Beginners

Of course, part of the problem is being able to identify what is what and then knowing enough about CSS to be able to write the correct ID or Class assignment." There is so much that can be done using CSS without having to touch any PHP or theme stuff whatsoever, just a CSS file.

CSS in Drupal

Target Skill Level:
