Previously we talked about the hours we spent on coding a part of his website…
Bumbleboss For me it took 5 hrs just to simply stlye it a bit and organize the HTML code and get familiar with xD Like the custom styling that can be simply done by just adding the ID
#brown-bg and it does the whole work.
Bob Why ID? Use a class. So you can use it more than once.
Bumbleboss Cuz it already had a class so I couldn’t. Wait wot?
Bob What the heck? You can use more than one class!
Bob That’s what classes are for haha!
Bumbleboss (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
class="class_1 class_2 class_9999"
<div class="some_class" id="black-bg">
Bob You can use IDs multiple times as well but they’re inteded to IDENTIFY a div not STYLE it. Classes are basically for styling and IDs for identifying. Classes use again, IDs use once. That’s CSS and HTML basics tho!
Bumbleboss A silent mouth I shall be on that one. Finds Bob telling everyone in #coding.
I just told the entire internet. If you already got a class, use an ID and if you also got that one, well… HTML has some serious issue I guess.
