Hi there, this is my first thread post.

I have other posts that solve the %cat-right problem but nobody seems to have a problem with the %cat-center, so I know it must be something I'm doing.

In Header Area>Style and Edit Header Area, I have inputted:
%logo %pages %cat-center.

When I have change it to %cats or %cat-right, it works like it is suppose to but doesn't center when I change it to %cat-center. In fact, %cat-center will look like %cats.

Thanks in advance for any ideas

Here's also a copy of Add HTML/Insert CSS, that may have conflicted with what I'm trying to do:

td#header {
padding-bottom: 15px;
background: url('<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/background-header.jpg') repeat-x top left;
}

what version of Atahualpa and WP?
What is the url?
are you using the Atahualpa menus or the WP menus?
have you tried taking that code out of the CSS Inserts?

I just tried it and it works fine for me.

Sorry, it's 3.5.3, mentioned it in the main title though.

Link is here

I'm quite sure it works fine for other people, but that's just it, I don't know what have I done different to have affected %cat-center to not work.

Using Atahualpa 3.5.3, Wordpress 3.0

using WP menus, because in this version it seems to say not to use them if you're using WP 3.0. Will look into that if that is the cause.

hi there, thanks for your time,

I have read the updates already before posting this thread. It included turning OFF animated menus and it only affects %page-center and %cat-right.

But somehow it affects %cat-center for me. I've even tried turning ON animated menus but that didn't work either.

I'll have a read on those bugfixes again to see what I have missed.

your problem is that you have so many category items that the list is wider than the page will hold so wrapping is occurring. If you cut down the number of Category items in the menu you will see that it centers fine.

Hello,

Yes, you're right! It works for a much shorter menu, especially for one that fits onto a single line.

But if lessening the menus is not an option, might need to use CSS whitespace? But it seems I would have to insert a <br/> somewhere for it break properly to align in the center. Wonder how can I go about doing that?

Thanks again

Hi back again,

I've managed to make my own modifications to create a new widget just below categories menu bar. I need 2 rows of categories menu bar, so I've done it this way based on a previous thread about a custom widget:

http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=6625

However, I do have some widget styling that I've done and would like to keep them that way but would like to remove them for this particular custom widget. I think it's got something to do with inputting new styling in "Add HTML/Add CSS" but I can't seem to figure out the code for it.


I've called this custom widget: cat_2

this is the following style that I would like to remove for this custom widget:
font-size: 11px;
line-height: 1.2;
padding: 10px;
border: solid 1px #b1c7e2;
margin-bottom: 10px;
-moz-border-radius: 8px;
-khtml-border-radius: 8px;
-webkit-border-radius: 8px;

I'm nearly there, thanks again to all of your help!
