    No, I apologize, but there’s no feature in the theme for this. You’d have to make your own CSS customizations for this. When working with unordered lists, it is sort of difficult to center these items without knowing the width of the containing <ul>. If you google around there are various approaches you can try, but nothing really out there that is simple and easy across all web browsers.

    For reference, here’s another theme where I center the list items: — Basically the approach I take is setting the list items to display as “inline-blocks” and then centering text within the wrapping list.

    But I think you when you center the menu, you’ll see it doesn’t look all that great with Alyeska. You may want to try using less items on the main menu so it’s more apparent the design is that they are floated left.


    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
