Hey guys, in this CSS tutorial for beginners, we’re going to take a look at selector specificity (I hate pronouncing that word, even though I’m a ninja!). Essentially, this translates as how specific and how much weight your CSS selector has when it comes to dealing with conflicts. It’s a really important subject that I suggest you guys master. Keep coding :).

  4. Hello sir, I thought we can have only one ID per page but in the above example you have made three IDs header, content header and main header is that possible or I did't get it right ? Thanks..

  5. Very helpful tutorials. I have a question or a scenario rather. I'm using a Theme in wordpress and I'm trying to create a banner with css. I'm running into alot of trouble. Since it's a company site I don't want to place the url here without permission. Thanks to your tutorial I understand now that the themes point system overrode my code and I'm finally able to make changes. Thank you! If you have time I can send the url to you. If not thanks for your tutorials anyway.
