Hello great post! ,now that I've enabled the widgets I want, how can I change the positioning? Also, is there a way to customize the mobile version to be exactly or atleast close to the Web version. So far, it's just the backgroup image it's adopting.

CCan I use my phone to edit my html code?

September 7, 2016 at 7:35 AM

Whatever you feel comfortable with to be honest. I find phones being too tiny to read through. And if you want to view as you're editing, on the phone, it's difficult. Hope that helps.x
