Me again :)

Why isn't this slideshow centered?

Link to test site
I have this css:
div#centeringwidgekits {
    width: 100% ;
  margin-left: auto ;
  margin-right: auto ;
  
}
       

Open in new window


Thanks!

Hi rowby,

The width is set to 100%, so there is no room for margins. If you change the width to 600px (this matches what the content's width is), you should see the slider center.

Hi Adrian,

Sounds good.  But will it work  in a responsive display if I declare 600px, for example?

However if I have no choice, that is what I'll do.  Fortunately it is a module so I can unpublish it for use on cell phones, for example.

You can set it to a max-width of 600px. CSS would look something like this:

div#centeringwidgekits {
    width: 100%;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    max-width: 600px;
}

Open in new window


Setting a max-width will allow it to be responsive since the width is still declared at 100%.
