Ask on StackOverflow (with a clear code example), get voted down, get (possibly harshly worded) feedback, try try, and try again! Good luck :)

PS: You can delete downvoted posts on SO, so just try and keep going. Don't give up.

Rethink what you want to achieve. CSS is hard. If you just want to create useful sites choose one of the CSS frameworks instead and just learn it's APIs. If you want to practice CSS then CSS battle is quite good. They give you a reference image and you have to use the inline code editor to write html and CSS to match. It is heavy on translate/transform as you are trying to match a fixed size puxel-by-pixel reference rather than nested elements in a reactive style with unknown text content but it's a good place to start.

What really helped me is to understand first what I actually want to do, asking the right question can save a lot of time.
Google your question is the best option at this stage of coding. Maximum of your solution you will find in StackOverflow.
Also, check out the popular CSS frameworks
They were actually a game changer for me.

Don't stuck with online learning. Find a real person who can help you in practicing. Online courses will help you after you get confident in coding.
