phpList layout will not change

Hi There,
I am using PHPlist for a newsletter subscription used here:

http://rileyburnett.com/newsletter

I am having troubles changing the layout of this page.  I have added the header and footer form the admin panel configuration section, but for some reason I cannot change the position of the text and make the background of the main frame, white for example.

Can someone please help me?

I have tried added in div tags and adding to the css, but it doesn't register.

I hope someone can help me solve this.

I needed to change the header and footer in the subscribe page, not the main config page

you have defined any classes or id's for css according to your source code.

try putting the cell you want with text alignment and a white background table class="main"

and in your css file make a #main{text-align:"center";background-color:"#fff";}
and it should work.

Yep, your suggestion should work.
I have discovered a problem though!
Whenever I edit the header or footer within the configure section of the admin panel, nothing is getting added!!

You can see what I have added as the header in the attached code, but when you go to this page http://rileyburnett.com/newsletter/ and view the source, its not the same.

I have tried editing header.inc from within the config folder here http://rileyburnett.com/newsletter/config/header.inc  but again nothing is changing.

I have checked my file permissions on the folders in config and they are writable.  What is going wrong?  I was able to make some changes (as you can see I was able to add my own header)  but now I can't make any.  



<link href="styles/phplist.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">
</head>
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
<a name="top"></a>
<div align=center>
<table class="main" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 width=710 border=0>

You dont have a footer in your html code...You haven't defined your header either. Your header is here
<img src="images/header.jpg" width="729" height="95"
it is just a basic rip from your ftp server of the image, so when you change it from the admin panel it wont change because it is not a defined field.

Same problem for the footer.

Ok, I need further explanation here.....

What can I add in the defined header and footer code to get this to work.
Why isn' t it reading what I have entered in the config section?

Do you think upgrading to the latest version would help?

I don't understand why updating my header and footer doesn't work
