Crafting Custom CSS

Track this Session

“Custom CSS” is often touted as a feature for blogging and website services like WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, and Squarespace. But a blank code editor can be a daunting thing for non-coders. Where do you even begin?

We’re going to tackle that problem in this session. We’ll explore the fundamentals of HTML & CSS, the building blocks of the web. You’ll learn how to use your browser to inspect page code, and how to write basic CSS to customize the look and feel of your blog or website.
