I’ve watched the Webflow tutorials on positioning over and over and over, and I still don’t get it. Just now, I create a div, put in a text block, add top margin to the text block, and the parent div is now moving down, whereas the text block stays exactly where it was within the parent.
I find the Webflow tutorials to be severely over simplified, to the point where they oversell “design without coding,” which clearly is false. This is really “code by designing.”
I’ve searched, and it’s really hard to find someone who actually knows the right balance. Most the time I get crazy advanced stuff on Stackoverflow, or back to ultra over-simplified basics like the Webflow videos. Does anyone have any recommendation for good tutorials that actually explain how the basics really work? For example, have no clue why my text block margin not adding margin around the text block, but it is pushing it’s parent away its parent.
I’ll try anything at this point, but I’ve got a deadline. I’ll keep banging my head against the wall clicking around randomly till something works because I have no choice, but I’d rather watch a nice 30-60 min vid that really really explains this. Clearly, without truly understanding blocks vs inline blocks, and positioning (along with float and clear?), as if it was 2nd nature, you can’t really use Webflow without extreme frustration.
