i cant center it, please help


Can you post an image on how it looks, it would be very helpful.

I think you can center it in html by the use of center tag

The html <center> element is deprecated and should be avoided. For presentational formatting, its best to use CSS properties instead.

One option to center the menu is to assign a width to the <ul> element with a left/right margin set to auto.

#sddm {   
width: 705px;
margin: 0 auto;
padding: 0;
z-index: 30

@Programmermates :D it works, thanks for the help :D

Glad this solved your issue.
