    Hello,

    I like your module a lot, but I noticed that my slideshow is not centered in the module on the page. I’ve tried several different positions and they all show the slide show very close to the left hand edge of the “module box” on the webpage with a wide right hand margin.

    Is there a way to center the images so that the margin is the same on all sides?

      It can be done by using custom CSS code. Can you please provide a test url where we can review it? Then we can suggest you the exact solution.

    Is it possible to dispense with the navigation bar entirely? I would like to just shut off the navigation bar and display just the slides.

    Thanks

    Hello,
    I followed the above. I think I get it. However, how do I route the slideshow so that it appears on the actual “article page” so that it shows on the website?
    I chose the menu under which I want it on menu assignment but nothing appears on the website.
    Am I missing a step?

    Thanks for your patience but I am a newbie,

    Harold
