    Ok this one is so simple it is disgusting – for some reason I can use the property float: right; and the image will go to the right, float: left; will make it go to the left. all I want to do is center the thing – I tried float: middle; and float: center; – neither of these will put it in the center – ALL I WANT TO DO IS CENTER THE DARN IMAGE! should be really easy and I can’t figure out why it won’t work

    .image-attachment div.attachment img {
    padding-top: 50px;
    display: block;
    height: auto;
    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 100%;
    float: center;
    }

    please someone help me before i pull my hair out! THANKS!

  • Kindly make use of this css

    .image-attachment div.attachment img{
    padding-top: 50px;
    display: block;
    height: auto;
    margin 0 auto;
    }

    There float property donesnt have a center value.

    Don’t know why you are making use of max-width: 100;

    But the above css code should work.

    it’s still aligned to the left – which part of this css is telling it to be centered?

    I also found this with firebug:
    .entry-content img, .comment-content img, .widget img {
    float: left;
    max-width: 100%;
    }

    when I change it to float: middle; in firebug it will center the image – but then the line disappears – I tried to add that line to my css with float: middle; and it does nothing – I figured there was a reason it was disappearing

    I don’t understand why there isn’t just some line you can add to center it…

    Kindly add this to your css file

    .entry-content img, .comment-content img, .widget img {
    float: none;
    }

    The reason why it wasn’t working is that the float property don’t have a middle value it is either left, right or none.

    But with the above code it will be fixed.

    There is no such things as “float: center;” The “margin: 0 auto;” is what automatically centers block level elements.

    See:

    I wonder why it isn’t working…is it inheriting something from a higher level or something?

    Are you using the built in alignment setting when you insert the image – see:

    no – I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to select an alignment every time I put a post in – I just want it to always show images on attachment pages in the center…let me try another post to see what happens if I select nothing – I don’t think I chose an alignment on that one

    Does your theme include an image.php template file?

    That’s because you’ve added styles to your child theme that are messing up the default CSS – this in particular:

    .entry-content img, .comment-content img, .widget img {
        float: left;
        max-width: 100%;
    }

    HAH! not sure why that was there to be honest with you – that fixed it – THANK YOU!

    What are you using to show them? A plugin or ?
