Support » Themes and Templates » Central Column…How?

  • ive been using wordpress for a year, and i’m coming to the point where i want to design my own themes. but ive come across a problem…i dont know how to create a central column (!!) with space at the sides, as opposed to a header etc that fills the whole width. If i change the width of everything, it just all pushes to the left hand side. what css tag do i need to use? I know this is probably really simple, but i can’t work it out from other central columned themes. thanks (my return button is broke, hence the big block of text:)

  • What you do is you have your central column right:

    <div id="central_column"></div>

    Inside of it, you’re banner:

    <div id="central_column">
      <div id="banner"><img src="http://" alt="" /></div>'
    Then in your CSS:

    #central_column {width: 800px; }
    #banner {margin: 0 auto; width: 600px (however big your banner is); }`

    What’s that going to do is put the img in your banner centered in your central column. This is a crude example, but will give you an idea. The margin: 0 auto is what auto centers the img.
