Sometimes you just cant learn things; no matter how many times you have to do them, you end up having to look them up anyway!?!?

For me its linking CSS files, I can never remember this line:  :ohdear:
Code
<link href="/styles/common.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" />

Also tables; do the <tr>'s go in the <td>'r or.. no its the other way round.. and is a <th> or a <td> the one I want..

What are the codes you have a hard time remembering??  :dunno:

Same brain here for the table! I can never remember the specific order of elements there, and always end up referring to previous code or copying and pasting a template LOL.

I also routinely forget to add target=_blank at the end of my links, as well as that favicon line of code!
Code
<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/images/favicon.ico">

I've no idea why! Because I use all of these things near enough every day LOL!  :dive: But just like you said;

I think ahead so hard to the actual CSS, HTML etc. that I wanna write so when I sit down to actually write, I suddenly blank out and forget the first few lines...

so

Code
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
    <meta charSet="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>the title</title>
    <meta name="title" content="the title" />
    <meta name="description" content="thee description" />

is something I have had to copy over from my other files like 20 different times now..
It's just super boring and I wanna go to the actually interesting stuff.

Odo was just an idea. Shevek is the proof.

I always forget how to change the fonts. I know google fonts makes it easy with their copy and paste but if I just want to use Calibri or something I have to go look up the code. And then the code's just:
Code
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

I constantly have trouble remembering the flexbox properties. Dealing with flex is already difficult to comprehend by itself too lol.

Code
.flexbox {
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: row;
    flex-wrap: wrap;
    gap: 10px;
    /*etc...*/
}

For some weird reason I also find myself searching how to create iframes even though they are not that difficult to learn by heart. :drat:

Code
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
    <meta charSet="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>the title</title>
    <meta name="title" content="the title" />
    <meta name="description" content="thee description" />

Same here! I have never memorised the meta tags. I keep on copying and pasting them around for convenience.

One of the HTML codes that I always forget and can't quite remember is that metatag to redirect to another page. Sometimes I have to open another tab and search Google DuckDuckGo for the code lol

Code
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; url='https://example.com'" />

I usually use existing pages on my site as reference, so I don't actually need to type any of these more obscure tags. :evil:
