Web pages are just documents your web browser displays. But what if you could type directly on any web page to modify it? You can, and you don’t need a browser extension—it’s a feature built into every modern browser.
You could use this feature to clean up a web page before printing it, test how changes to a web page will look, or even just prank people. It’ll be just like editing a Word document—no messing with HTML required.
To activate this feature, visit a web page and then open the developer console. To open the console in Google Chrome, click menu > More Tools > Developer Tools or press Ctrl+Shift+i.
While we’re using Chrome as an example here, this feature works in other modern browsers, too. Here’s how to open the console in other browsers:
- In Mozilla Firefox, click menu > Web Developer > Web Console or press Ctrl+Shift+K.
- In Microsoft Edge, click menu > More Tools > Developer Tools or press F12 and then click the “Console” tab.
Click the “Console” tab at the top of the Developer Tools panel. Type the following into the console and press Enter:
You can now close the console, if you like, and edit the current web page as if it was an editable document. Click somewhere to insert your cursor and type text. Use the Backspace or Delete keys to remove text, images, and other elements.
This just changes how the web page appears in your browser. As soon as you refresh the page, you’ll see the original once again. If you go to another web page or tab, it won’t be in design mode until you open the console and type this line once again.
You can even go back into the console and run the following command to turn design mode off:
The web page won’t be editable anymore, but your changes will be preserved until you next refresh the page.

Internet Explorer is often decried as the worst browser for web developers, but IE8 actually offers a very nice set of developer tools. Here we’ll look at a unique way to use them to edit the text on any webpage.
How to edit text in a webpage
IE8’s developer tools make it easy to make changes to a webpage and view them directly. Simply browse to the webpage of your choice, and press the F12 key on your keyboard. Alternately, you can click the Tools button, and select Developer tools from the list.
This opens the developer tools. To do our editing, we want to select the mouse button on the toolbar “Select Element by Click” tool.
Now, click on any spot of the webpage in IE8 that you want to edit. Here, let’s edit the footer of Google.com. Notice it places a blue box around any element you hover over to make it easy to choose exactly what you want to edit.
In the developer tools window, the element you selected before is now highlighted. Click the plus button beside that entry if the text you want to edit is not visible.
Go back to IE to see the changes on the page!
You can also change a link on a page this way:
Or you can even change the text on a button:
Here’s our edited Google.com:
This may be fun for playing a trick on someone or simply for a funny screenshot, but it can be very useful, too. You could test how changes in fontsize would change how a website looks, or see how a button would look with a different label. It can also be useful when taking screenshots. For instance, if I want to show a friend how to do something in Gmail but don’t want to reveal my email address, I could edit the text on the top right before I took the screenshot. Here I changed my Gmail address to [email protected].
Please note that the changes will disappear when you reload the page. You can save your changes from the developer tools window, though, and reopen the page from your computer if you wish.
We have found this trick very helpful at times, and it can be very fun too! Enjoy it, and let us know how you used it to help you!
Staring at your website and just obsessing over a few little things that just don’t seem “right”.
Maybe it’s the text, the font, the spacing, the colors, or something else.
Either way, you wish you could simply make a quick edit and hit save when everything looks perfect.
The good news is that modern browsers, (like Chrome, Firefox and Safari) offer a couple ways to preview simple changes to any webpage. Yes, any web page. Even ones that aren’t yours!
This means you can modify the HTML and CSS (also known as source code) right in your browser.
Keep in mind, this only modifies the local version on your computer and doesn’t actually rewrite anything on the server. It’s just a preview.
But wait, there’s more!
There is now a way to make edits to your website using your browser’s developer tools that can be permanently saved on the server, so keep reading!
Here is the step-by-step process for editing a web page using Google Chrome.
How to edit a website using developer tools
- Open any web page with Chrome and hover your mouse over the object you want to edit (ie: text, buttons, or images).
- Right-click the object and choose “Inspect” from the context menu.The developer tools will open in the lower half of your screen and the selected element will be highlighted within the interface, also known as the DOM.
- Double-click the selected object and it will switch to edit mode. You can replace the text or style attributes (ie: colors, fonts, spacing) and then click outside the DOM to apply the changes.
- Use the “find” shortcut to help you look for specific text or style attributes. (“CMD + F” on Mac or “CTRL + F” on PC)
Edit any website’s text using our handy bookmarklet
- Highlight the bolded below:
Now that you know how to modify any website, let’s get back to what’s most important.
How to edit your website and save the changes
This could not be any simpler. If your website is built and hosted with Pagecloud, you can use your browser’s developer tools to make permanent edits to any of your web pages.
Using the developer tools with Pagecloud:
- Log in to Pagecloud.
- Go to the page on your website you want to modify.
- Click on the ‘edit page’ symbol in the bottom right hand corner. If you can’t see it, refresh the page. (“CMD + R” on Mac or “CTRL + R” on PC).
- Once the editor is loaded, follow these steps.
- Hit save in the editor or use the shortcut: (“CMD + S” on Mac or “CTRL + S” on PC).
How about some even better news? You can bypass the developer tools and simply make changes right in the editor.

