Css Classes in Web Design

CSS Classes

When you are designing a website, it’s essential to be able to implement a consistent style across the entire website. This can be tough if you don’t know about or understand css classes. Css classes are great! you can apply a class to any div or element in a website, and it will take on the attributes that you specify in your stylesheet. Before classes, you’d have to create tons of div id’s if you want to create any type of variation to an element. This got old quickly, it was a pain, and if you wanted to go back and edit your stylesheet, that was an undertaking of its own. In the video below, I talk about Css classes, and how you can use css classes to apply certain styles across multiple elements, such as a div or a heading tag.

What do you think about CSS classes? They are extremely handy for creating a consistent layout. Css classes are huge time savers if you use them properly. You can apply specific styles across different types of elements, and they are much easier to keep up with than 20 div ids. You can name a class whatever you want, and you can control many different aspects of your site with a class. You can also apply multiple classes to an element, as you can see in the video. If both classes control the same attribute, but differently, the css class that comes later in your stylesheet will override the other class.
