Text widget off centre in column

    I’ve got text widgets featuring clustrmap, live feeds and twitter follow me. I had a long trial and error with most of them, as many versions would simply not appear in the centre of the column but instead to one side or the other (they are OK now, although the twitter one is slightly off the mark). Why is that and is there a way to edit the position of the text widget icon within the column?


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


    Sorry, forgot to mention the blog: http://www.anythingpalmeiras.wordpress.com




    The correct URL for that blog is http://www.anythingpalmeiras.wordpress.com/ as no WordPress.com blog URLs ever contain “www”. I am using a Firefox 3.6.8 browser and I’m viewing the blog which is wearing the MistyLook theme. What I see is that all the widgets are now centered.

    It appears that the theme has been coded left align the contents in widgets and we cannot edit our themes or templates here at wordpress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    You may be able to change this by purchasing an annually renewable CSS editing upgrade or not. I don’t know as I have not tried. If you are considering purchasing the upgrade, you can go to Appearance > Edit CSS. There wordpress has provided a preview function where you can try before you buy.

    Please note that since there is no official Staff support for the CSS upgrade, and precious little Volunteer support, it’s not recommended that buy the upgrade unless you have at least moderate understanding of HTML and CSS because you must be prepared to do the work on your own.



    DANG! I made a mistake above by leaving out a word I meant to type:
    “The correct URL for that blog is NOT http://www.anythingpalmeiras.wordpress.com/ as no WordPress.com blog URLs ever contain “www”. ”



    The HTML code <p style="text-align: center;">anything</p> runs well in text widgets on Misty Look (but not in any theme). At least for images or text, for these external codes I don’t know.


    timethief and ludusnaturae, thanks for your input. Will try the align command (I assume I put it in the very beginning?).



    Ah… Nothing like a little trial and error (I’m new to HTML). Got it right now, works like a charm. Thanks, ludus!



    Yay! That’s great news.

    “runs well in text widgets on Misty Look (but not in any theme)” Yup! :)
