I have modified fisubice to a fixed. I also have disabled the left and right blocks on forums. There is a problem when I try to center the forums to line it up with my header (which is centered), I modified left-center.txt like such
Code:
</td><td valign="top" align="center" width="100%">


Not only does are the forums centered, but everything within the forums is centered also - all titles, posts, everything.

Is there a way to center the forums without causing everything within them to be centered also?

if i'm correct it isnt needed at all?
Did you totaly took out left/right blocks..or did you told the theme to just not show blocks?
If step 1 you might get problems to have it centered.
If step 2....original theme already is centered, and it isnt needed.

Sorry,i missed that 1.
But even then , you forum basicly should show in the content area and left and right column still should load columns area.
What might also could bug you is that the forum itself alreadyhas blocks right disabled....if i'm correct.
So if i'm right and you keep your basic theme ( your fixed one for all the restof the site and let the forums also usethe same theme setting) then you only need to activate your right blocks for the forum.

Isn't that just normal behaviour?
Children inheret the properties of the parent, in this case the center alignment unless overruled.

Code:
</td><td valign="top" align="center" width="100%">


Is this the complete code btw?

Actually, as I said, I added the align="center" to see if it would cause the theme to center instead of being fixed left. It did center all pages of the theme, but it also centered all the content of each part of every page.

That behaviour you are noticing is one of the subtle things that changed from HTML to XHTML. RavenNuke is using XHTML.

there must be an unclosed td, center or div tag
try validating your site to see what's wrong

I installed a fresh copy of RN22001. I did not make it a fixed width, but only changed html/themes/fisubice/left_center.html from:
Code:
</td><td valign="top" width="100%">
to:
Code:
</td><td align="center" valign="top" width="100%">


This causes everything, everywhere to be centered - not just the site itself.

I just found out that this does NOT occur with Firefox, only with IE and Opera.

Any suggestions?

Like I said, this is because RavenNuke is using XHTML, and XHTML now propagates centering down to children (except on Firefox, which is broken right now). You need to use CSS or center a different way.

I found a solution. I don't understand specifically why this worked, but....
It might not be xhtml compliant, but it works so I will go with it unless/until a css solution is presented.

1. I set my fixed width.
2. Edited left_center.html to include < center >

Code:
</td><td valign="top" align="center" width="100%">


3. Edited tables.php by 'wrapping' the entire code with these to lines...

Code:
echo '<center>';


echo '</center>';


I have not experienced any problems with this so far, and it works with IE, Opera, and Firefox.

If anyone has some specific suggestions as to how to accomplish my goal without using these methods so as to keep the site xhtml compliant I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Doulos

I suggested using CSS or doing your centering "a different way". It sounds like you found that different way. Smile From what you described, it doesn't sound like you have broken XHMTL compatibility. You may want to check your theme with the online W3C validator (or not - it is scary how many themes out there were coded without compliance in mind).

floppy from clan-themes suggested I modify style.css as such:
Code:
body {font-family: Verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 10px;margin:0 auto;}


That did not work. I guess I'll have to stick to my solution. Thansk everyone for you help.
