How do you align text to centre?

... Yes, I really am that stupid. :(

lol dammit I thought you were that annoying kid again. [center]text[/center] (replace the brackets with the usual, pointier ones) Unless you're using the RTE, in which case....stop using the RTE.

That might be how it works with the RTE too actually, just keep the brackets in that case.

 

e: tested and no it does not.

Someone else will have to explain the RTE option, idk.

I'll bite.

In RTE, you have to go to "Source" and enter the code.

< center > TEXT < /center >

Really? I use it all the time. There shouldn't be any spaces in the code, of course.

<center>TEXT</center>

Also, the word is "center," not "centre"... just in case THAT's the issue...

Nope. It's just not working >.<

Don't worry though. I'll just wait until I'm finished with everything else and then turn off RTE

The other thing to note is that anything you input in Source isn't permanent. So it's usually one of the last things I do. I'll write my page, make whatever edits I need, then go to Source and enter whatever special codes I want. Then I save the page and take a look at it in the story viewer.

If I make no further changes, the centering will stay there. If I noticed I misspelled something and go back into that page, any special formatting keyed as code in Source will disappear. I will have to reenter when I'm done.

And that's why RTE is evil. :p

Have you tried < vs, <?

Oh dang, I bet that's it.

I was wondering how Bill got the tags to even show up, never actually looked at the post in edit mode though.


Briar, make sure you're typing the < yourself and not just copy and pasting from Bill's post.

And I assume Avery knows this, but it might be worth mentioning:

The centered text will never appear in the RTE itself. So after applying the code and saving it, you have to use the story viewer to ensure the formatting is what you want it to be.
