I need some help with CSS

I'm trying to center the menu (marked with red) to the header, but it's not working.

Could someone who knows CSS better, take a look at the code.

I don't know much anythign (compared to Zimmer and liq) about CSS but you have #menu float set to left. Change the position to center maybe?

This topic reminds me of how hilarious it is to join the #CSS channel on Gamesurge and start talking about n00bs and headshots.

Well, first of all, why does your menu contain divs and all that shiz?

It should be like so:

Code:

<ul id="menu">
<li><a href="index.php">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="blah">Blog</a></li>
<li><a href="blah">Images</a></li>
<li><a href="blah">Videos</a></li>
<ul>
And then the css should be something like

Code:

#menu {
height:37px;
list-style: none;
margin:0 auto;
padding:0 0 0 10px;
width:900px;
}
#menu li {
display:inline;
}
#menu a {
color:#FFFFFF;
display:block;
float:left;
font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size:14px;
font-weight:bold;
height:18px;
border-right: 1px solid;
line-height:18px;
padding:8px;
text-decoration:none;
}
#menu a:hover {
color:#E4B100;
}
Note, that I just cut this from one of my previous sites and it's not tailored to your exact menu. But you should know what to do from here.

Also, to align it in the center, as I am assuming you are using a fixed width site, then just do this:

margin-left: 300px;

For #menu

That should put it close to the center, and you can perfect however much you like. It's rough, but it does the trick and should work anywhere.

Hope that helps. Give me a shout if it doesn't. I haven't actively tested it nor do I have the time right now, but I am sure you can

Also, next time you ask for help with templating and CSS, make sure you give us the source code from the BROWSER, not from your text editor. I need to see how it is rendered online, I don't want to see the php stuff, it also saves time and is much easier to take a look at.

'Cos I'm a noob and the divs have background images that align to bottom when I hover over it.
Like this one:
https://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k207/tupla_s/menu_home.png

I tried your way but the text is still aligned to left and without the images.

Lol, yeah. I added a IE fix to make everything centered and it broke in firefox so i added a fix for firefox too



EDIT: Yay, fixed it. removed float:left from #header and it's working
EDIT2: No I didn't
EDIT: Now I did not sure if I did it correctly though, but it works. Changed width to total of the stuff inside.

There's always "margin:0 auto" to center stuff. But you need a set width for that to work.
