hi, can anyone help me with this? its been driving me mad for days now. I just can not figure out how to move the top backround so its in the centre, in line with the main part of the website.
I basically just want to move it to the right. It cant be that difficult surely?
Im using the Food Skin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please see the image and you will know what i mean.

Finally managed to work it out.

for anyone that may want to know.
I went into the template editor, opened up styles.css and changed this

/* Styles for the fixed width layout */
.helper-container {
width: 963px;
padding: 0 0px;
background: url(images/food_bg.jpg) no-repeat 0 0px;
margin: 0 auto;

The padding was 0 36px so i changed it to 0 0px

Download Firebug from getfirebug.com, once installed in your browser all you have to do is click on an element and it will tell you the exact CSS that is controlling it. An absolute ncessary free tool when modifying cs-cart templates.
