    Hi all, I am interested in purchasing the credits to edit my css for my blog. However, I thought it would be as easy as copying and pasting a new css code. I tried it, previewed it, and it is NOT right. I have tried to read some tutorials on how to do this the correct way, but I don’t understand it at all.

    Can someone please help me with this? Seriously – you’re going to have to explain it to me like I’m a child! LOL

    Thanks :)

    I think you don’t want to buy the upgrade, then. You are on your own; there are very few people in the forums who know CSS well enough to explain it, and it takes a lot of time. If you do a search of the forums and FAQs you’ll find many links to beginner’s resources on CSS. Do NOT buy the upgrade until you are comfortable with CSS, though. There is not enough help around here to make it worthwhile for absolute beginners.

    Well, that’s disappointing that the support isn’t there for helping beginners like me. Thank you for your honest reply, I do appreciate that. It would have been horribly frustrating to buy the credits and then not be able to do anything with it.
    Thanks again!

    for starters, what css code are you trying to copy/paste?
    a big thing to check is whether you’re supposed to “start from scratch and just use this”, or “add this to my existing stylesheet”.

    and yes, as rain says, you should be willing to troubleshoot things, otherwise it’s probably not worth upgrading.

    I just was about to copy and paste the BidVertiser html code to my blog. I failed too. I thought it is free. I will go to http://learningcss.info/ as suggested by writerhoward.

    Pasting html is a completely different ball game to CSS.
