    Hello

    I have tried all the solutions proposed on various themes but they just don't work for Twenty Twelve. I would love if someone knows of a a plugin for this as I am not a programmer. I don't understand why this option doesn't come as a default.

    Many thanks,

    Skurf

    What have you tried? There are custom CSS plug-ins -- but you still have to know what CSS code to change. Try using Firebug to help you figure that out. Or post a link to your site.

    Before making any changes, though, you need to either create a child theme or use a custom CSS option or plug-in. Be sure you do not make any change to the default theme.

    Hello, the website is http://www.chelseastyling.com

    I've tried to add a few codes in the style CSS from what I could find on other forums but nothing seems to work on twenty twelve

    Thanks,
    Skurf

    Do not edit the Twenty Twelve theme. It is will be the default theme in WordPress 3.5 and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    That's strange -- as there is not a Child Theme active on your site...did you activate it (i.e. change to the child theme)?

    Hello, I hadn't activated it, but now that I've activated the child theme, my website looks completely different. All the menu is spread out as a list instead of being displayed as a menu. I've tried to import just style.css and editor-style.css but it all does the same thing,

    Please help,
    Julien

    ok I made it work but will be using Twenty Eleven now as the menus in 2012 come out really bad on mobile phones as people have commented on other posts. Also adding

    #site-title, #site-description {
    margin: 0 auto; text-align: center;
    }

    was not working on 2012 but works on 2011...

    Thanks

    Hello. This is my first post. Very new to WordPress but have been able to do a lot with just googling. But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to center my site title and the text right underneath it. I have created a child theme. My site is caminosexpress.com Would really appreciate your help as I've been trying to figure this out for hours! Thanks.
