    Sinking feeling about this one…

    Is there any way to automatically center an absolutely positioned div of dynamic width on the page? Any way at all?


    you mean a div that is positioned at the center? :?

    body, html{
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    width: 75%;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;

    something like this?


    I’m not particularly sure why you’d want to do it (relative position not viable?), but looks like some people have had success with this one: … ition-div/


    Thanks guys, both of those would work but both solutions require a fixed width to be applied to the centered div. In my case, I’m removing an image from a WP post and positioning it to the center of the top of the screen. To achieve this, I have to use absolute positioning, or the text in the post will leave a large gap to accommodate where it would have gone by default. What I’m aiming for is a way to do this for any size of image, automatically. To be honest I don’t think I can, but someone might know a way…
