Has anyone succesfully centered hornav?

Postby darthphunk » Wed Jul 01, 2009 10:11 pm

I've been searching through the forums, and I can't find a working solution. My template is set to full, (not right or left) and the module for hornav appears to be centered, but the menu choices are all justified left.

I tried this:

http://docs.joomla.org/JaPurity_how_to_center_hornav

but all this seemed to accomplish was cropping the mainnavwrap container... my menu options are still to the left. Is there a way to center my menu options? or automatically stretch all buttons across the whole menu?

Can someone help?

Attached are two pics. First pic is of the menus justified left, 2nd pic is how I one day dream my menu may appear.

Thanks!

I don't understand what's wrong in that procedure... It should works!!

Try to set this parameter with a lower number (see step 13 of the tutorial).

Code: Select all

    #ja-mainnavwrap {
    width: 960px; <--- EDIT THIS
    margin: 0;
    }

try with 400px and increase it if the menu buttons goes on a new line till you will find the true size (note that is width and not max-width).

I realize this is an old topic but I figured it would be better the bump this than create a new one.

Using "width" did nothing I when I tried it. Didn't change a thing. Using "max-width" did work, once I found the correct number of pixels. Not the way I intended it though. As you can see in the picture, I've centered the hornav menu but I hoped the whole thing would be the same color (well, not that color specifically but one problem at a time). Instead, everything outside of the buttons has now taken on the background color. How would I go about fixing that?

yeah i have a similar issue - it seems picky to ask seeing as its such a great template but if i could get the hornav to center the site would look a lot tidier. am i right in saying that the width of the average users browser page is 1000px? because i am using hornav to display an artist slideshow module - in the screenshot attached it is set at 980px wide, this leaves 10px at either side, now sure this looks ok and it does vertically align with the menu elements beneath but i would like to increase the width by 20px and have it running like a bar right across the top of the screen without those 10px grey borders either side. now when i increase the size of the module by 20px rather that expanding the module 10px both left and right it just expands 20px off to the right and looks lopsided. i have looked about in the settings and thought it might be to do with the 97% fluid setting but have tried a few things and can't seem to figure out how to fix it - if anyone knows how to hard align the hornav to the left of the screen that would be great.

- also on a seperate note i plan to put in the rather funky frontpage slideshow component/module at the top of the frontpage, i found a thread here about putting it in where breadcrumbs module is viewtopic.php?f=541&t=532385 which might be ok, and the developers have a nice thread on their forum on what code to insert to do it another way - http://forum.joomlaworks.gr/frontpage-s ... for-joomla !)/how-to-create-a-new-'module-position'-and-add-frontpage-slideshow-there!/ however, and this is going to sound really thick so please don't laugh, it involves editing the templatedetails.xml but whenever i click on it it pops up in a browser and i can't edit it - i know there must be a simple way to do this or a little app to edit it but i am a newb - could someone please clue me in?
