How to make "Your Answer" Message Box centered

All,

I have limited php and html knowledge. I have everything working OK now except for a few plug-ins. My only issue at this point is that the "New Topic" box is centered under the forum's topics. When you go to a topic/discussion forum, the "Your Answer" box is not tabled and is to the left of the screen, not centered under the discussion.

The same thing happens/shows when editing a message. I have tried in vain to find the problem for days, and also used Paul's suggestion utilizing Total Commander for finding the code to no avail. Where would I look to find the code to fix this? I have looked at directly at every template's html and can't seem to fix it. I have found the area and html

This isn't a big problem but it does bug me.

templates/main_post_form.html

where it opens the <td> before <textarea>, it should be

<td class="caption5" style="text-align:center">

something like this... the same for the

templates/main_topics.html
templates/tools_edit_post.html
templates/tools_edit_topic_title.html

Still no luck. I think I am missing some html in regards to the "Your Answer" box. I notice that here on this page the "Your Answer" box and associated form is bordered by a line. The entire form is in a box. Not so on my threads pages. The box is centered on the New topics" form under the forum...

Sorry, we're not providing free support on custom problems. Either you teach HTML yourself, either you pay us for solving the prob.

Just a hint: miniBB templates are built dynamically one by one. Posting area templates are separated from others. What you call "border" is actually defined in CSS, not HTML.

I think I found it. I opened the main_post_area.html file and re-saved it in Front page. It seems normal now.

Front page is the worst thing you may use for editing ;-) It produces an invalid HTML and add a lot of unuseful code. But if it works for you, it's ok.

I seem to have found that out the hard way. I used to use Notepad until html became more difficult. What program do you suggest for proper html editing?

We're HTML gurus and don't using visual editors. I know HTML by syntax completely and using Notepad2.

miniBB is not created by newbies ;-)

I see that! It is awesome! I just purchased the File Upload software. I hope I won't need help installing that.