Web pages are read-only but did you know that it is possible to edit the content of a web page directly in your web browser. This step-by-step tutorial explains how you can easily edit the content of any web page using Developer Tools. I’ve used Google Chrome for this example but Developer tools are available in all browsers including Mozilla Firefox and Safari.
How to Edit Web Pages
Here’s a step by step guide on how you edit the webpage text even if that website is not your own.
- Open any web page inside Chrome and select the text on the web page that you wish to edit.
- Right-click the selected text and choose Inspect Element in the contextual menu.
- The developer tools will open in the lower half of your browser and the corresponding DOM element will be selected.
- Double-click the selected node and it will switch to edit mode. Now change the text inside Dev Tools and click outside the Chrome Dev Tools window to apply the changes.
If you are familiar with HTML tags, you can use the same technique to not just edit the text on web pages but also replace images, change formatting styles, and more.
The Chrome Inspect Tool technique is useful for making a couple of quick edits but if you are making multiple text changes on a web page, there’s a better approach.
Edit Websites Like a Wiki
What this will do is make your entire web page editable just like a Wiki or a Word document. You can now click anywhere on the web page and start typing.
Please do note that web page edits are temporary and the changes are lost when you close the browser. The technique is however still handy if you are taking screenshots of web pages and would like to conceal or replace some phrase before capturing the image.
With HTML5, you can set any of your Web page text elements to be editable by users. Using the “contenteditable” attribute, you can instruct the browser to allow users to insert, delete and alter the text your page contains as they view it. There are many possible uses for this technique, such as allowing users to customize the way your pages appear to them each time they visit. In this tutorial, we will run through the basics of letting users edit your text content, including saving their edits for future reference using the HTML5 storage model.
Create a Page
You can add the techniques in this tutorial to any existing HTML5 pages you have. Otherwise, create your HTML5 Web page using the following structure:
Add an Editable Element
Add an editable element in the body section of your page using the following markup:
Save User Edits
Once the user has edited the element, they can press this button to save their changes. You could alternatively carry out the saving automatically, detecting key presses and saving whenever the user edit occurs. Let’s also include an element to provide confirmation that the changes have been saved. On initially viewing the page, this element will display instructions:
When the edits are saved to HTML5 storage, we will update this text to let the user know.
In the script section in your page head, add the following function to process saving the user edits:
This code retrieves the element content before saving it to the Local Storage object. The Local Storage object stores data that remains accessible on subsequent user visits. This will allow us to retrieve the information again if the user re-visits the page in future. If you only want to save the user edits for the current session, use the Session Storage object instead. Finally, the function writes a confirmation message to the page, to let the user know that their edits have been saved.
Now we need to handle the situation in which the user has visited before and has edits saved. Extend your page opening body tag as follows:
Each time a user visits the page, we will check to see if they have stored edits. Add the following function in the script area of your page head:
When a user visits, they will see the default text if they have no edits saved from past visits. If the user has saved edits in the past, they will see their own saved text in place of the default text. The user can also make future edits and save them at any time.
Save your page and test it in a browser to ensure it works. You can save multiple items of data using HTML5 storage. This means that you can combine “contenteditable” with the storage framework in HTML5 to create highly customizable user interfaces, allowing your users a good level of control over the browsing experience.
The “contenteditable” attribute can be set to true, false or inherit – in which case the property is determined by whether or not the parent element is editable.
With HTML5 features, you need to consider browser support issues. However, the good news is that the “contenteditable” attribute is supported by all of the main browsers already, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome. You can use the techniques in the above examples pretty freely, as the Local and Session Storage objects are also widely supported.

Do you want to show and hide text easily in your WordPress posts and pages?
Sometimes you might want to allow your users to see hidden content when they click on a specific link. This is especially helpful when you want to feature a frequently asked questions section.
In this article, you’ll learn how to show and hide text in WordPress posts with the toggle effect.
The first thing you need to do is install and activate the Show-Hide / Collapse-Expand plugin. For more details, see our step-by-step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.
The plugin works out of the box, and there are no options for you to configure.
It allows you to use two methods to hide any text on your website with a link to expand and show the text.
Show Hide Text in WordPress Using Shortcode
For this method you will need to manually add a shortcode to show or hide text.
Here is a sample shortcode that you can use as a starting point.
[bg_collapse view=”link” expand_text=”Show More” collapse_text=”Show Less”]
The text you want to hide…
After adding the shortcode to your post or page, you can save your changes and preview it. You’ll see a plain ‘Show More’ link and clicking on it will reveal the hidden text.
There are plenty of parameters for this shortcode which will change the appearance of your show / hide text.
For instance, you can add a button instead of plain link, add icons, and even use custom CSS within this shortcode.
However, it would be quite complicated to generate this shortcode manually. In that case, you can use the second method which allows you to generate the shortcode using a visual editor.
Show Hide Text in WordPress Using Visual Editor
For this method, you’ll need to add the ‘Classic’ block in your WordPress content editor. Simply click on the add new block button and search for the ‘Classic’ block.
Once you insert the classic block, you’ll see a visual editor with formatting buttons that looks similar to the older classic WordPress editor.
In the toolbar, you need to click on the ‘Collapse/Expand’ button. This will bring up a popup where you configure the shortcode parameters visually.
From here you can choose the link or button, color, icons, and the text to display for show and hide buttons.
After choosing the parameters, click the ‘OK’ button to insert it into your post. You’ll see the shortcode added inside your post editor.
You can now go ahead and add the text that you want to hide between the shortcode start and end tags.
After that, you can save your post or page and visit your website to see your changes in action. Here is how it looked on our test site.
We hope this article helped you learn how to show and hide text in WordPress posts with the toggle effect. You may also want to check out our list of the must have WordPress plugins for all websites, and our tutorial on how to add dynamic personalized content in WordPress.

That’s a good way to ask, finally.
I think your problem is that there is not a straight forward way to do this, and if you didn’t find anything on google and here, then it’s probably just a matter of keywords.
The fact is that, you don’t run a program, hack the website and a nice windows will show you the content of the website with arrows and text field to practically change (I guess you know it, just writing this for future reference ;)).
If you are really interested, the process generally sounds like this.
First, start with Linux theory (we have a lot of that stuff here, also programming skill is appreciated!), then follow some recon and exploiting how-tos to taste how it works, try it your own in your lab test.
Once you understand the process and get into it, you have plenty of ways.
Search something like this. Probably, all those 3 letters words and vulnerability don’t mean anything to you, but that’s the way you do what you asked for, just never give up!
Finally, a recap that IMO should be used every time a question like this is asked, here we have the “hacking for newbies” forum by OTW. I strongly recommend you to read it and follow the entire process.
PS: To hack the content of the web page, you must have access to the server and then edit the files with an editor of your choice.

These are all necessities for having an update to date web presence that properly informs your visitors and gives them updated and relevant information and keeps search engines coming back to index your website which can in turn improve visibility to your site.

