[Express] Newsletter Box

On my home page www.lmit.co.za my orange box where you can subscribe to my newsletter seems to be aligned left, it has to be centre. i’ve tried everything to no avail, group, alignment etc… I can’t seem to make the box smaller either.

Any suggestions?

Also, graphics seem soft as well…

In the OP it says: “where you can subscribe to my newsletter seems to be aligned left, it has to be centre” the text box and email field. It all should be aligned in the centre. The box is to big as well, but can’t change it’s dimensions.

Do you mean that the text

“Subscribe to our free monthly newsletter for interesting facts about the internet, photography and our specials!”

Should be aligned centre to the orange box.

Or that the orange box should be aligned centre to the content above or that the entries in the form should be aligned centre to the orange box?

I mean the content within the orange box is all sitting on the left.
“eMail”
“Text Field”
“Submit Query”
is all alligned to the left inside the box, they should be in the centre and I can’t seem to centre them, no matter what I do.

Double click inside the table cell(s) that contain these fields and button and use the text align setting in the inspector to centre align.

This assumes that these table cells are the full width of the table.

Something else I noticed - you seem to have a transparent .png set as a background to these cells. You shouldn’t need anything like that as its height of 28px is causing the table to be taller than you need.

Also you can set the table to “height can shrink” in the inspector.

Sorry - I am going on a bit about this

If you construct your form in a table - like here http://www.deltadesign.co/form3.html

It will be easier to get what you want.

I have left a border on the table/cells so you can see its construction better. So a single column, 3 row table with the text, field and Submit button all inserted and aligned centre.

Personally I prefer a 2 column layout such as http://www.deltadesign.co/formtest.html
