    Hello,
    I'm typing in html code

    • for bullets in "Button text 1" under "Extra Text" under "Presentation Page Columns" for the frontpage in the Mantra theme. But it doesn't show up in the webpage, and when I going back to edit mode, the code I typed have disappered. The same thing in happening when I use the Html code text-align: center; to centre an image. I would appreciate if someone could tell me if there is any solution to this problems.

    That's been asked a number of times - see if one of these threads answers it for you:

    It's explained pretty well here:

    You'll need to use a custom CSS plugin (jetpack is good) and then add this code there:

    #main ol, #main ul {
    	list-style: disc;
    }

    Thank you very much for your help. Can you aslo tell me how I can manage to centre a image, I tried with the Html code "text-align: center;", but that didn't work.

    Thanks. But if I want to be able to do this directly by Html code, what kind of code do I need to add to the Jetpack CCS editor to be able to do that?

    The reason to why I need this is that the link you posted shows how to add and ajust placement of images when you post them on pages, but this can't be done at the frontpage of the Mantra theme, because you then need to type HTML codes directly in special text fields. I'm new to WordPress but I can not understand why I don't find the frontpage under "Pages" in the menu, because it seems to complicate the customisations I want to do to the Frontpage.

    WordPress themes should have build in CSS for centering elements such as images -- in the Mantra style.css this code does that:

    #content .aligncenter,
    #content img.aligncenter {
    	clear: both;
    	display: block;
    	margin-left: auto;
    	margin-right: auto;
    }

    So all you need to do is add the class "aligncenter" to your images and they should be centered in the content section of your page.

    In the html it would be:

    <img class="aligncenter";>

    Just saw your last post so the above may not be relevant. But I'm not sure why you need to change anything on the front page -- aren't those images positioned correctly already?

    Can you post a link to your site? It would be easier to help that way.

    Maybe I do it wrong, but I'm going into my control panel, clicking on "Mantra settings", and then I click on "Presentatin page", and scroll down and click on "Extras" and then I'm edition "Bottom text 1" and typing the code <img class="aligncenter" src="http://www......jpg">
    But still the image is not centered, it's still on the left side.

    It looks like Mantra may only apply those styles to images in a #content div.

    Can you post a link to your site? It's really hard to sort out these kinds of things without seeing the site.

    Thank you for engaging in my problems. The webpage is http://www.seoc.no, the page is under development, that's why some of the pics are marked with the symbols from dreamstime, but all rights are bought for all the pictures from istockphoto and dreamstime;)

    I don't know if I totally have misunderstood WordPress, but for me it seems like that my "Presentation page" (First page) is not possible to find under the menu "All pages" and edit there. The other pages I have I can edit normally with Html codes by clicking on "text" (then all Html codes are showing), but with the "Presentation page" it seems that the only way for me to edit it, is to go to themes and click on Mantra settings, and use the setup to Mantra to edit the "Presentation page". Is this normal with all themes for WordPress, or this is just for some themes like the Mantra theme?

    How themes are set up and what options/settings they have is theme-specific. I've not used Mantra, so I can't really answer that in this case. Have you looked on the theme site here:

    They might have better information as to how to set up the front page. Looks like you can post questions in their dedicated forums as well.
