Adding HTML and CSS to my site

Recommended Posts

I am looking to add custom HTML and CSS to my site but I can only seem to add one at a time and they dont work together when I add them separately. Anyone please explain how to get this to work or where I need to add the code for it to work.

I am looking to add a timeline to my site and found basic code to test with online but it only adds the HTML code and the CSS doesnt seem to change it when added. 

Thanks

Can you share the HTML and CSS code you want to add so I can try?

It's noticed that you need to wrap the Css code on the <style></style>
