Blogger How To: Center Your Header

Sometimes all you want is a quick fix. You’ve uploaded your Blogger header on the Layout page but it’s aligned to the left. You want it centered horizontally over the content section of your blog instead. Here is how to easily do that!

1. In Blogger, go to Template > Customize

2. Click on the Advanced tab then scroll to the bottom of the second menu and choose Add CSS.

3. Copy and paste this code into the text box (click then press CTRL + C to copy, then CTRL + V to paste):

#header-inner {text-align:center !important;} #header-inner img {margin: 0 auto !important;}

That’s it! Done like dinner.

    it doesn’t seem to be working…i already had a code in there…how do I add it in the right area?

    • do you have a customized template? what is your blog URL?

  • This worked and it was so easy! Thanks! my header has been bugging me for ages


  • I am not sure what you mean because looking at your blog, the header is the same width as your content area and already justified…