Hyperlinks are a part of our everyday lives—we readily recognize the underlined blue font as a link to related information. The visual clue is helpful in most cases. However, there are times when you’ll want to remove the special formatting in Microsoft Word because it’s distracting or to follow other conventions. Modifying the hyperlink so it resembles the remaining text is simple. In this article, I’ll show you how to modify the hyperlink manually and how to modify the Hyperlink style, updating all hyperlinks.
I’m using Microsoft 365 on a Windows 10 64-bit system, but you can use earlier versions. There’s no demonstration file; you won’t need one. You can modify the appearance of a link in the online version, but you can’t modify a style.
How to modify hyperlinks one at a time in Word
If you’re dealing with a few hyperlinks, you can manually change the style as you would any other text. The default style is underlined blue text, so you’d remove the underline and change the font color. You can also change the text! Let’s work through a brief example:
- Type any url or address to generate a hyperlink, such as https://techrepublic.com.
- Select the hyperlink and click Underline in the Font group to remove the underline.
- With the hyperlink still selected, click Font Color (Font group), and choose a new font color, such as Automatic, black or the same color as the rest of your text.
At this point, the hyperlink is still a hyperlink; you didn’t remove the link. You only changed the way it looks, as shown in Figure A.
If you want to go a step further, you can add the link to regular text as follows:
- Copy the url to the Clipboard.
- Enter the text, TechRepublic, and select it.
- Right-click the selected text and choose Link from the submenu.
- In the Address control, paste the url, as shown in Figure B.
- Click OK.
It makes no difference how the pasted url is formatted beforehand; Word will format the selection as a hyperlink, as shown in Figure C, when you paste the url. At this point, you can remove the underline and change the font color, as you would ordinary text; readers won’t readily know it’s a hyperlink, but it is. You can see for yourself by checking the selection’s style—it’s Hyperlink! So is the hyperlink in the middle—where you manually changed the underline and font color properties. It’s still a hyperlink as well.
This is all basic and works well for individual links. When changing multiple links, this manual process is tedious, so let’s look at a method that updates all hyperlinks at once.
How to update the hyperlink style in Word
If you have several links you want to change, changing the style is the quickest route. Doing so will change all hyperlinked references, so it’s an-all-or-nothing venture. When doing so, you can modify the underlying template, Normal, but I recommend that you not do so—unless you really mean to remove the underlined blue text from your life forever. (OK, you can always revert, but you’ll need to remember that you changed the Hyperlink style.)
Right now, you have an example of the hyperlink display that you want—the middle one. There’s no underline and the font color is Automatic (or black or whatever you want). When you have an example in the document, the quickest way to update everything is use that text as follows:
- Select the middle link—the one with no underline and black text. Select the entire element to get the best results.
- Click the Styles dropdown to open the Styles pane. Hyperlink should be selected. If not, don’t worry about it. Find Hyperlink in the list.
- Right-click Hyperlink (in the Styles pane) and choose Update Hyperlink to Match Selection from the submenu as shown in Figure D.
As you can see in Figure E, all three hyperlinks (they really are hyperlinks) look like ordinary text. Beyond that, any new links you create or paste into the document will also be black text with no underline—but they will be hyperlinks.
In step 1 of the previous exercise, I told you to select the entire element (hyperlink) for the best results. If you click it, you lose the underline property because it’s a character property. When you update the style, it won’t remove the underline from existing links, and the underline will persist in new links.
In addition, we updated the style in the current document. We didn’t update the Normal template. Doing so isn’t available using this quick route. If you decide to do so, repeat steps 1 and 2 above. In step 3, click Modify instead. In the resulting dialog, click the New Documents Based on this Template option near the bottom (Figure F), and click OK. However, I recommend you give this application-level change serious thought before doing so.
Removing the user-friendly and well-known hyperlink style from text isn’t difficult. You can do so manually or by changing the Hyperlink style.

In this guide, we will show you how to edit a website file on your server. Many times when you are configuring your website you will need to modify a file, such as when you are updating a code or a file path. There are several ways you can do this. For example, you can use the cPanel File Manager editor, an FTP program, or a program like Notepad++ to edit files.
NOTE: When updating files on your server, you may need to clear your browser cache to see the changes. For more information on clearing your browser cache, please see the article on How to Clear Your Browser’s Cache.
Edit a Website With File Manager in cPanel
You can edit files directly on your server using the File Manager editor. File Manager is a browser-based editor you can find in your cPanel.
This is sometimes called “Editing on the fly“. Editing on the fly is usually reserved for minor changes. When editing files directly on the server, the change takes effect immediately. The problem with editing files directly on the server is that you are editing the live copy. When editing the live copy, your site can break if a mistake happens and you cannot undo the change after it is saved.
In order to edit a backup copy of your files, you may want to use FTP instead. This is because, with FTP you typically download a copy of the file you want to edit, then upload and replace the old file. We will cover FTP more in-depth in the sections below. But, first here is a general step-by-step on how to edit files through the File Manager.
NOTE: If you do not know where your files are located on the server, please see our article on What directory should I put my files in?.
. in cPanel.
- Select your directory.
- Right-click and Edit the file with the File Manager editor.
- You can then edit the file as needed.
- Save the changes. You can then view your live site and see the changes.
Using FTP to Edit Website
Files can be downloaded and uploaded using an FTP client installed on your computer. For example, you can edit a PHP file, or edit an HTML file by downloading it and making changes then uploading it when you are finished.
Since FTP programs run directly on your computer, there is no need to access cPanel or an internet browser before accessing your files.
Below are the basic steps to edit a file using FTP. For more information please see our Getting Started Guide: FTP article.
- Connect with FTP. Below is a screenshot of FileZilla connected to my server’s public_html folder.
- Download the file.
- Edit the file on your computer with notepad or another code editor such as Sublime Text.
- Re-upload the file to the server and overwrite the existing file. The changes should reflect now on your live site.
Edit a Website With an Editor Like Notepad++
You can edit files directly on your server using Notepad++. NotePad++ is a Windows-based editing program that also has FTP capabilities. This means you can use this single program to connect with FTP and edit the file as well.
For information on editing your files with Notepad++, please see the following article:

