XF 1.5 Forum center issue

    Just installed the latest version. I set the max_width to 1100. But how do i center the forum? I used Google and found several threads but oddly none of them answered my question. Please don't say set the max_width to whatever and the other options to blank, as i read in other threads. Because that moves the forum to the left.

    Thank you!

    This is what I use in style properties > general > page width controller additional CSS

    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 1200px;

    Thanks but as already mentioned above that moves the forum to the left.

    Edit: I got it centered but the max width does not what i want it to do. I don't want the forum to stretch all the way to the edges. I want it centered with a max width. Any idea?

    Well, you didn't already mention that, you said you left it blank.

    The settings I mention will make a maximum width and centre the forum, I just tested it on a default style and it works perfectly. Maybe you have something in EXTRA.CSS that is overiding it

    You mention max_width, that is incorrect - see what I have suggested, it is max-width (hyphen not underscore)

    Also with the default setting remove the underscore from _margin

    This does work!

    Thanks for your reply. I still couldn't fix the issue, what you mentioned simply did nothing. But it doesn't matter anymore as i bought a theme that changed it automatically to what i wanted.
