I started playing Magic the Gathering when I got to college. Two of my three roommates played, and the first time we met was when I barged in on one of their commander games. They lent me a deck and made me feel welcome, I came in second out of a group six and felt pretty good. I told them I wanted my own deck and just like that we were at Wal-Mart buying a pre-con commander deck. Later that week they introduced me to Tapped Out and told me I should build a deck all my own. This was the moment that I learned that I loved Magic. I had never seen a strategy game with so much variety. I thought the fact that there were more than 15,000 different cards could only be a lie, and to think I had to build a deck by choosing 100 of them that worked together. I couldn't wrap my head around the immensity that was this game. But here I am a year later, just now branching out of formats that aren't commander. Commander is by far my favorite format, as I feel it produces the most challenge for deck building especially with each play group being majorly different. I see myself more as a deck builder than a player, but only because I'm often too busy to play.

Hey, you're using a Google Doc with your CSS. You need the CSS to be in a CSS file to access it with HTML.

  • Copy all the CSS you have in your Google Doc.
  • Open Notepad and paste the CSS.
  • Save the Notepad file to your desktop as style.css.
  • Upload the style.css file to your host.

For your host, I think Google shut down hosting from Google Drive for websites thus you will not be able to link to a CSS file with HTML. I switched to Dropbox when this happened. That's my advice is make a Dropbox account at Dropbox.com. After you do that follow these steps:

  • In Dropbox make a new folder called Css using the "New Folder" option on the right.
  • Upload your style.css file to the folder using the "Upload File" option on the right.
  • Create a share link to your styles.css file by hovering over the file and then clicking on the Share button.
  • At the bottom of Share click on "create a link".
  • Click on "copy link".

The link is not the address you use to link to your CSS file in HTML you have to change the first part of it by replacing the www with dl.

Replace

https://www.dropbox.com

With

https://dl.dropbox.com

The rest of the Dropbox address is good and that's the address you will use in HTML to link to your CSS. Give this a try and when you can successfully link to your CSS file then lets see if you still have problems targeting elements with CSS.

multimedia Thank's for the reply. I thought about linking those earlier, but I wasn't sure if you were willing to help.

This is how I'm accessing my stylesheet:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1Aiovf2oGrcMYejYEY10PRbQtaGlzEUP7JpCnCvoFoD8">

This is a link to my style sheet: Style Sheet

This is the deck I'm using to test around with CSS: Panel Tests 2

Once I learn how to use it, I intend to try it out on some other decks.

Thanks for taking a look at it.

Hey, I'll help you out with CSS; however, when trying to find errors in coding I need to see the coding :)

Please link me to the code you're using that's not working or just link me to the deck you're trying to style and I can find the code that way.

I'm sure you don't like clutter on your wall, so I'll keep this short. I'm looking for help with CSS. I'm reaching out to you because your Ezuri's Annihilation deck looks super cool.

My style sheet is giving me 404 errors, when I try to use it. I can edit it just fine, but I cannot link to it. Secondly I'm having difficulty targeting specific elements on my page. I'm trying to target them by ID but the ID has changed several times on me now, is there a consistent way to target my element?

My end goal is to use an image in the background of my accordions, in the same way an image is used on the accordions in User Page: Beginner.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
