Centering royal slider makes it "jump"

Hi Dmitry,

Changing my pages to get a responsive design means letting go of control over every image size individually..

Here is my sample page:

I am using "margin: 0 auto" to centre the entire slider, but it first renders the page without the adjusted margins and then the content jumps as the margins adjust to centre it. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

The CSS I am using to centre the slide show is:

/* -- Non-mobile screens. */
@media only screen and (min-width: 501px) {
   /* -- Slider itself. */
   #main .royalSlider {
      margin: 0 auto;
      padding: 0px;
   /* -- Slider images. */
   #main .royalSlider img {
      padding: 0px;
      margin: 0px;
      border: none;
      -moz-box-shadow: none;
      -webkit-box-shadow: none;
      box-shadow: none;

And the JavaScript:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
      arrowsNav: true,
      arrowsNavAutoHide: false,
      controlNavigation: 'none',
      fadeinLoadedSlide: true,
      globalCaption: true,
      imageAlignCenter: true,
      imageScaleMode: "fit",
      keyboardNavEnabled: false,
      loop: true,
      loopRewind: false,
      numImagesToPreload: 4,
      slidesOrientation: 'horizontal',
      autoPlay: {
         // autoplay options go gere
         enabled: true,
         pauseOnHover: true,
         delay: 15000
        deeplinking: {
            enabled: true,
            prefix: 'image-'
      video: {
         // video options go gere
         autoHideBlocks: true,
         autoHideArrows: false

    You have an inline container with no width defined, so area of your post content equals to the widest element, and not to the width of window. Disable the Javascript on the page and reload it, you'll see that it's not centered there.

    Ok, I will have a look at that, thank you.

    I know this isn't specific to Royal Slider, but in general does the width of the div (the slider's parent container) need to have a specific pixel width or can it be percentage or *? (Trying to get the responsive idea straight in my head.) Can Royal Slider (or any dynamic content of course) be responsive and centered and not 100%?

    Sure, it can be anything. Check examples of layouts from popular css frameworks, like
