Solved: 6 Years, 6 Months, 1 Week ago
Hi, im making a few basic edits to my theme and can't get my container to be centered.
I'm fairly new to css and coding in general so sorry if its a real basic thing..

I have tried the code:
margin: 0 auto;
but to no avail, maybe its in the wrong place or section, please could someone help.

My body/container part of the stylesheet code:
body {
	background: #fff;
	background-image: url("/images/20130512_180856.jpg");
	background-attachment: fixed;
	background-size: cover;
	line-height: 1.4;
	margin: 0;
	overflow-y: scroll;
	
	color: #333;
	width: 76%;
	font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
	font-size: 13px;
}

a:link {
	color: #0072BC;
	text-decoration: none;
}

a:visited {
	color: #0072BC;
	text-decoration: none;
}

a:hover,
a:active {
	color: #0072BC;
	text-decoration: underline;
}

#container {
	width: 76%;
  	opacity: .9;
	border: 8px solid #000;
	text-align: left;
	line-height: 1.4;
	margin: 0 auto;
	min-width: 990px;
	
	font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
	font-size: 13px;
}

also, how would i go about adding a gap above and below the container?
