CSS Selector help

Hi All. I’m not a coder but I am trying to understand how CSS collectors work. Anyone know of a step-by-step tutorial of how to create the appropriate CSS selector. I’ve investigated some of the examples that are in this forum but mine don’t seem to work quite right. Will take any help I can get. Have some great ideas as to how to use them once I understand how to use them! Thanks! Peter

Hey Peter,

Generally the best way to learn this stuff is playing around with Chrome Dev Tools to understand how a website is structured. you can start off pretty easily by selecting classes from the website and move to more advanced selectors from there.

But perhaps start here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f91gmn-eTZ4

Airtable sends you to Mozilla, and this is actually a pretty decent resource, but is kind of reliant on a general familiarity with basic inspection dev tools.

I will hopefully have time soon to make a quick guide for this, but I hope this serves you well!

Thanks Andrew! Good stuff. I’m making headway. I’ll be submitting a recipe or two to the contest! I also found the W3Schools page t be a good reference with simple examples. https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_selectors.asp
