I have a site here:

www.particletechlabs.com

This is a Joomla 3.2 site and I recently upgraded the Gantry framework to v4.1.20.

After I did this my slideshow was no longer centered on the homepage.

Somehow the container for it has changed.

Below is the code I used but nothing I try works:

.slider-wrapper {overflow:hidden; width:1197px; height: 290px; margin:0 auto;}
.vt_nivo_slider {background:url(http://particletechlabs.com/templates/rt_panacea/images/slideback.png) repeat;}

Any help is appreciated.

Slider wrapper properties have been overridden and I think you will have to hack it by putting the margin:auto inline in  the div with id "vtnivo110". The update just added more bloat and crap.  If you keep adding crap on top of crap, it will reach the point where you can no longer fix anything without it imploding. If move the margin:auto inline does not work, you might already be there.  That might be a good thing if it will force a re-write or re-design to something a little more efficient and maintainable.

yes, I just did the display:inline Cobol suggested but it is still not right. There should be a gray background (slideback.png) that goes 100% across the screen.

Also, before I updated the framework the slide hit the top of the white content area and did not have the shadow it was now.

and now it has automatically shrunk my image to 962x232.

the original is 1197x290.

no idea how that happened.

changed display:inline to display:block and now the slider is the correct size.

however, for some reason, it will not go past the left side so it can be centered.
