Hey everyone! I'm new to this forum, but I'm glad to be a part of it now. I have learned so much. I'm in the beginning stages of coding, and I'm pretty sure I have enough knowledge to build my own website. The problem I'm having is editing a webpage I own on a site that is owned by a company. I don't know the rules here so I won't name the site. There is an editing section where I can add my own HTML (I can add my own buttons, links, forms, etc) and another section for CSS. There's a custom ID made for that called customIntro where i'd use that ID to put my coding for decorating my page. The page is basically fully customizable. The problem I am having is with the coding that is already on the site/page. Should I use the inspect tool and edit the divs on the site also or should I just edit the divs as ( display: none;) and go about my business editing my page? As a beginner I'm used to starting from scratch, but now I'm doing a task of editing code that is not mine. I'm not sure if I asked the question right, but if any info is needed to assist me, please let me know. It's kind of like how everyone used to edit myspace back in the day with coding in the bio/about me section. Thanks in advance !!
Attached below is default css on the page that I can edit. Basically what I want to do is add a background image that is scrollable, social media icon buttons, paypal form with by now buttons, and small things in that nature. I just don't know how to go about it when there's already code you can't get ride of. Thank you again.
@Bear Bibeault, thanks for the quick reply. I know you can't permanently edit something from the inspector tab. I use it to see minor edits I could make. What I was asking is, what's the best wsy to hide all of the default coding to customize the page my way? Thank you!!
