Centering Header Title

    How do I center my site title using a Mac? Additionally, I made my own header with my site title written in text over the picture and then removed the site title from the settings but this caused my website title to not appear at the top of my browser window above the address bar. I would like to insert my picture and then enter the site title in the settings section but I want to center the site title so it doesn’t cover the face of Ronaldo in my soccer site header.

    Add this to your child theme stylesheet or to your custom CSS.

    .header_title {text-align:center;}

    removed the site title from the settings but this caused my website title to not appear at the top of my browser window above the address bar

    I presume that you mean from “General Settings”, right? You can always control what appears in the title bar of a window by going to Graphene Options >> Display >> Miscellaneous Display Options.

    What you use to edit doesn’t make as much a different in how your site appears as which platform/browser configurations your readers use. The real difference is when you use other applications, such as a text editor (I like Tex-Edit) or an FTP client (I like Transmit).

    Good luck,

    Thanks for the quick replies. I know nothing about making web pages. I used the Graphene Theme primarily for the built in Twitter and Facebook buttons. How do you make those buttons appear with the official Facebook and Twitter logos like that?

    Thanks to your help, I’ve resolved the problem of the website name at the top of the window. Thanks for that as well as the info about centering the title.

    How do I center the tagline?

    How do I make my header image fit in the header box? I tried shrinking the size of the jpeg photo but I was still forced to crop the bottom of my header image. I thought if I shrunk the height and width it should fit. I was still only able to fit part of my image.

    What is a child theme stylesheet and why does it have that name?

    How to I change the font in my header and in other places?

    My posts all show a “by:” on the right hand portion of the post, but I didn’t see how to enter my name there. I just put “By: Colin Reese” in my post text box. So, I have a thing that says “by:” without my name after it.

    About the Facebook and Twitter buttons, a lot of the themes force you to cut and paste code from the facebook site into a text box instead of having the option of just entering your url’s in the Graphene Options section. I was wondering how the theme was designed to have the Facebook and Twitter links with the official logos nicely at the top of the page instead of having a like button on the side of the page with the site title, the site avatar, and a vertical box on the sidebar. Where in the CSS is the section that allows the Facebook and Twitter logo buttons to appear as neat boxes with the official Facebook and Twitter logos?

    You can insert social icons all over the place. You should read up on the use of action hooks within the theme. Check the “Advanced” tab in your Graphene options.

    You can use my video tutorial for reference here:
