My articles disappear off the right of the screen. I'm using ja_purity. Do you know how to make article text wrap?

HELP

I cannot center a table in rhuk mulky way. It is in an article. I edit article using html. I have tried typing <CENTER> before <TABLE> with a </CENTER> after </TABLE> but the center tag disappears and the table (form) stays left aligned. My form is auto generated by my autoresponder (which is a seperate service not integrated with joomla.

This is the CODE:

<table style="border: 1px solid #000000;" border="0" cellspacing="40" bgcolor="#3b5999">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td style="text-align: left;"><strong><span style="color: #FFFFFF;">Where do I send your free reports on self esteem?</span></strong><br /><br /> <form style="text-align: left;" action="http://MYDNS.COM/FILEFOLDER/s.php" method="GET"> <strong><span style="color: #FFFFFF;">First Name:</span></strong><br /><br /> <input style="background-color: #ffffff;" maxlength="20" name="f" size="40" type="text" /><br /> <strong><span style="color: #FFFFFF;">Last Name:</span></strong><br /><br /> <input style="background-color: #ffffff;" maxlength="20" name="l" size="40" type="text" /> <br /><br /> <strong><span style="color: #FFFFFF;">Email address:</span></strong><br /> <input style="background-color: #ffffff;" maxlength="50" name="e" size="40" type="text" /> <input name="submit" src="../FILEFOLDER/images/go-button.gif" type="image" value="Submit" /><br /> <input name="r" type="hidden" value="1" /> <input name="a" type="hidden" value="sub" /> <input name="ref" type="hidden" value="none" /> <br /> <span style="color: #FFFFFF;"> <input checked="checked" name="h" type="RADIO" value="1" /> </span> <strong><span style="color: #FFFFFF;">I hate spam as much as you do.<br /> I will never give your email address to anyone, ever.</span></strong><br /> </form></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>



I read some posts about changing css, I tried that, but i have never changed a css file and was afraid. So I would need fairly specific instructions if I have to do that.

Thanks in advance.

erm to center a table you could just write:

<table align="center">
--stuff--
</table>

Adding this to my css file worked for me. Depending on your setup it may or may not work for you but for me it centered my article table, allows text to center to entire page, and keeps the print and email document button aligned to upper right corner. Also search your document for this existing code set to a different alignment and set it to center so that you don't end up with a conflict.

Code: Select all

/* Sets article alignment */
div.clearpad {float:center;padding:0 0px 15px 0px;}


Hope this helps.

Help! I just read through this posting to try and solve my aligning problems! Here is my home page! http://www.todaysenergystore.com/

I can't get the images and text to align in the center when I view it in the browser! I have them placed in a table to try and format them correctly but it the browser the show up as aligning to the left and with no cell padding or spacing!

Any ideas?

The simple <div align="center">text</div> as stated above did the trick for me. Many thanks
