    Hey guys, this is my site:

    I’ve been using the CSS grid and I was wondering if it is the standard to position elements like images or text (i.e. h1) using margin? That’s how I positioned basically all my elements if you look at my index.php. I use the grid to set the containers, like .header-img and .header-txt and .links (for the menu) and everything is usually shittily aligned so I have to use margins.

    Is this the proper way to do it? It takes F****ing forever. Also, if i try doing like position: relative or absolute, the images or text will jump out the container (out of the flow, which I know is a property of absolute) and its super f****ing annoying.

    Is there any easier way to do this? Doing the media queries and setting manual pixel/rem/em margins takes so many goddamn hours and I”m not even a webdesigner AND Then if I view it on mobile its utter dog shit, so I get it perfect for mobile and then check tablet 768px size and its utter dog shit there…..

    …I need a better method… please help or recommend me any youtube videos/tutorials, because I can make the sites creative wise- thats simple, but Im so bad with dimensions and never know when to set concrete pixels widths/heights or when to use percentages (or fractions in the CSS grid case).

    Help :(


    Without knowing what the specific issues are it’s hard to help.

    Also working with a link makes this a little hard.

    A minimal demo of one specific issue, ideally in would be much more helpful.
