Centered text, justified text or offset from the left?

You can do both using css or change the php file. Without seeing the site it's difficult to say!

Hi again
if you can help me on this I will be very happy
this is probably the last bit of development I need to do
my site is www.victorybadges.com
to answer your question it would need to be centred text just like the product name
in both the category page eg http://victorybadges.com/en/shop/gift-ideas
and home page modules www.victorybadges.com

PS I used the comment in this forum "Product and category names under image, not on right" but did not work,I now think it does something else
hope you can help
happy for you to send a PM if its too complicated

Can you tell me which page exactly the problem is on?

I see that you have the text to the left on the home page and the code is this

.jshopping_padding .description {
text-align: left;
padding-bottom: 12px;
}

you need to change the text-align: left, to text-align: center;

You have the icespeed plugin enabled which means that the css is compressed. Can you switch this off so that I can tell you where to change?

Must be the time zones but you seem to post just as I look!

templates/it_theshop/html/mod_ice_carousel/assets/style.css line 194

.jshopping_padding .description {
text-align: left;
padding-bottom: 12px;
}


Change the 'left' to 'center'.

I have a minor suggestion - if you change the background of the template to something like 'snow' instead of the image file you are using the site looks a lot more friendly. Just a suggestion and you can reject it....... ;-)



/templates/it_theshop/css/typography.css line 14

body {
color: #555;
background: snow;
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
font-size: 75%;
line-height: 1.75em;

/components/com_jshopping/css/icetheme.css line 527

.jshop_list_product table.product .description {
text-align: left;
padding-bottom: 12px;
}

change the left again to center.

For body colour....

/templates/it_theshop/css/typography.css line 14

you have
body {
color: #555;
background: #E0E0E0 url(../images/bg.png) repeat;
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
font-size: 75%;
line-height: 1.75em;
}


change to

body {
color: #555;
background: #FFFAFA;
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
font-size: 75%;
line-height: 1.75em;
}


You don't have to use #FFFAFA - 'snow'.
You can use any colour or #code - http://www.somacon.com/p142.php




EDIT!

Do ensure that you are using akeeba backup for the site and taking regular backups. With so many products etc it would be hard work to redo the site without a backup!!

I am so sorry but the category page short description is still left aligned and the snow option ( I have actually changed it to the code does not seem to be working
what do you think is wrong ??

thank you for the backup option

EDIT
I have found out why these are not working
for the IceMegaMenu Module I am using default not icetheme as when I changed the setting temporarily it worked except some items were out of place, I will look at making these changes to the default theme

Clear browser cache.

Background is fine. Align is fine. You are using the icethem on joomshopping otherwise I would see other css files.

We haven't done anything with the megamenu?

Anyway. looks much better!

On all my clients shops a backup is done at least once a day. Takes 30 seconds and could save your life!! ;-)

Welcome.

Re too much white.

Go to any BIG site, especially shops and they are nearly all background white. Amazon, ebay, Bonds, etc.

White works, is clean, is bright and means your customers focus on the product not the background colour. Up to you but the grey dotted background doesn't work for me. I thought 'snow' added a bit of warmth to the site without being white. (You learn as a child in Switzerland not to eat yellow snow.)

But it is not my site!! Best of luck with it - and with over 2000 pages, all that work, seriously do those backups!! .-)
