I'm fairly new to coding and creating templates. I have added a template (and navigation) but am still having problems with some of my css not taking. First and foremost, I am wondering why my navigation bar and overall webpage won't center? I created this template in Dreamweaver, and tested it on multiple browsers and it worked. Is something in Sitefinity overriding my template? I have version 9.1.
Thanks so much! You would be surprised at the things some folks have missed. I have fixed a similar problem on what I am supporting, only it was more difficult to track down because the original developer used a LOT of copy and paste. I would change something and it would not show up in the results because the same style was repeated below multiple times (sometimes in the same file and sometimes a different file or both) and was superseding my changes. I am carefully cleaning it up, but in the mean time I do a global search now for every CSS class I touch.
Good luck with your new endeavors. I would recommend you check out Pluralsight for some training to get you started. They are inexpensive and the videos are pretty good. If you have money to burn, then I would also check out Falafel. They developed the videos I am talking about and have live training. I have used and recommend both.
Finally, if I am not in a hurry, I post here (I have a question from yesterday that no one has even looked at). If I need help quickly, I will often post a question on Stack Overflow as they have a lot of traffic. I have seen people post in both places. There is also the ticketing system, but I have a hard time using that outside of what I perceive to be Sitefinity problems/bugs.
As I said I'm fairly new to this, so I don't think others would miss this step. Basically, when setting up the Navigation (for example) I forgot to add the class.
So navMenu into my Navigation bar widget. That is fixed.
Some of it still isn't taking, but I believe that is a deeper issue for someone who's new to code, like me. It will probably involve more training, instead of self-teaching.
Thanks, Brian. I've been recommended Pluralsight, but am currently looking into going back to school for web design. It does seem to be a useful tool where I can hopefully invest some time.
I generally don't know where to post. I did submit a ticket once I realized this post might take awhile to be answered. I just hate to ticket every code error, since I'm so new. I do agree that some issues are more Sitefinity bugs. And I am used to Sitefinity 8.2, not 9.1.
Thanks again for the information!