Similarly, when you edit existing text in a PDF and the font is not available on the system, by default the font fall-backs to a specific font in a particular script. For example, font fall-backs to Minion Pro in roman script fonts. This default behavior can lead to fonts with an inconsistent appearance in a PDF document. To make it consistent throughout all the PDFs, you can choose a specific font for both adding text and editing text using the Font Options under the Content Editing preferences.
In Acrobat, on the Edit menu, choose Preferences. The Preferences dialog box is displayed.
(Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+K keys on Windows or Command+K keys on macOS.)
In the dialog box, click Content Editing under Categories. The Font Options are displayed as shown in the screenshot below.
Select an appropriate font in the drop-down lists:
- Fallback Font for Editing
- Default Font for Add Text and Font Size
Click OK to save the changes and close the Preferences dialog box.
When you edit text, the text in the paragraph reflows within its text box to accommodate the changes. Each text box is independent, and inserting text in one text block does not push down an adjacent text box or reflow to the next page.
Choose Tools > Edit PDF > Edit .
Select the text you want to edit. The text-box turns blue upon selection, and a rotation handle appears at the top of the selected text-box.
- Type new text to replace the selected text, or press Delete to remove it.
- To rotate the text box, use the rotation handle at the top of the selected text box.
- Manage list items using the list controls (bulleted and numbered) in the right-side Format panel. You can create list items, convert an existing paragraph to a list item, convert an existing list item to a paragraph, and convert from one list type to another.
- Select a font, font size, or other formatting options in the right-side Format panel. You can also use the advanced format options, such as line spacing, character spacing, horizontal scaling, stroke width, and color.
For legal reasons, you must have purchased a font and have it installed on your system to revise text using that font.
You can edit text only if the font used for that text is installed on your system. If the font isn’t installed on your system, but is embedded in the PDF, you can change only the color or font size. If the font is not installed or embedded, you can’t edit any of the text.
Choose Tools > Edit PDF > Edit .
Select the text you want to change.
In the right-side Format panel, select a font, font size, or other formatting options. You can also use the advanced format options, such as line spacing, character spacing, horizontal scaling, stroke width, and color.
For legal reasons, you must have purchased a font and have it installed on your system to revise text using that font.

