    I guess we need to see this also: style.css

    I use notepad++ for editing:
    Notepad++ Home



    See why it would be nice to be doing your scripting online, using a real website? That would allow us to see what you're doing. Now, we just have to guess what you're doing unless you provide the script every single time you post.

    If you had your own site, we could see your HTML all by ourselves.

    Ok ...

    So here's how this deal works ...

    Here is my test page: my website

    If you view the page and right-click on it, you can select "View Page Source", or "View HTML Source", whatever browser you're using.

    You will see my actual HTML for that page.

    To see my CSS, click this link: http://www.catpin.com/coleio/style.css

    I do pay for hosting ... that is my website (see my signature at the bottom of my posts).

    I just created a new directory and plopped-in your HTML and CSS so I can edit it myself. You can copy my HTML/CSS, but you can't edit it on my site.

    You can have your own website too. All you need is a credit card. Anyone can subscribe to a shared webhost account.

    Go to a webhost like GoDaddy and subscribe to an account. You can also pick out your own domain name as long as it's not yet taken.

    This domain name, coleio.com is not yet taken.

    =====

    You might have 20 <div> sections on a page. You need to name them with an ID or class so you can individually style them.

    You seem like you need to learn every facet of web designing.... So you need to find some good tutorials to learn from. I recommend Learn HTML Online Free

    I see you now own www.coleio.com ... good job!

    Your website is simply like a hard-drive that you rent. You're given a certain amount of space. On your PC you have folders, on the website they are called directories. GoDaddy has placed a file called "index.html" on your website. That is the HTML file that opens if no other file is specified. You'll be taking the HTML script you made and uploading it to your website, and you'll name it "index.html" and overwrite the one that GoDaddy placed there.

    The next piece of free software you'll need is FileZilla:
    https://filezilla-project.org/

    That is the software you will use to move files back and forth between your PC and your website.

    When you log into your webhosting account, you'll find a thing called a "control panel". You will see a section called FTP. FTP (file transfer protocol) is what you'll use. That's what FileZilla is ... an FTP client. You can use the exiting FTP account or set up your own and log-in with FileZilla. View tutorials on FileZilla and FTP.

    Do your script editing on your PC using Notepad++, upload to your website using FileZilla, and then view or run your scripts online with your browser.
