    The theme I’m using right now is Tarski. What I’m trying to do is to have text centred, in the footer at the bottom of the page. I’ve tried using the text widget, and html, but it doesn’t seem to be achieving the desired result.

    Unless you have the CSS upgrade, you can’t edit the footer at all. It’s part of the template, and we can’t edit our templates here because we share the backbone of the blogs and a change by one person would change it for everyone on that template.

    You can align things in text widgets by using the appropriate HTML code, but the only way to adapt a footer like that is to know CSS and buy the upgrade.

    Hmm, I see.

    I seem to have been able to centre the text within the margins of the sidebar, yet I can’t seem to get it to be centred (horizontally) within the whole page. A little strange.

    To center text or images in a widget, the code is

    <div align=”center”>TEXT OR IMAGE</div>

    lephemer,
    None of the themes allow you to move things like this. As noted above, you would need to modify the theme to achieve this – meaning you would need to buy the custom CSS upgrade, learn CSS (the hard bit) and then modify the theme.
    Just FYI – Tarski (which I also use) has one thing that bugged the heck out of me – the position of the comments and the comments input box. If you do buy the CSS upgrade (which I have) I would suggest adding the following in to correct this:

    #comments,#respond {
    width:500px;
    float:right;
    clear:none;
    }

    The USD10 for the upgrade was worth it just for that.

    Ah okay then. I’ve just decided to leave it blank, it’s fine like that.

    Thanks everyone for your help!
