Changing featured post on front page

    I’m currently using the structure theme. I’m looking to change the featured post section on the front page. I was looking to make it move from the left aligned where it’s currently at to something more to the middle of the page. I was also hoping to see if it was possible to make it flip through the post. Is any of this possible? I pretty much just have basic knowledge of CSS (i.e. <b>,</b>)

    Thank you for any help that you can give me!

    The blog I need help with is thepopprojectwithstevenkaufman.com.

    Hi, there,

    I was looking to make it move from the left aligned where it’s currently at to something more to the middle of the page.

    Currently I’m seeing the image in your featured post more to the center. The image you are using though is narrower at 445px than the recommended minimum width of 620px so the image is centered in the div the image is displayed in, giving the illusion that it is more centered.

    We can narrow the #homepagetop div, but that div has the top and bottom borderlines, so they will then be narrower than the header and the content below and it will look a little odd.

    To make changes to the CSS, you would need to purchase the Custom Design upgrade. You can do so by going into the dashboard of your site and to Store > Store.

    You can try out and preview custom CSS before you buy as explained here. You can give the following CSS a try.

    #homepagetop .featuredimage {
        max-width: 445px;
        padding-left: 87px;
    }
    #homepagetop .homewidgets {
        padding-right: 87px;
    }
    #homepagetop .featuredimage img {
        max-width: 100%;
        height: auto;
    }

    I was also hoping to see if it was possible to make it flip through the post. Is any of this possible?

    Do you mean like a post slider, which would cycle through a number of posts? If so, that is not possible with CSS. CSS is a styling document used by the browsers to position and style the elements of a web page and can’t be used to add functionality that is not there already. We currently have over 70 themes that have post sliders that you can see by clicking here.
