Just DO it.

This may seem really simple, but sometimes just doing it, works. A lot of the time you will hesitate when wanting to try something different in web development. For example, if you have an idea of how to implement functionality, my advice is just to do it! Try it out. If it doesn't work, try something else - it's the best way to self learn as well after you have learned the basics and fundamentals.

Seek advice.

Seeking good experienced advice from a web developer who knows what they are talking about is a great way to solidify and help you understand a problem. If you're stuck on an issue and you really can't understand how to fix or implement it, then sometimes, asking a senior or more experienced web developer will benefit you. They can pass knowledge and expertise on to you which you'll never forget!

Take a break.

I find a lot of times if I've hit a problem in web development I can't solve, taking a quick 5-minute break and coming back to the code helps massively. You can clear your head in the space of 5 minutes, get a new perspective on things, and get fresh ideas. Most of the time it works and it can work for you too!

These are just some pointers to keep in mind when you are developing and implementing new ideas/solutions after you've learnt the fundamentals and basics.

Ps. I've recently started a YouTube channel for coding tutorials, would love to see you over there. Alan Montgomery - Coding Tutorials
