Learning to Use Grid Layout

#1

Hello everyone and thanks for the help in advance. I am very inexperienced in front end design and need to create a few quality page designs. Since my time is limited, I am considering learning grid layout as it appears to be the most recent best practice for front end development. Is this a good idea or should I go in a different direction?

Hi there kmcnet,

I would humbly suggest that you actually start
at chapter 1 rather than 31 of the CSS manual…

  1. CSS: Cascading Style Sheets
  2. CSS reference

…unless you are just a dilettante. :winky:

Thanks for the response. Not exactly a dilettante, but forced to be a jack of all trades (with emphasis on master of none - lol). Its not that I have no knowledge of CSS, but its not my strong suit and getting into responsive design is where I get really lost. I will review the references you provided as I have in the past. Where I am getting confused is in the ever evolving methodology for layout of rows, first using display: table, then flex, now grid. Functioning responsive layouts seem to use combinations and I get lost pretty quickly.
