Help/guidance needed!

Hello I really hope someone can help me.
I’ve been going through html and css, but I’m really struggling with layouts.
I know I’ll probably look back at this and think why did I find it so hard, but I just can’t get the hang of it.
I just can’t get my work to layout nicely and where I want it.
If anyone could give me a bit of guidance such as articles to read or videos to watch.
What am I suppose to focus on because I feel like I’m getting a bit all over the place with different subjects such as flex box , grid and the rest.
Any help will be greatly appreciated thank you .

Hi @sewardstonee4 !

Welcome to the forum!

Start off as simple as possible when it comes to layouts

I see a lot of beginners trying to recreate the sample projects or have ideas for complex layouts when their skills are still new.
It is important to start off small and then increase with complexity over time with practice.

Remember that you don’t need to focus on flexbox, grid, css animations, css transformations, etc all at once.
There is a lot to cover with css and it just takes time to get comfortable.

Start off with one of those concepts, and play around with some of the features little by little.
Then you can move onto another concept like grid and play around with a little bit.

But the key is to do a little bit at a time so you don’t overwhelm yourself.

As for resources, here are some good ones to check out.

Also if you want more practice with these concepts, then I suggest checking out these practice projects from the new beta responsive web design course.
CSS flexbox project
CSS grid project
CSS transformations
CSS animations

These practice projects will walk you through step by step for some of these more advanced css concepts.

Lastly, if you are stuck on a project, come to the forum and we can assist you.

Hope that helps!
