  • Resolved savedave


    Hi everyone

    Thanks so much to everyone for helping with this.

    I would like to center the page title on some of my pages. I have read various forum posts offering CSS for the style sheet to center all titles, but I really only want to center titles on a few specific pages.

    Is this at all possible? Is there a text editor for titles the same way as there is for content – or a place where I could enter a tag on the title?

    As an example, I would like to center the word commercials here:

    But I do not want to center the words Get In Touch here:

    Is this possible?

    thanks kindly

    – View your webpage.
    – Right click where applicable.
    – Select ‘View source’.

    – Look for the <body> element.
    – Look at its classes.

    You should be able to find a class that uniquely identifies particular pages.

    Then you can use those classes to apply styles to particular pages.

    Thanks for your reply.

    On chrome I did ‘inspect element’ but it just tells me:
    <h1 class="entry-title">Commercials & Brand Films</h1>

    If I understand correctly, the class is “entry-title” and it’s not unique to this page. Changing that would, I believe, change all page titles, not just this one.

    Is that correct?


    You need to find the page-specific class which is in the body tag – for example on that page:

    <body class="page page-id-8 page-child parent-pageid-6 page-template-default custom-background single-author singular two-column right-sidebar">

    So then you can use that in the CSS:

    .page-id-8 h1.entry-title {
       text-align: center;

    Oh I see. that is AMAZING! I didnt really understand how to use the inspect element function – still dont really but this is great.

    WPyogi if you come to London I owe you a massive beer for your continued help!


    And thank you Andrew too! A pot of earl grey to you.

    This was really helpful thanks. Can you tell me if there is an easier way than to list each page separately?

    Say in the same css class statement, having a list of page IDs?

    Sorry I’m new to CSS.

    Spoke too soon. I found this over at Stack Overflow.

    Here is what I used:

    /* Custom Page h1 Styling by ID */
    .page-id-50 h1.entry-title, .page-id-51 h1.entry-title {
      text-align: center;

    I only listed two in this example but I assume there is no limit.