You can add or insert new text into a PDF using any of the fonts installed on the system.
Select Tools > Edit PDF > Add Text .
For vertical text, right-click the text box, and choose Make Text Direction Vertical .
The Add text tool intelligently detects the following text properties of text close to the point of click:
- Font name, size, and color
- Character, paragraph, and line spacing
- Horizontal scaling
These text properties are automatically applied to the text that you add at the point of click.
You can change the text properties using the options under Format in the right pane.
To move the text box, place the pointer over the line of the bounding box (avoid the selection handles). When the cursor changes to Move pointer , drag the box to the new location. To maintain alignment with the other list items, press Shift as you drag.
You can move or rotate text boxes on a page. The Edit Text & Images tool outlines each text box, so it is clear what text is affected. Edits are confined to the page. You cannot drag a text block to another page, or move or rotate individual characters or words within a text box. However, you can copy text boxes and paste them on another page.
Resizing a text box causes the text to reflow within the new text box boundaries. It does not change the size of the text. As with other text edits, resizing is limited to the current page. Text does not flow to the next page.
Select Tools > Edit PDF > Edit .
Adding text to a SharePoint site page using Power Automate (aka. Microsoft Flow) can be a great way to automate a manual process, like bulk importing data, or if you want a consistent site page design.
I had a scenario where a user who had 500+ rows of data in Excel and each row needed to be a site page with columns of data needing to be arranged in specific places on the SharePoint page for consistent user experience. Carrying out a task like this manually is not something I’d like to think about.
For this solution, you can use Microsoft Forms, SharePoint Lists, Excel, basically anything that can connect to and be read by Power Automate (Microsoft Flow). I am going to use a SharePoint List in my example.
The process is simple.
- Create a list.
- Create a page template.
- Create a flow to take items from the list and create a page based off the page template with the list column data inserted into the page.
Step 1: Create the List
Create a SharePoint list and add columns. We’ll get flow to read these columns later.
Step2: Create the Template
Now a page template needs creating. Create a new page in your SharePoint site and modify it how you want it to look.
In the example below, I have 3 text web parts that I am using for Headings, these will not change. I also have 3 text web parts where the list column data will be automatically inserted into. These are marked with [**PLACEHOLDER**] for easy identification later.
Step 3: Find the SavePage Url
When you edit a SharePoint page and click to publish it (or save it as draft) a request is sent in the background. This request is actually the body of the SharePoint page being transmitted to the server. We need to get this as we need to replace the [**PLACEHOLDER**] text with dynamic content in Flow before we publish our new pages.
- Go to the template page you created
- Press F12 to bring up developer tool
- Click on the network tab
- Click to edit the page and publish it straight after
- A save page action will appear
- Click on save page.
- Ensure Headers are selected
- Find ‘request payload’
- Click view source to copy this text
Tip: ensure you click show more at the bottom of the request payload text before copying to get the full text.
Viewing the text in Visual studio code it’s easy to find the placeholder text that we’ll replace later with dynamic content in Microsoft Flow.
Step 4: Create the Flow
Create an automated flow that is triggered when an item is created in a SharePoint list.
The first step is to copy the site page template, this can be done using ‘Send HTTP request to SharePoint’.
The CopyTo REST endpoint will copy the page.
I am using the title of the list item to be the title of my new page using dynamic content in the URI field.
The ID of the new page that was just copied is needed so we can check the page out, update it with the content from the list, then check it back in.
To get the ID use ‘Get file metadata’ Flow action. The file identifier needs to be manually typed. The / needs to be encoded for Flow to recognise the URL a forward slash “/” = %2f
Now we have the ID we are going to get check the page out using another ‘Send HTTP request to SharePoint’ flow action.
Using the ‘Itemid’ from the Get file metadata action the URL
Now the page is checked out, it is time to save the page with the SharePoint list data using the request header that was copied earlier.
If a SharePoint column is a multiline text field, there may be line breaks in the text, JSON does not handle line breaks so we must use an expression to convert any line breaks in the text to , (which is a line break in HTML format so JSON understands it). If you don’t do this, the flow will break if there are any line breaks in multiline text column.
For each SharePoint list column that is a multiline text column compose actions need creating with the following expression.
uriComponentToString(replace(uriComponent(triggerBody()?[‘Features’]), ‘%0A’, ‘’))
uriComponentToString(replace(uriComponent(triggerBody()?[‘Potentialusercases’]), ‘%0A’, ‘’))
By creating a third HTTP request to SharePoint, we can save the page as a draft using the following endpoint.
This is the part where we add the response body that we got earlier to the body of the HTTP request.
Paste the response into the body. Find and replace the static placeholder text to dynamic content of your list items.
Each placeholder will be inside a
HTML element. Looking at the JSON can come across as slightly daunting if it is the first time you have seen it however there is a pattern to it.
First change the title of the page, or it is always going to be “Template”
Now change the text fields to the dynamic content.
Finally, the page needs to be published so users can view it. You don’t have to add this step if you want to review the page manually before publishing or even place an approval stage in before this step.
Let’s test. Save the flow and now add an entry to the SharePoint list:
By Ashraf – May 10, 2011 – 27 comments Email article | Print article
Many people have asked me “Ashraf, how do you make the link say what you want when you post those comments?”. It is a question that has been asked of me over and over. Therefore, I have decided to write up this simple guide which contain information on how you can use very basic HTML code to enable you to do all the formatting I do when posting a comment on a website. All the HTML code mentioned here will work anywhere HTML is accepted, so it does not have to be just when writing comments on websites.
This is not an all inclusive list and I will continue to update/add more code as I think of it or if someone suggests it. Keep in mind that some websites may have certain HTML code disabled so not all HTML code will work on all websites. But generally the following code will work in comment sections for most websites, including this website and giveawayoftheday.com.
Before we get to the list, know that I have color coded all the HTML code in the following list to appear in red so that it will stand out. You do not have to type in actual red text when you want to use any of the codes.
Make your link appear as words instead of the actual URL (i.e. hyperlink)
- Type in the HTML code [INSERT TEXT HERE] .
- Replace [INSERT URL HERE] with the URL you desire to link to.
- Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE] with the text you wish to be linked.
Typing in the HTML code Ashraf is cool. will result in Ashraf is cool.
Make your text bold
- Type in the HTML code [INSERT TEXT HERE] .
- Replaced [INSERT TEXT HERE] with the text you want to appear as bold.
Typing in the HTML code PoliticallyMotivated.net. will result in PoliticallyMotivated.net.
Make your text italic
- Type in the HTML code [INSERT TEXT HERE] .
- Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE] with the text you want to appear italicized.
Typing in the HTML code Welcome back. will result in Welcome back.
Underline your text
- Type in the HTML code [INSERT TEXT HERE] .
- Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE] with the text you want underlined.
Typing in the HTML code Hello there. will result in Hello there.
Cross out your text
- Type in the HTML code
[INSERT TEXT HERE].
- Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE] with the text you want crossed out.
Typing in the HTML code
Ashraf sucks.will result in Ashraf sucks.
Make a list of bullet statements
- Type in the HTML code
- [INSERT TEXT HERE]
- Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE] with the text that you want to bullet.
- If you want more then one bullet point, you need a
- [INSERT TEXT HERE]
for every bullet statement. Place each code for a bullet one after another (you don’t have to list it like I do – all the code in one line will work fine):
- [INSERT TEXT HERE1]
- [INSERT TEXT HERE2]
- [INSERT TEXT HERE3]
Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE1] with the text you want to appear in the first bullet, [INSERT TEXT HERE2] with the text you want to appear in the second bullet and so on. You can have as many bullets as you want.
Make a list of numbered statements
- Type in the HTML code
- [INSERT TEXT HERE]
- Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE] with the text that you want numbered.
- If you want more then one numbered sentence, you need a
- [INSERT TEXT HERE]
- [INSERT TEXT HERE]
for every numbered statement. The numbering keeps increasing by one for every
that you have. Place each code for a numbered statement right after another (you don’t have to list it like I do – all the code in one line will work fine):
- [INSERT TEXT HERE1]
- [INSERT TEXT HERE2]
- [INSERT TEXT HERE3]
Replace [INSERT TEXT HERE1] with the text you want to appear in the first numbered statement, [INSERT TEXT HERE2] with the text you want to appear in the second numbered statement and so on. You can have as many numbered statements as you want.
Lastly, know that you don’t have to pick and chose one HTML tag per text. You can mix and match all the HTML tags and use more then one HTML tag for one text. For example, the HTML code:
This page contains instructions on how to change a font and its color on a web page. With the introduction of HTML5, the proper way to configure web page fonts is to use Cascading Style Sheets. The old method, of using an inline style attribute or font tag, is deprecated, and should no longer be used.
Although the deprecated methods may still render correctly in modern Internet browsers, they are no longer guaranteed to do so. To create web pages that display correctly for the maximum number of users, use the CSS methods described on this page.
The methods for changing font attributes on this page work for text contained in most HTML tags, including
, and . These methods also work for text in a table, using the
Using CSS for a single application
If you plan on changing the font face and its color for one word, sentence, or paragraph on a web page, configure its attributes in the element tag. Using the style attribute, you may specify the font face and color with font-family, color, and the font size with font-size, as shown in the example below.
This text has the Courier font, is Blue, and 20px in size.
Using CSS for one or more pages
Custom font for one page
In the head portion of your web page, you may insert code between the
tabs to change the appearance of your text in various elements. The next blue box contains example code that, once called, would change your font face to Courier and color it red. As you can see, we have defined the class name as “custom.”
Once defined, this styling can be applied to most elements in your page by attaching the class “custom” to them. The following box shows two lines of code and their respective results.
This whole sentence is red and Courier.
Only the word test is red and Courier.
Custom font for many pages
Importing an external CSS file can be very beneficial in that it allows users to change rules for multiple pages at the same time. The following section shows an example for creating a basic CSS file that changes the font and it’s color for most elements. This file may be loaded into more than one web page, even an entire site.
Using any basic text editor, saving the following text as a .css file will prepare it for import.
Once the preceding text is placed into a .css file (we have named ours basic.css), you can link to it from any other page using a line similar to the following example.
Users may change the attributes of elements on a page by changing the code in the imported .css file.
Using the font tag
Although deprecated, the HTML tag can still be used and may be necessary to be used with some online services. When using the FONT tag, you must include the face attribute, which describes the font to be used. In the example below, we are using the Courier font and the hexadecimal color code #005CB9, which is a dark blue.

