By complete default i have managed to rectify this using the <center> </center> element.
Now, I’m only starting on my HTML/CSS “journey” and am not claiming to be any expert in this area, but if my understanding is correct this element (center) should not be available in HTML 5. Given that WordPress is now at 4.? , I’d like to know how and why this feature is still available.
In theory i have achieved what I needed to do but it does’t seem the right solution.
