[Pro] Help with CSS Stylesheets?

Somehow I managed to screw up my stylesheets. The style are still there, but they’re just not working.

This probably has something to do with me changing the stylesheets to external stylesheets to try to accommodate some Perch code and then changing them back to internal stylesheets to change them back. I also renamed my stylesheets.

How can I fix this?

Okay, here’s a little more detail. The styles use to work at the item or table level. Now, they only seem to work at the text level. In fact, the styles are still there, but I can’t I can’t even turn them off at the item or text level. Weird.

Okay, I figured out the problem. I recently modified the “p” style and for whatever reason that totally screwed up every other applied style in my website.

Talk about being in a panic. What’s worse is that I haven’t backed my files up in a few days. Anyway, everything is right with the world now.

I would however like to know what the “p” tag created all of this havoc.

Sorry for your troubles, but I have nothing to diagnose.

While you are learning CSS, try to adopt an iterative approach – make a
single change, then publish, preview and evaluate before making another
change. That way if something breaks, you know it was the last thing you
did somehow, and you only have one move to undo and figure out.

Thanks Ernie, and you are of course right. I did manage to fix the problem, but I’m amazed at how much damage that p tag can do.

Remember, ALL tags define STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS. Like with a house, don’t do
anything too drastic with a tag style unless you want to see it all come
crashing down :wink:
