    alignment positioning (from your wysiwyg toolbar) and sets margins accordingly.

  • Tested to work with Internet Explorer (versions 6 and 7), Safari and Firefox browsers
    equally well.

  1. Upload the full directory into your wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Copy and Paste the style sheet (css) code found in readme-style-code.css into your
    themes style sheet file (style.css) and upload it to its location.
  3. Activate it in the Plugin options.


How do I add the style sheet code (css)?

Open the readme-style-code.css in your text editor (notepad) and copy all the text
(css code) within this file. Then open your WordPress theme directory and you’ll see a
file name style.css, open this again using your text editor (notepad) then paste into
the file, make sure you pasted into a free spot within the style sheet.

Alternatively you can paste the css code within your WordPress administration area, under
‘Presentation’ -> ‘Theme’ -> ‘Theme Editor’ -> click ‘Stylesheet’ from the list and paste
into a free spot within the ‘Editing’ area, then click the ‘Update File’
