Here here Tom.
The first time we ever had to build a bar? Googled that shit and found a nice diagram from the framework and structure.
First time we made tables? Google.
Literally anything we have ever been unsure about, google and YouTube have saved the day.
We built our own website on Wordpress (although now on Squarespace) the same way you did – figured it out step by step!
I agree that sometimes people do hold knowledge or skills or advice that is hard to get online. Some questions do need asked.
But the majority just ask questions that will bring answers they could have got in ten seconds on google.
