Fixing image align issue in your WP theme

Are you looking for a reliable animation partner? - Sundstedt Animation

The current theme have had an issue with aligning images, they have appeared to the left when inserting them. The CSS is missing class for aligncenter.

This theme lacked the align functionality so center tag was used before. Center tags are deprecated, so you should avoid using them!

One fix to align an image is using text-align:center, which works:


That was done manually though, so not very good.

So we went ahead and added missing class for aligncenter at the bottom of our CSS:

.aligncenter {
display: block;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;

Then, we inserted the image again, using the WP Text Editor:


Not working either in our theme.

So, after no luck with aligncenter, we spent some time on the Google and simply added this at the bottom of the themes style.css:

p.pic {
text-align: center;
margin: 0 auto;

Then when you insert an image using p class=”pic” then it works.


We do need to manually add the p class=”pic” and /p but it’s pretty simple.

Now if anyone else had this problem with your WP theme, and like us are not very experienced in CSS, perhaps you will be helped by this post!
