rmenu {
border: 0;
}
div.rMenu-center {
border: dashed 1px #000;
}

Thanks, Flynn, for the quick answer...
There might be a problem with it... as at the end there is an "Edit" button in fade, and next to it a cicling icon moving.
Is the answer what I see is complete? Or the system cut off part of it? As you wrote: "This thread is acting weird "... yes, it is.
No other other reply is seen here...

Can you, please, tell me, if the post is complete, or some more instructions are missing.

Thanks!

The post is complete, I was just referring to the rotating thing that won't go away.

I was able to delete it

It is a bit complicated, however, I will try it. :-)

Hi Flynn!

So, I have made the 3 changes... 2 in the php file and one in the Atahualpa Theme Options.

Unfortunately... the menu is still on the left!

See: http://www.coaching.tegyen.com/, please.

What to do??? Please, help, as my CSS knowledge is fare too limited to understand what we did...

Thanks, again... and greetings

Tamas

That menu bar you're using on your site is a page menu, not categories as you said, and you appear to not have made the changes either, or did you change it back? Note how - in the code in this and the other thread - the menu bar is being wrapped into an additional
HTML Code:
<div class="clearfix rMenu-center">
and
HTML Code:
</div>
Please try again, and since yours is a Page Menu Bar, use the instructions in this thread http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=122

Dear Flynn!

I am sorry for my mistakes. Yes, you are right, I wrote Category menu instead of Page menu. Yes, I am using the Page menu.
And, sorry again, I moved the homepage to http://www.coaching.tegyen.com/, what I forgot to mention.
:-(

Thanks for the quick and useful answer!

It works, I went through the description at http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=122
and now the menu is centered: http://www.coaching.tegyen.com/

However, now the color of it is white... around the menu points, and there is a little white line between the image and the menu.
As the image itself is "based on" a black ground, I would like to extend it black for the menu itself, without white line and black all long of the size of the image.
I am using bigger font in the Page Menu, 24px now.

I guess there is something more to add into to the CSS... but what?
:-)

Thanks a lot for your time and for your help!

Friendly greetings,

Tamas

Add this as CSS Insert

HTML Code:
div.rMenu-center {
background: #000000;
border: solid 1px #000000;
}

First off, I'd just like to say how great this theme is. I'm completley new to Wordpress and I wouldn't have been able to get started without this theme.

My question

I've used your above instructions to center my category menu bar. It worked fine, but now I have a dashed border outlining the bar except where there are menu items. I'd like to have no border at all. Can this be accomplished?

Thanks

That's probably caused by this in your CSS Insert

HTML Code:
 div.rMenu-center {
border: dashed 1px #000;
}
Remove the line with border: or replace it with border:0; if that doesn't work. If that doesn't work either post a URL please