What can I edit using In-Browser Editing?
In-Browser Editing allows you to edit text content and replace all images, except the following items:
Although text content is editable, the formatting of that text cannot be changed. Images can only be replaced, not added or removed.
Enable In-Browser editing in Adobe Muse
Before you begin, ensure that your site has In-Browser Editing enabled in the Site Properties window.
Click FIle > Site Properties. Click the Advanced tab and ensure that the Enable In-Browser Editing option is enabled.
Upload your site to an FTP Host.
Use the built-in Upload to FTP Host feature in Adobe Muse by choosing File > Upload to FTP Host . For instructions, see Uploading to FTP Host.
Save your .muse file after uploading to FTP to ensure that your site can later be synced with any changes made using In-Browser Editing.
Sign in to In-Browser Editing
The following section lists the steps that you can follow to update an Adobe Muse site using In-Browser Editing.
Read on to know how you can edit the content of an Adobe Muse website using In-Browser Editing.
Visit https://inbrowserediting.adobe.com and enter the domain name (URL) of the site that you want to edit.
It is recommended that you access the In-Browser Editing site via HTTPS protocol only (and not HTTP). This ensures that you provide credentials, log in, and use In-Browser Editing to modify your websites through a secured connection.
Login using your hosting credentials.
Once you’re signed in, you’ll see the site’s home page as well as the In-Browser Editing navigation bar on top.
Edit text content and images using In-Browser Editing
You can directly edit text on the browser using In-Browser Editing. You can also edit images, images within text, and hyperinks in addition to text.
Read on to know how to quickly edit the content of an Adobe Muse website.
You can easily edit text right on the browser using In-Browser Editing. After you log in to In-Browser Editing, simply select the text that you want to delete, and start typing your new text.
When you’re done, you can immediately see how your changes appear on the same browser. If your site is responsive, preview the changes at all the breakpoints. If your site was created using alternate layouts, preview the change for each of the devices.
Edit images and images within text
Click the image that you want to edit, or click the text frame and then the image within that you want to edit.
Click Edit Image.
From the pop-up box that opens, choose an existing file that is associated with your site. Else, you can upload an image from your computer by click Upload Photo.
This dialog also gives you the option to add or edit tooltip text associated with the image.
Click after selecting your photo.
The old image is replaced with the image that you chose.
When you replace an image, the new image that you select will be sized to fit the area that the previous image took up. If the new image has a different aspect ratio than the original image, it will not fill the entire area of the previous image. This may affect the visual layout of your page. For this reason, it is recommended that you only replace an existing image with another image of the same dimensions or a larger image with the same width and height ratio.
If your site resolution is set to HiDPI, and the replacement image holds enough data to be 2x, then In-Browser Editing will save both 1x and 2x versions of the image to display on HiDPI screens. To learn more about creating assets for HiDPI visit Creating HiDPI Websites in Muse.
Insert and edit hyperlinks in your Adobe Muse site
You can edit several kinds of hyperlinks on a web page, including external links, mail-tos, links to other pages of the website, downloadable files, and more. Read on to know more about editing hyperlinks using In-Browser Editing.
Insert links using In-Browser Editing
You can add or insert hyperlinks using the Add Link button in In-Browser Editing. Follow this procedure to insert as well as update links for your Adobe Muse site.

The timeline can be customized in several ways. This article describes how to customize the timeline in the following ways:
Change the fonts and colors
You can change the font face, size, format, and color for the text used on the timeline. You can also change the fill colors used for the timeline bars, diamonds, and background.
To change the fonts and colors used on the timeline:
Click once on the timeline to select it.
To change the font used on a timeline bar or diamond, click the bar or diamond, and then, on the Timeline tab, in the Font group, change the font face, size, format, and color.
Tip: When you click a bar or diamond on the timeline, a box appears with information about that task. If this box is in the way when you’re ready to format a different bar or diamond, simply click the X in the top right corner of the box to close it.
To change the color used to fill in a bar or diamond, click the bar or diamond, and then, on the Timeline tab, in the Font group, click Highlight Color, and choose a color.
Note: The color used to fill a diamond is also used for the line drawn between the diamond and the task name.
To change the color used to fill in the background of the timeline, click in a space in the timeline that isn’t filled by a bar or diamond, and then, on the Timeline tab, in the Font group, click Highlight Color, and choose a color.
Change how dates are displayed
By default, the timeline includes task dates, a marker indicating the current date, and dates across the top to mark the timescale. However, you can also include the overall project start and finish dates, or choose to hide any of the default date indicators. You can also choose the format for task start dates and due dates. To choose how you want to include dates on the timeline:
Click once on the timeline to select it.
On the Timeline tab, in the Show/Hide group, select the check box next to each type of date that you want to include on the timeline:
Task Dates Select the Task Dates check box to display the start date and due date for each task within the task’s bar or next to the task’s diamond.
Today Select the Today check box to display an indicator on the timeline for the current date.
Start & Finish Select the Start & Finish check box to display a start date at the beginning of the timeline and a finish date at the end of the timeline. These dates are taken from the earliest task start date, and the latest task due date.
Timescale Select the Timescale check box to display markers across the top of the timeline at dated intervals.
To choose the format to use for dates within task bars or next to task diamonds, on the Timeline tab, in the Show/Hide group, click Date Format, and select the format you want to use.
Change how tasks appear
Tasks without a start date, or tasks that have a start date but no due date, always appear as diamonds on the timeline. A task with a start date and a due date, however, can appear as a bar on the timeline, or you can choose to display it as a callout above the timeline. This can be particularly useful if you have chosen to indent tasks in your task list as a way to communicate different phases of a project, or larger tasks that have several subtasks. For example, let’s say you have a task list like this:
You might choose to display phases as callouts on the timeline, and tasks as bars on the timeline.
To display a task as a callout on the timeline, click once on the task bar, and then, on the Timeline tab, in the Current Selection group, click Display as Callout. If you decide you would rather return the callout to the timeline as a bar, click once on the callout text, and then, on the Timeline tab, in the Current Selection group, click Display as Bar. You can also remove tasks from the timeline entirely, without removing them from the task list. This can be helpful if you need to simplify the timeline, or if you would prefer that some tasks didn’t show up in the Project Summary web part. There are two ways to remove a task from the timeline:
Click once on the bar, diamond, or callout text, and then, on the box that appears, click Remove from Timeline.
Click once on the bar, diamond, or callout text, and then, on the Timeline tab, in the Current Selection group, click Remove from Timeline.
Lock the timeline width
After you have added tasks to the timeline and arranged them in a way that you feel accurately represents the project, you can lock the timeline width so that others who view the timeline see the timeline for your project in the way you have intended. If you do not lock the timeline width, the width will vary based on the size of the window being used to view the timeline. To lock the timeline width, arrange the timeline to accurately represent your project, and then, on the Timeline tab, in the Actions group, click Lock Timeline Width. Now, when someone else views your timeline, it will remain at the width that you have set, regardless of the viewer’s window size.
Set timeline date ranges
Depending on the size or complexity of a project, you might find it helpful to adjust the date range by increasing or decreasing the range of dates that the timeline displays. You can accomplish this in Project Online or Project Server 2016 by customizing the date range of the timeline.
On the Quick Launch, click Projects.
Click anywhere on the timeline to open the Timeline tab, then in the Show/Hide group click Set Date Range.
On the Set Timeline Dates box, select Set custom dates, fill in your desired start and finish dates, and then click OK.
I recently received an email from a visitor asking me how she could centre (“center” in US English) some text in the middle of a box. This article answers that question, along with related ones that I have been asked over the years about aligning text in the centre of a page.
Note that this article only deals with the specific query mentioned above. It does not deal with how to centre a block (eg a box) on your page without centring (“centering”) the text inside. Nor does it address how to centre an image. Please read the articles linked to in the previous two sentences for those situations.
The CSS for Aligning Text
Aligning text is very straightforward, since CSS (“What is CSS?”) provides the text-align property specifically for this.
For example, the following CSS rule put all headers using the

Almost every website on the internet is written using HTML.
If you’d want to automatically extract data from a website, you would have to deal with a bunch of HTML code.
A web scraper can help you extract data from any site and also pull any specific HTML attributes such as class and title tags.
Using a Web Scraper for HTML Scraping
One specific feature that will help us with this project, is ParseHub’s ability to also pull HTML code and attributes from a website rather than just the text on the page.
Also, for this example, we will scrape the first page of Amazon results for the term “smartphone”.
Setting up a Web Scraping Project
First, you will have to download and install ParseHub for free. Once open, click on New Project and submit the URL we will be scraping.
ParseHub will now render the page and you will be able to select the data you’d like to extract.
Selecting and Extracting Data
Now that we have selected some data to extract, we will be able to pull additional data from the HTML code in our selection.
Extracting HTML Data
Once you’ve selected some data to extract, you can now select each extraction on the left sidebar. In our example, we have two extractions: one for the product name and one for the listing URL.
You can now select the extractions and use the dropdown to edit them and extract specific HTML elements.
By default, the extraction will first extract the text that has been selected.
Next, we can also extract the href Attribute for our selection (URL).
Extraction: URL (href Attribute)
The Full HTML extraction will extract the entire HTML code from your selection, this can be especially helpful when selecting entire DIVs on the page.
Extraction: Full HTML
The Inner HTML extraction will extract any content found within the HTML tags of the selection you’ve made.
Extraction: Inner HTML
In many cases, your selection will have HTML attributes such as class, ID or title.
ParseHub will automatically identify these attributes and allow you to extract the data enclosed within them.
In this example selection we have made, ParseHub has picked up the class attribute. We can now select it from the dropdown to extract that data specifically.
Extraction: class Attribute
Building and Running your Scrape
What we have setup today is a very simple scraping project, as it is only extracting the name and URL for each product in one page.

We like books. But one thing that you can’t do on paper is link to another book. On that level at least, electronic media has a distinct advantage. And with Microsoft Word, it’s easy to add a hyperlink in a document.
But how does this work? In this post, we look at how to add a link in Microsoft Word, as well as how to edit and remove hyperlinks in a document.
How to Embed a Hyperlink in a Document
Whether you’re writing website copy, where hyperlinks enable navigation, or simply adding links to useful internet resources in a document, Microsoft Word makes it simple. For instance, if you type a web address and hit space or return, MS Word will automatically format it as a link.
However, most of the time, you’ll want to embed a link in the text. To do this:
Link options in the contextual menu.
The highlighted text will then become a hyperlink.
To test the link, hold CTRL and left click (or right click and select Open Hyperlink). This will open the destination in your default web browser.
You can use this same process to link to another file on your computer.
To link to a file, simply select it via the Insert Hyperlink menu and click OK. Keep in mind, though, that this link will only work on your computer/network, since this is where the destination file is stored.
One of the good things about blogging is I’m always learning new things. When I run into a problem I research ways to solve the problem.
Often, if I have an idea of something I’d like to try, I look around and figure out how to do it. Even though my husband is a web guy and probably knows most of the answers, I do not like to bother him.
Unfortunately and fortunately, he is busy doing his own work for clients at MBSquared. Today’s problem was figuring out how to change hyperlinks to text showing the URL address in Excel. I wanted to convert a column with hyperlinks to only display the links. I was searching for a way to pull out hyperlinked text from code and have only the URLs displayed. Does that make sense?
How to Change Hyperlinks to Text Showing the URL Address in Excel
Here’s what I was trying to do. I use a Tailwind to schedule my pins. I love it, by the way. Anyway, I wanted to pull out the most popular pins and create a spreadsheet with links (URLs displayed) to those pins.
My spreadsheet looked like this, but in order to repin those Pinterest pins in Tailwind, I need the actual URLs. Yes, I could go one-by-one and extract the URL from each hyperlink (right-click – edit hyperlink – copy URL), but that would be very time-consuming. I wanted Excel to convert the hyperlink to url.
Luckily, I found a way to convert my column with hyperlinks to display the links in URL form. Actually, even better, this will extract a URL from a hyperlink and display it in the column beside it. This little macro code will do all of the tedious work for you and convert every single hyperlink to URL text at the same time! It lets excel show hyperlink url easily.
Tips for Spreadsheets and Excel – Extract Link From Cell
Directions on How to Change Hyperlinks to Text Showing the URL
First, once your column is selected, in your Excel workbook, go to Tools – Macro – Visual Basic Editor.
Next, once you are in the Visual Basic Editor, go to Insert – Module.
Then, copy this text into the editor:
Finally, run the program by pressing F5 on your keyboard. Now, you have a separate column that converted your hyperlinks into URL addresses.
Yay! You successfully Changed Hyperlinks to Text Showing the URL Address in Excel!

