    Hi Guys,
    Im new to coding CSS from a text editor as I usually just manipulate css through wordpress themes, so my question is fairly elementary.
    I am using Text Wrangler to write the code, but where do I view it to make sure it looks ok online???
    Confused and feeling a bit silly.

    Are you using a local server (Mamp, Wamp, Xamp)? I’m quite confused by your question. Are you trying to edit the online site locally?

    To make changes locally and have them effect the live site, you need an FTP program.

    1. Use local server, as @chrisburton said, depending on your OS you’d want either MAMP for OS X, WAMP for Windows or XAMPP for pretty much any OS, including Linux.
    2. Use text editor with FTP functionality built-in, either by default (Coda for OS X) or by plugin (Sublime Text 2 with FTP-Sync).
    3. The Tedious Way™ – use text editor and separate FTP client, for example FileZilla
