Hi Gigi, and welcome to this place!

I don't know which programme you are using for creating websites, but if you are using the CoffeeCup HTML Editor, it should be a fairly straight-forward thing. Just open a new file and call it e.g. style.css.

You link it to the html file(s) by adding this line into your head section:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />


The style.css has to be saved at the same location as the html file(s).

Hiya Gigi and welcome to the forums and CC,

So far I've found that there's a super easy way to create your CSS file. Open a text editor of your choice such as Notepad, Notepad++, or whatever text editor you have, and create the file. Just save it as whatever you want it to be named .css and that's it. Just put your CSS code in it and refer to it as referenced by Inger above. But there's no special way you need to create this file, it's basically just a text file that is named with the .css extention instead of the default .txt extension.

About the CC stylesheet maker: That programme is quite old (outdated) by now and is not likely to be updated since there has been put so much work into the style sheet creator that is built into the html Editor.

Thanks Inger - thought I was going crazy! I knew there was something in the Editor, but I had a look and didn't find it - just the CSS Menu maker.

Hi,

For creating a css file you have to create file and save with .css, after that add the css you need and then pass the reference of that css file to html file using following code in HTML,
<link rel="stylesheet" href="filename.css" type="text/css" />

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Harit
