@themolitorNice demo! Maybe change the H1s to p tags so it all fits into view? Right now the H1s are causing a lot overflow in the "results" view of the demo. 👍
@ByteAtATimeOh, sorry! I was viewing it on a large screen, didn't know it was going to be embedded. Should be changed now!
@themolitorYES! Much better 🤘
