If you are able to go here:

http://utenn.dev.campuswebstore.mobi/

notice how the orange colored top nav bar (the one that has "Accessories, Hats, TShirts..." etc.) is pushed over about one inch?

It should be aligned with the T in Tennessee on the left of the main content area.

Same goes for everything below...the catalog items, etc.


I've tried finding the indent using firebug but have not been able to figure it out.

Any help would be appreciated.

Just move the DIV with the id Container over to the left some pixels.

style="position: relative; left: -60px;"

the -60px could be something else.  You may have to fiddle with it.

<div id="container" style="position: relative; left: -60px;">

You can put that into the stylesheet too.

all that does is bump the menu down about 10 pixels.

it does not correct the indent.

you need to add
#main-nav
{
    margin-right:250px; //currently the value is 190px
}

#container
{
   margin-left:180px;
}

=======================================


This suggestion works - but I'd rather not have to do a hack in order to get this work.


In other words -- I'd rather understand why the left:-95px is necessary -- what is making this have to be added in?  Then I can correct the underlying problem.



#container #main-nav {
    width: 960px;
    position: relative;
    background: #F77F00;
    left:-95px;
}

}


:::: completely lost ::::::

Where do you see a margin-right value of 190px   ???

Copy and paste the CSS rule you are seeing.  My current rule looks like this:


#container #main-nav {
    width: 960px;
    position: relative;
    background: #F77F00;
    left:-95px;
}



There is no #main-nav all by itself.

Please post a screenshot of what you are seeing in your debugger.

I see no such CSS rule defined.

Its not defined as a rule ...but its the computed value of the rules which is ultimately used

2 changes:
Make the #container width: 960px instead of the 770px
Add to #content:
width: 770px;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
You can do it directly in the element style
<div id="content" style="width:770px; margin-right:auto; margin-left:auto;" role="main">
