I think you need to add that tag yourself as a custom BBCode.

Use following for center alignment:

BB Usage:

Code: Select all

[center]{TEXT}[/center]



HTML Replace:

Code: Select all

<div align="center">{TEXT}</div>

You can find alot of usefull BBCode examples in the phpBB beta support forum.

But remember, the current beta (3.0.B4 that is) have a bug that disrupts BBCodes with paramaters.

Using the custom BB codes utility, add this:

BB-Code:

Code: Select all

[center]{TEXT}[/center]

Replace:

Code: Select all

<center>{TEXT}</center>


...and it's done! Wink

Or you could make an align tag if phpBB3's BBCode maker allows the BBCODE= deal.

Code: Select all

[align=$1]{TEXT}[/align]


Is in HTML:

Code: Select all

<div align="{$1}">{TEXT}</div>
Danopia: wats wrong with windows server?
Iyeru: Everything
Danopia: r u another stereotyper?
Iyeru: No, I'm not a stereotyper.
Iyeru: In fact, I don't think I can type in stereo.

just a small comment:
ttbomk, <center> was never standard, and does not appear in html specs. for sure it is not xhtml 1.0 compliant, although most (all?) browsers support it. not recommended.
<div align='left'|'center'|'right' > is standard, but it's deprecated, and also not recommended.

the recommended way to do alignment is with 'style', so:
<div style="text-align:left|center|right;"> ... </div>

personally, i use <p> rather than <div>, but i'm not sure which is better...

P tag will add an extra space on the top and bottom of the encapsulated text (DIV does not.) If you add the below CSS, P will act exactly like DIV (to a degree.)

Code: Select all

P { /* Force P-HTML Tag to act like Tables Do */
     margin:0px;
}

<center> is far better than div align whatnot because it's shorter and less prone to screwing up (typos).

besides, it works EVERYWHERE.

and besides, it IS valid HTML. it may have been depricated in 4.01, but it's still HTML. it's not valid XHTML 1.0 strict but *beep* it, it's HTML. so code reader, might wanna do some homework because you cannot say it was "never" valid.
