Styling Buttons in WordPress Block Themes | CSS-Tricks

A little while back, Ganesh Dahal penned a post here on CSS-Tricks responding to a tweet that asked about adding CSS box shadows on WordPress blocks and elements. There’s a lot of great stuff in there that leverages new features that shipped in WordPress 6.1 that provide controls for applying shadows to things directly in the Block Editor and Site Editor UI. Ganesh touched briefly on button elements in that

Thank You (2022 Edition) | CSS-Tricks

You know, this is the time of year where Chris normally publishes a big ol’ reflection of the past year. The first one was published in 2007, the same year CSS-Tricks began, and it continued all the way through 2021 without missing a beat. Having been a CSS-Tricks reader myself all those years, I’d hate to see that change. So, here we are! 2022 was sure a heckuva year as

2022 Roundup of Web Research | CSS-Tricks

We’ve started making a tradition of rounding up the latest front-end research at the end of each year. We did it in 2020 and again in 2021. Reports are released throughout the year by a bunch of different companies and organizations researching everything from web design trends to developer skills to popular coding languages and so many other things.

Help choose the syntax for CSS Nesting | CSS-Tricks

CSS Nesting is making the rounds yet again. Remember earlier this year when Adam and Mia put three syntax options up for a vote? Those results were tallied and it wasn’t even even close. Now there’s another chance to speak into the future of nesting, this time over at the WebKit blog. The results from the Adam and Mia’s survey sparked further discussion and two more ideas were added to

WordPress Playground: WordPress in the Browser | CSS-Tricks

Being able to quickly spin up a WordPress instance has been the strength of WordPress ever since its famous “five-minute install”. Upload a few files, configure a few settings, and you’re off. The friction of uploading files has gotten a lot easier, thanks to plenty of “one-click” install options many hosts offer (including DigitalOcean and Cloudways). Some companies have tried to abstract the process even more, using the multi-site features

Some Links on AI-Related Stuff | CSS-Tricks

Every so often, I find that the links I save to read later fall into natural groups or patterns that reveal common threads of interest. The past couple of weeks have produced a lot of thoughts about ChatGPT, an AI-powered interface that responds to requests in a chat-like exchange. Sorta like a “Hey Siri” request, but in a Discord channel. ChatGPT is just one of several AI-flavored tech, including GitHub’s

CSS Infinite 3D Sliders | CSS-Tricks

In this series, we’ve been making image sliders with nothing but HTML and CSS. The idea is that we can use the same markup but different CSS to get wildly different results, no matter how many images we toss in. We started with a circular slider that rotates infinitely, sort of like a fidget spinner that holds images. Then we made one that flips through a stack of photos. This

So, you’d like to animate the display property | CSS-Tricks

The CSS Working Group gave that a thumbs-up a couple weeks ago. The super-duper conceptual proposal being that we can animate or transition from, say, display: block to display: none. It’s a bit of a brain-twister to reason about because setting display: none on an element cancels animations. And adding it restarts animations. Per the spec: Setting the display property to none will terminate any running animation applied to the element and its descendants.
