(vent) i fucking hate the layout thing and im about to smash my head into a wall istg

So for some conext: I've been trying to figure out the spacehey layout thing for a while and so far, I am frustrated. 

No, susan, i don't know how css code fucking woks, i just wanna have a fun tony crynight themed page, is that hard to ask for???

I literally tried getting advice from ppl on spacehey, reddit, EVRYTHING, and all i fucking got was "its css, it's not hard" AND A BIG FUCKING PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT NOT EVERYONE KNOWS FUCKING CODE! WE'RE NOT ROCKET SCIENTISTS OKAY!

to the ppl that made Spacehey, if this does end up on your moderation system, please, for the sake of everyone's sanity, at least make a thing to where we can see what the layout would look like b4 we save our progress. I'm so close to having a meltdown over this istg

I think people are probably telling you CSS isn't hard because compared to full-fledged programming languages, it's very simple. I understand it's confusing when you're first learning, but if you want something custom-made you'll unfortunately have to either learn to do it yourself or pay someone to do it for you.

https://www.w3schools.com/css/ is a useful resource if you're looking to learn CSS. Links on the left sidebar for individual things.

Easiest way to get a preview would be to grab the HTML code from your profile, including the existing CSS (I'm sure there are browser extensions that'll let you do that; otherwise you can inspect element and copy/paste). Code editors like Brackets (https://brackets.io/) or Visual Studio Code (https://code.visualstudio.com/) will both allow you to have a live preview, so you don't have to save the file and reload each time. Brackets has this functionality built in, but you'll have to download an extension to have the same functionality in VSCode.

The last tip I can offer is to just google what you're trying to do; generally, you'll find someone on stackoverflow with the same issue and the solution will have been posted.

I get that you're frustrated and this might not be the response you were hoping for, but the truth is that the only real solutions are the ones I previously mentioned (doing it yourself or paying someone), or using premade layouts that might not fit 100% with what you're going for. I hope these tips can help you out nonetheless.
