In Need Of Help with HTML

**turns on the pleading kitty eyes**

Hello, out there. Once again, I'm looking for someone to help with the coding in my journal, simply_beloved. For years, the journal was properly coded, and when links were clicked for chapters, they showed proper formatting. Then one day, out of the blue, every single chapter was centered. I checked and rechecked, making sure I had my opening and closing tags in the right place, but no matter what I did, the damned text remained centered.

At least for me it's showing up that way. I would appreciate any number of you guys checking in to see how the formatting appears to you. And some kind of explanation as to why it's all screwy for me.

And if someone is kind enough to be able to help me fix the situation, I would be most grateful. I am gearing up to work on this long, long, long overdue epic, and would love to have the proper showcase for it all ready to view.

I appreciate any and all assistance.

Hoping to hear from y'all in the near future. Thanks so much in advance.

It looks left-justified to me. But then I clicked on the cuts and they are centred. Have you tried (angle bracket) /center (close angle bracket) straight after the cut? As in [/center] but with < and > ? Make sure your posting page is in HTML view when you do it.

I don't think I friended that LJ - I'm always happy to be a beta for you, sweetie.

They look centered to me, too. It seems that on LJ, you only get centered when you put the actual html code in? Are you posting using HTML or Rich Text?

Hey there, sweetling. Thanks for taking the time to get back to me. I only use the HTML editor, wouldn't know what to do with Rich Text.

Send me your email if you'd like, and I'll send you a copy of the coding so you can see what I've done and where I could have fucked up.

Appreciate it, muchly.

It looks left-justified to me, both outside and inside of the cuts.

Thanks for checking. No matter what coding I put around the cut tag, it affected the text in the body, as well, so I just deleted the center tags. It wasn't something I wanted to do, but it all looks nice under the cut now.

Hi! Everything looks left-justified to me right now (Monday morning), but that could be because the of the style you're using, or because it's been fixed. The only issue I could think of for you to check without seeing the coding is whether you closed the center tag after the image, if you did try to center that.

Thanks for taking the time to check things out. For some reason, LJ is not allowing me to put any coding at all around the cut tag without affecting the body of the text, as well. So, I just deleted the center tags, and have to live with the link being left-justified.

Could be worse.
