How to add selector to an element?

  • You may want to use “HTML Block” Gutenberg Block
  • If you use Classic Editor you could switch to Text Mode and type in html

I want to highlight current element, how to find correct selector?

So this depends on which theme you use, examine the code (Firefox: right click on sidebar and ”Inspect Element”; Chrome: right click on sidebar than select “Inspect”) and find yout element. This element have some class or id, and that’s the selector we need. If using class than don’t forget to ad dot (.) in front of class name, or hash (#) in front of id name.
