    cant center alignment on css/jquery menu

    hi people,

    first off, im not a specialist in website creation. i can however create a simple website very easily. but simple is not what we are after, is it?

    how i work is pretty simple, i download a template and suit it to my personal needs (im not selling websites or have any profit for it, its for my own professional activitities): i download a template i like and start customizing it to suit my needs.

    recently i found this cool looking css with jquery, in which i got stuck trying to center the drop down menu (i dont have the time necessary to really look in to it, concentrate on it).
    as far as i understand, a new jquery "ul" needs to added, but i dont have a clue where and how to do that.

    does any of you have an idea?

    i included the relevant code.

    thanks in advance for any helpful answer

    hello there,

    open your style.css and look for :

    ul.sdt_menu{
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    list-style: none;
    font-family:"Myriad Pro", "Trebuchet MS", sans-serif;
    font-size:14px;
    width:1020px;
    }

    Replace it with :

    Code:
    ul.sdt_menu{
    margin: auto;
    list-style: none;
    font-family:"Myriad Pro", "Trebuchet MS", sans-serif;
    font-size:14px;
    width:1020px;
    }
    Goodluck
