My web pages in browser are shown to be on the left hand side of the page.
Can I centralise these pages with one click, or by cut and pasting a script
in the html page source file?

Thanks in advance.

Your problem will depend on which version of Publisher you created your
site.

This works only for websites created with Publisher 2000 & 2002.

Each of your html files requires adding the <center> code after the existing
<head> code.

You can go into each html file and do it manually or get the free
ReplaceInfiles program
and make it an easy chore.


"ReplaceInFiles" can be downloaded from:

<http://www.emurasoft.com/index.htm>

The four boxes require the following information:

Find: <head>
Replace with: <head> <center>
File Types: *.html
In Folder:
(use the button to go to the folder where the html files are located on your
drive)

The bottom four boxes can be left blank.

Note: Once the boxes are filled out and the "Replace all" is selected, the
entries are retained for the next time you use the program.

program some time ago; 'Sorry I forgot the individual's name. (Another
unsung hero).

Thanks Don,

I created my site using Microsoft Publisher 2007.
I guess there isn't a solution to the latest version yet?

P.s. Spent some of my honeymoon in Vancouver, beautiful part of the world!

Having been there, it sounds like you spent your honeymoon in Vancouver, BC.

I'm in Vancouver, WA; both cities founded by Capt Vancouver, the explorer.

you need to go into the website page setup and chose 'standard' and not narrow. That will center your website

Thanks in advance.


Choosing Standard or Narrow didn't work for me, but you'll be in the right vicinity.

Try this and see what happens. This is using Publisher 2003, but it might work in other versions (as a precaution, before trying this, rename your web layout file so your current version remains intact):

1- Click File, then Page Setup.

2- Under Layout, select Custom.

3- In the Width box, enter a horizontal measurement that is wider than your current setting. (This is trial and error; I changed my width from 8 inches to 10 inches.)

4- Now group the design elements in your web page and move them to the right (see next steps), so that the right edge of the layout touches the right edge of the enlarged white work area (in my case, it’s the 10-inch mark).

5- To group, hold down the Shift key, click the elements, then click Arrange, then Group. (Do just a few elements to test the centeredness in Steps 6-8, then do the rest of the layout/pages.)

6- To move a group, hover your cursor over the boundary of a group until you see the omnidirectional arrow symbol. Click and drag the group until the right boundary touches the right edge.

7- Now ungroup the elements so the layout can be seen on the web. To ungroup, click anywhere in the group, then click Arrange and select Ungroup.

8- Check the result by clicking File, then Web Page Preview. Adjust the page width if needed, move the elements again, then try viewing again.

This is kind of tedious, but it works. Here's my now-centered website: www.cumberlandumcflorence.org.

Hope this helps.
