Thread: NOF fails to center the body of the page

    Default NOF fails to center the body of the page

    I have run into this problem and it is failing to correct itself, I have a small page that I need the body centered. This isn't complicated, just click on the centered box. Yea so much for simplicity, its not working. I have opened NOF Essentials will admin rights, still publishes the site un-centered. I can fix this issue with IE when I click on compatibility, however, FireFox doesn't have such a thing and lets face it, it would work with all browsers. It was working fine until it did an update, so I uninstalled NOFE and tried to install it again, now setup runs in memory without doing anything. System is NOT infected.

    Anyone have any clues here?

    And please note this is the NoF 2013 forum. If you post your query into the NoF Essentials forum you're more likely to get a reply, as many of us do not have essentials installed and I haven't had NoF 7.5 (which is what is now called essentials) on my machines for almost a decade.

    Also, what OS are you running? As essentials is very old software you may find you run into compatibility promlems with win 7 or 8.

    Old problem, old solution

    Place a thin text box either side of you page (or in the master borders if present)
    Left hand side isn't always essential, right side alone often does the trick.

    Looking at the code of your page, I can see there is an empty STYLE declaration in the <head> section. In the Body section you have text align="center" declared. This is having some strange effects - in Chrome the background image remains centred in the browser while all the other objects remain anchored to the left. I think this is because modern browsers no longer support the text align STYLE declaration but I could be wrong about this.

    I don't have NoF 7.5 any longer on my system, but if you could try this: click in the Master Border and then if there's an HTML button in the properties palate, click it. In the beginning of the body section, before anything else, enter <div align="center"> and then at the bottom of the body section enter </div> this may kludge it for you.

    I know Essentials/7.5 doesn't generate <div>s but all modern browsers recognise them and this may be enough to solve your problem.
