HELP! I screwed up and don't know how to fix!

So... I was trying to remove the stream from the frontpage. And using the inspect elements I started marking things as {display:none;} to become invisible. I got rid of the stream title and the stream itself, but there was a small hr divider I also wanted to remove. So I inspected the elements and found "div.large-12.columns" it removed the divider just fine... the problem is it also removed the window where I edit the main CSS!

I've tried going back and I can't get it back. How do I fix this!? Please help!

    "div.large-12.columns" includes quite a few elements on various pages throughout the site, including the Custom CSS field that is in Settings. Navigate to the Settings page, open up the Inspect Element, and see if you can display the CSS field so you can remove that CSS from your pages.

    Because all of the elements are hidden, you will not see any listed on the DevTools when you inspect the page, but you can select a random element and replace the info with:


    .large-12{
    display:contents!important;
    }

    That should temporarily reveal the Custom CSS fields, enabling you to remove that pesky CSS from your code as a permanent fix.

    No Problem! Glad I could help. That's what this community is here for! When I first started on my Custom CSS journey, there were a few times when I bungled things up pretty bad and it took forever to untangle the mess I made. I cannot stress enough how important it is to make sure you've closed off your CSS entries with a curly bracket! If you miss one, it is a horrible mess trying to figure out where the train derailed.
