first, i have completed the first project, the HTML/CSS tribute page, Faddah’s FCC project, the HTML/CSS Tribute page..
my problem is in the introductory video for the project — in the video describing the project, we’re told that the instructor had created the page using “practically no css,” save the pre-done classes from Bootstrap. We’re also told not to look at how he/she did in the code, but just do it on our own. i could not do it and achieve a similar page without using my own CSS in addition to Bootstrap classes. i just couldn’t.
first, the Bootstrap site, while complete and voluminous, is rather laberinth-like to even begin to navigate or find what you are seeking — like a simple class to give you some margin space below your element (i know now - .mb-1 or some other number for amount of rem space). also, certain Bootstrap classes would simply not work, no matter how i tried to apply them, like .mb-1 or py-3 (padding for both top and bottom in the y-axis), etc., i’d add them and they would show no effect in the element on the page.
i hope i won’t be penalized for that. But i feel these courses should show you a WHOLE lot more Bootstrap if they make that a requirement on the first project. that is what i wanted to say. if the video emphasis on using “Bootstrap only” is not a requirement for the project, then it should be stated as such in the video, or that Bootstrap should be de-emphasized as a requirement.
That is my feeling, at least, if you’re re-doing the instructional videos or coursework.
