I upgraded to the latest version of Encounters. It doesn’t automatically center the header photo in the showcase area.
So I followed your advice and edited the style.css file like you said and now my photo is centered in the showcase area. Now I would like to know how to get the padded colored border area to move in closer to the the photo. Is this possible at all? My photo is not nearly as wide as the default photo so that’s why I would like to bring in the border area to be closer to it.
