Sorry – CodePen is the preferred platform here. It’s trusted, we are able to test live edits more easily there, and we can do so from any device (not just desktop). The setup encourages you to present us with minimal, clearly separated code; just enough to demo the problem, which helps us to help you more concisely and quickly.

Conversely, a live site link is more restrictive; it requires us to be on desktop and troubleshoot via the developer console, usually while filtering out all the other distractions of a full site codebase. Hence, it isn’t as easy or appealing for us to work that way. It also requires a level of trust, since many opportunists use forums to solicit extra hits, many of us simply won’t click on principle.

In short, you’re more likely to receive the help you want/need if you provide us with a reduced demo in CodePen.
