Understanding Pseudo Classes

Pseudo classes in CSS are used to define special states of an element. For instance, the :hover pseudo class applies a style when the user hovers over a button or link.

Implementing :before and :after

These pseudo classes allow you to insert content before or after an element’s content in the HTML document.

Apply a Pseudo Class to your Dynamic Data

  1. Open the page or post editor where you want to apply the pseudo classes.
  2. Assign a custom class to your heading, such as PriceStart.
