Hey! To help you get your questions answered quickly, I created this new mini-post series all about Squarespace and Biz tips. Blogs in the mini-series will be shorter and sometimes related to a Freebie to help you get some answers to your questions.
Today, let’s talk about other CSS Tips. As mentioned in my Blog, CODE SNIPPETS & PLUGINS and CUSTOM CSS PART 3, CSS stands for “Cascading Style Sheets,” these codes and snippets give the opportunity to play with a page layout, adjust colors and fonts, add effects to images, etc.
Also, before giving you some tips from outstanding CSS experts (because we are not CSS experts and we needed help to customize our website), remember that if you’re a designer building sites for your clients, you may be tempted to add bits of code to make your client’s demands come true.
Still, it’s not a good idea… imagine if your client needs to make changes? You may have to offer your services on retainer to keep those sites looking how they should… and your client won’t be happy!
Here are some tips we used to customize our website:
