[2] Finding an element to modify
« on: November 26, 2012, 04:30:27 am »
This guide will be using pictures and contain instructions that are specific to Google Chrome. Instructions will vary from browser to browser so use Google Chrome as you read and follow this guide.


1) Highlight an area you want to modify

2) Right click and click on Inspect Element
3) A box, known as the Developer Tools, will appear on the bottom of the screen with a line of code highlighted, move your cursor on the highlighted line of code
4) Highlighted areas on your screen will correspond to the line of code that your cursor is on, make sure it's the right area you'd like to modify
5) At the very bottom of the developer tools will have a highlighted box that will contain your element and extra info that will be necessary to modify it with CSS, in this case it is li.greeting

All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

You could be on any device, any web browser, as long as the web browser has a feature to show you the website's source code. I prefer being on a desktop using Google Chrome because using a mouse to point and click is much more faster and Google Chrome highlights the section of the page I put my mouse over.

This really worked. Thank you. The first time I tried skinning my board, it looked like an unholy mess. The second time I took your advice. I still have a ways to go, but I am getting the look I want. I wish there was a guide that explained each element and how to change it, but I'm slowly putting in eye-easy serifed fonts and simplifying the design. I'll have to create the boards soon and then I'll have to write...
