cant align sidebar/ widget images to center in Bueno

  1. I learned how to center them (I think via Panos, thank you!) when I was trying out Comet and it worked fine (either hitting "align center" for the image widget, or pasting in the right code when the image is in a text box like my highest sidebar image.
    Now in bueno, the code is the same as it was in comet for the text widget, and the image widget still says its aligned to center, but both images are squeezed up to the left, crowding up to the post area.

    In the image widget it doesn't matter if I specify center, right, left or none---the image is still all the way on the left.
    Sorry to be posting so many questions...

    The blog I need help with is crickmore.wordpress.com.

  2. oops, forgot the site is http://crickmore.wordpress.com and I will go right now and make it temporarily public...

  3. Hi @ingridcc, if you have the CSS upgrade you can add this to the css to center that image,

    .textwidget p img {
    margin: 0 auto;
    }

  4. Thanks weschyrchel. I don't have CSS. But I don't see why this should need css---the widget itself has a box to tick for how you want the image to align--center right left or none...

  5. Apparently they never defined a center alignment (or any other alignment) for image widgets in the CSS, or somewhere along the line it got taken out for some reason. This is a bug.

    I'll tag this thread to have it moved to the themes forum so that hopefully one of the theme team will see it shortly and get the CSS straightened out.

  6. Actually it is already in the theme's forum, so just hang in there and hopefully someone will respond shortly.

  7. Thank you, tsp. It's happening in the text widget as well as the image widget...

  8. Text widgets can be fixed with a little HTML. The image widget cannot. Which text widget?

    By the way, I'm watching a couple of your tutorials right now.

  9. If you are talking of the "Thanks" image at the top, replace the image code you have in that text widget with the following.

    <p style="text-align: center;"><a target="_blank" href="http://crickmore.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/dscn2551thanksw.jpg"><img src="http://crickmore.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/dscn2551thanksws.jpg" class="aligncenter"></a></p>

    Note what I put into the opening "p" tag?

    style="text-align: center;"

  10. You could do the same with the image widget on the 10-loop double braid and put it into a text widget and surround it with "p" tags and put the "style" stuff into the opening p tag.

  11. Thanks so much tsp---and thanks for checking out my tutorials! (I'll be re-setting this blog back to private soon though, but all the tutorials are on my main blog "Loop Braiding")

    I assume the bug can be addressed without checking it out in this blog? Or should I leave it public for the time being? (it's a little embarrassing! since it's just a wierd slightly disfunctional copy of my main blog!)

  12. You are welcome.

    Staff can look at your site even if it is private, so there are no problems, and I was on your main blog.

    I'm going to be trying a 5-braid soon and have bookmarked your main site. It looks like fun, and something that could come in useful down the road. I need to look at a tutorial that shows how to make the button hole. The second one ends right when that part starts.

    Lesson to be learned: what's right in one theme isn't necessarily right in a different theme.

  14. @tsp---Sorry about that "cliffhanger" tutorial!
    The 3rd and 4th tute (in the same post) teach the buttonhole, and how to make the braid end up flat instead of square. Those 2 videos are a bit more organized/ efficient!

    Those first two tutes are more of slo-mo practice-along videos, and kind of rambling--not very well organized (that's my main problem in life!)

  15. Yeah, I found it last night. All I have in the house at the moment is some twine, but today I'll be trying a 5-braid square with twine and I'll probably toss in a couple of buttonholes and a section of 5-braid flat just for practice.

  16. Works great w twine as long as it's not too bulky or stiff (hard/scratchy on fingers). Dominic used coarse (but thin) hemp twine for his 5-loop braids---see this 'reader's gallery' post:

  17. Thanks for bringing this issue with Bueno to our attention. It should now be fixed. Please let us know if you run into anything else!

  18. HI... I'm having some issues with my website!!! Could someone help me please?
    This is how my sidebar is supposed to look:

    I did'nt change anything! And my sidebar lost it's FORMAT---
    I just checked my CSS Stylesheet Editor and it has no changes since October 20TH...

    Can you help me with this?

  19. I'm sorry, your site has way too many images and after waiting for 3 minutes for it to load on my wireless internet connection, I gave up.

    What I did see was that the sidebar looked like it does in your image to me on Safari 5.1.1.

    This might be an issue with some HTML in your posts, so what you might try is the following with the posts on your main page.

    Go to settings > writing and select "WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically" and then click "save changes."

    Now, starting with your latest post, open it in the editor, make one minor change such as adding and then deleting a space, and then click "update post." Check your blog and if it is back to normal, you are golden. If not, open the next post and do the same thing till it goes back to normal.

  20. Thank you Michiecat,tsp, panos, the image is centered.
    Thanks for all the help.I have learned a LOT from the answers to this and my previous question...Am really starting to like Bueno, think I will make the switch soon.

  21. You are welcome from me.

  22. Thanks man.
    Sorry for your bandwidth... I did solve the problem with some help from other website. But thanks anyway. The fact that your answers are so fast, makes me feel good about working with wordpress...
    Best regards from Panama---
