How to Center the Tagline in Arras Theme in WordPress

This article will show you how to center the tagline in the Arras them in WordPress.  I searched the web and let me tell ya, there are a lot of complex ways to try and get this to work and I use the term try, because so many people couldn’t get it right.  I even searched on Arras’s own forums and nothing.  Well, there is now because I posted the solution for others.

You see, this started when I thought, “hmm, my logo looks a little small.”  So, I made a bigger logo, great, but then the little tagline of   “Giving You a Wealth of Information to Succeed” was lined up on the left side.  Okay, that just looked wrong.  So, instead of writing great new content I starting searching for the answer and some of them were quite complicated and still didn’t work or maybe I just couldn’t figure out their directions.

Anyway, I finally just gave up and said, “I will just try and figure it out myself” and what you know, I did!  So, without further ado here is the solution:

In your wp-admin, basically your admin WordPress page

Go to Appearance select Editor

Next find header.php and just add <center> and then </center> at the end:

Here is the code where I added it:

div id=”header”>

<div id=”branding” class=”clearfix”>

<div class=”logo”>

<?php if ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) : ?>

<h1 class=”blog-name”><a href=”<?php bloginfo(‘url’); ?>”><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></a></h1>

<center><h2 class=”blog-description”><?php bloginfo(‘description’); ?></h2></center>

So, that was pretty easy, huh, once ya know where to look.

Have a wonderful day,
