Hi, Can someone please tell me how to follow the part in Zac Gordon's tutorials where he switches between coding and looking at the source codes in his browser? For example in the project "how to create a wp theme" , stage 4 preparing to code wp template in his lesson on linking CSS at approx 2min:46secs.

If you right click in your browser and choose "view page source" while viewing the page you're working on, you will see what he's looking at. He was using this to illustrate the file was/wasn't updating, otherwise it's not a necessary tool for the course.

Not sure exactly what you're asking for, but do you mean where to add the wp_head() function that we talk about?

Or is a question about the functions.php file?


Hi, Thank you for the help, much appreciated.
