Making a Div Container Clickable
Hi there. This video we are going to go through and make every part of this card clickable. Okay, all in one go rather than adding a tags to every single separate element, the whole thing. It's going to be nice and clickable. Going to one place. Alright, let's jump in and work out how to do it now. All right. So I want this entire thing clickable. Um I want the icon clickable, the text clickable, all of the clickable at once. Going to the same place. So I could go through and slowly but surely go. I could wrap my H. Two in an A. Tag. So at the beginning there I'll type in an A. I need a space for this like all the pretty hinting to work. Okay, so I need a space between my H. Two and a. Okay. And then the wrapper goes from you. I put the atec opens before it and afterwards doesn't need the space is just and therefore make it clear. Okay. And where is it going to go? It's going to go to this random place. I haven't decided yet. Okay. And that works okay. It's gone purple because it's a v...
isited link which is not cool but we'll fix that but I can keep doing that for this font for this P tag. Okay, I could do that forever but it's easier to wrap the entire card in an A tag. Okay. Some undoing all back. So problematic way. Okay, so at the beginning of this a tag. I'm going to say at the beginning of this card one. I'm going to wrap this entire thing. Right? So the div clicking the div and it should highlight. Okay, so there's the beginning and the ending. So I want to start this a tag here. It's going to go to hash and if you forgot what the hash does or the pound sign, remember it's just a placeholder link because I don't have any other pages. This particular project will make other pages because we will um but that is now going to make it an entire link kind of watch that would normally work. It is working like everything is gone purple because it's a visited link will make it white but it's actually working, you know, I can click on them all. It's all activated. The trouble is it wrecked my boxes. You're like what happened there? Okay. Remember when we were talking about flex box because these cards use flex box. Right. And where's cards plural? The top of your cards? We said display flex. Okay. And we made these guys 30%. And the cool thing about flex boxes that just jam them all on one line and then we space them evenly. So we're using lots of flex box attributes. And I remember one of the rules was that your cards have to be direct Children of the parent. Okay, so the parent says your flex and then these guys have to be directly underneath. What we've gone and done is we've jammed a tag in between the the happy family. Okay, so cards needs to our cards one needs to be directly the next descendant from cards. I've taken the the family thing too far. Right? Got a dysfunctional family therapy therapy for our dip tax. And so what we're gonna do is we're going to undo that. And how do we get around that in this case? What we're gonna do is we're gonna say we only the ad tag to wrap around these three. It doesn't need to be around this. Okay. It would be cool because I love the whole thing to be clickable but at the moment it's just going to be all the ingredients. Okay, all this stuff inside and I'm happy enough with that. So our a tag is going to go to hash Okay. And I'll grab all of that, paste it there, get it in the right place. What are we gonna do? See you their tab this out a little bit. I'm doing nothing now but tabbing. So it all looks nice. So cards, cards one inside of it, then my a tag and then all this stuff and these are all equally important to not inside each other. So they're all in the same kind of margin on the side here, let's get a preview and a chick and it works and you're like, it's all purple. It's not working. Okay. The default color for links that have been visited our purple. We're going to change that. So let's go and change it. This is a pop quiz as well. Are you ready? Pop quiz? You're gonna pause it in a second and try and work it out on your own and then come back and see if you've got close. Alright, so I want you to make a white, I want you to get rid of the underline. How would you do it? Okay, pause it now and I'll see you in a sec. Alright, you're back. There's a couple of ways you can do it. Um So what you can do it, you can say if there's cards plural. Okay. Um and there's a tag with an H2 in it. Okay. You could do like a multi combination one. Okay. If there's https there inside an a tag that our cards, I want to say the color is going to be white. Okay look this is our way. Okay. I just want to, you can see there if it's an H2, it's in there, it's white and I can say text decoration. This one might be got you. Alright, you're like hell do you get rid of the underline text decoration? Okay. None. None even. Alright, so the line's gone underneath it. It is not because I've done something wrong. What did I do wrong there? Text decoration Often I need the code helping to um make sure my syntax is right. My spelling is right. Underlines gone. Alright so that doesn't work. We've still got an underline. Okay, even though that was good But then I have to go through and do one for the a tag and then the icon and then that's a drama way. So you might have gone down that route and you might have a couple of different classes. You could actually just say actually it doesn't need to be that specific. Just eight tags inside of classes. Let's give that a go, jackpot. Now, what you also might do is you go I'm going to run into that problem lot. I never wanted to be purple and I never wanted to be underlined what you might start deciding. Is that remember our CSS reset at the top here. Okay, we made our own CSS reset. Okay that eric Myers one, we might call it the eric Myers slash dan scott one because we might go into this CSS reset. Where is he? And start making our own version. Okay, so we might go in here and say actually I want all of the eight tags to be uh to be white please and have no underline. Okay and you can add it to this then I don't need it in here. Okay I don't need to say it. So you might find that every time I do a website, I never want the underline, so you can start making your own CSS reset. Okay, I'm not going to say that. Did I say restore Myers this time. I know you're sure. All right, Sorry. ErIC Myers Alright, if you did it in a different way, I'd love to see it in the comments. Okay, let me know how you did it to get a little screenshot of how you made it work. Um Yeah, that's the way I made it work. You might find it even a better way, have a good reason for it. But all that really matters to me at the moment is that it's clickable. Okay. And it's all white with no underlines. So the rest of this video is not going to be very exciting and we're going to go through and do it all. One thing I want to do though while we're here. Okay, we're starting to get to a point where I don't know, depends. You might be like, this is still really hard and I don't know what I'm doing, but if you're feeling just a little less nervous about it and looking at your site, your like and you've made this part, I want you to be proud. I want you to go through and go actually look at this code, this code going on, I'm coding a website, there's lots of things still to learn. You can see there's lots of videos still coding in this course, but hopefully you can get a sense of scrolling up and down. Kick back and go look at me. I understand what most of that works, you know at the moment that you might not next week but at the moment you're like actually I could go through and start adjusting stuff or at least make another site of equal Um complexity of this one. I don't want you to forget that I want you to be proud because there's always stuff to learn like I'm okay as a web designer but there are many people way better than me but I it doesn't matter like even if I finish a website and it's quite simple, I always look back and go like look at me doing the coding feels good, I hope you feel good. That's enough. Now let's go and finish the last bits off. I'm gonna wrap all the rest of these guys in tags so I'm going to copy that. I'm gonna put in multiple curses were just here put one just there holding down on my Mac. Sorry my markets option key to click twice on my on your pc. It's probably old. But remember you can do multi curses, you can go and check what it is in here. Okay at space in pace that in I'm gonna tap it back so it's kind of where I want it to be tab. All of this multi curses are handy right about there and then I close off my a tag so I will do it multi curses and I'm going to put it in my egg tag closing of the a here we go. Nice. Alright. You you you you you check it and the browser haven't broken it. It's all clickable. It doesn't go anywhere. If you're like, man, this hashtag thing doesn't work. Just type in http colon slash slash www darts. Get A B. Y. O. L. That's me. That's my site. And if you're not already read directly to my side, at least let's have a little look click. Make sure you hit save click card to dan card too. All right. That's enough of this video and the shenanigans. I will see you in the next video. Hello, me.