Your homepage is the first thing people see when they visit your website, so you’ll want to ensure you make a good first impression!
By default, WordPress uses your most recent blogs as your homepage. However, even if blogging is a big part of your website, there are many scenarios where a blog isn’t the best possible introduction to your site.
Imagine you’re building a website to promote your business. Would you prefer potential customers to see a homepage packed with customer testimonials, a slideshow of your products and services, and all the awards you’ve won, or a list of your most recent blog posts?
In this quick tip, I’ll show you how to make the best possible first impression, by replacing WordPress’s default blog with a specially designed homepage.
Creating Your WordPress Homepage
While blogs display your latest posts, WordPress pages are not displayed in chronological order. Newer pages will not displace older pages.
When you publish a page, it remains in that state until you explicitly edit it, which is why WordPress pages are sometimes referred to as static pages. Since pages are static, they’re ideal for displaying evergreen content, such as your website’s e-commerce store, contact page, terms and services—or your homepage.
If you want to replace your blog with a static homepage, then you’ll need to create at least one page. If you don’t already have a page that you want to use as your homepage, then it’s time to create one:
You’ll now be taken to a screen where you can create your homepage by adding content such as images, text, and video. As you build your new homepage, you can check how this page will appear to visitors by clicking the Preview button.
As you continue to work on your homepage, don’t forget to save your changes by clicking Save Draft. Note that as long as your homepage is in a draft state, it won’t be visible to anyone but you, so you can hit Save as many times as you want without having to worry about publishing your unfinished work.
Before you publish your homepage, you may want to change its URL. By default, WordPress generates a URL automatically based on your website’s domain name and the page’s Title. To change this automatically generated address, find the URL towards the top of the screen, click its accompanying Edit button, enter a new URL, and then click OK.
When you’re happy with your new homepage, make it live by clicking the Publish button.
You’re now ready to set this page as your homepage.
Goodbye Blog: Switching to a Static Homepage
Let’s make this new page the first thing visitors see when they visit your website:
The preview window should now update to display the page you just selected. If you’re happy with your new homepage, then click the blue Publish button.
Try reloading your website; it should now display an entirely new homepage!
Make Sure Visitors Can Navigate Your Site!
Your blog may no longer be the first thing visitors see, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you want to prevent them from accessing your blog.
As soon as your website spans multiple webpages, you’ll need to give visitors an easy way to navigate between these pages, and one popular option is a menu.
There are lots of different ways that you can tweak and perfect WordPress’s default menus, but in this section we’ll be creating a simple menu that runs along the top of your website:
Click Add to Menu, and all of the selected items will be added to the Menu structure section. Your menu items will be displayed in the order they appear in Menu structure.
You can change where an item appears in your menu, by grabbing it in Menu structure and then dropping it into a new location.
When you’re happy with your setup, click Save Menu.
To place this menu on your website, click the Manage Locations tab. Assuming that you want this menu to appear across your entire website, open the Top Menu dropdown and select the menu that you just created.
Click Save Changes to add your new menu to your website.
Now, if you open any webpage, it’ll feature a handy menu containing links to all the different sections of your website.
In this article, I showed you how to create a static page and then set it as your website’s homepage. To make sure every page, post, and blog is accessible from your new homepage, we also created a custom navigation menu that makes it easy for visitors to reach every part of your website.

Everyone knows how to copy text — simply highlight the subject with your cursor and do CTRL +C. Simple, Right? But what if you want to copy text from where it’s not allowed? Like a right-click disable website, a write-protected PDF, a Windows error dialog box or the comments from YouTube’s official Android app.
The usual way to copy unselectable text is by using an OCR reader. Simply take a screenshot of the area containing text and run it through any good OCR software as Google keep. But, this takes time and is definitely not an ideal solution.
So what other options do we have?
Well, thankfully, there are tools to copy any text even if it’s unselectable. So, let’s check out the best method in every platform.
#1 Copy Text from Right-Click Disabled Website (Web)
But even if this doesn’t work, you can look at the source code of that website or try the Google cache version of that site, by appending cache:// at the beginning of its URL. Although, this method only works for blogs that are indexed by Google.
For instance — if the original URL is
then the final URL will become
And the final resort is to download the web page to your local machine or press, CTRL + P to open the print preview and there you’ll see save as PDF option. Use that.
#2 Copy Unselectable Text from Windows
Say you want to copy text from an error dialogue box. Well, this is more simple than you think it’s, simply clicks on the dialogue box and do CTRL +C and the entire error message will get copied to your clipboard.
But what if, you want to copy text from other programs like registry editor or control panel, etc? Well in such cases, you can use Textify. It’s a simple, lightweight app (only 76 KB) and does what it say.
Simply run the Textify.exe, click on any window from which you want to grab the text. And then Textify will magically make the system text selectable. (see video demo)
#3 Copy Unselectable Text from Mac
This is relatively difficult in Mac since there is no lightweight app to do it. But if you have XCode installed (a tool to develop apps for Apple ecosystem) then it’s pretty easy to copy text from any Mac app.
Simply open the window from where you want to copy text, and then turn on Accessibility Inspector. You can find it under Developer > Application > Utilities > Accessibility tools.
But again, installing heavy apps like Xcode just for extracting text is not feasible. You are better off with OCR readers. And that’s why, I haven’t tested this method personally, so for details check this answer on StackExchange.
#4 Copy Unselectable Text from Android
Being a YouTuber, I often have to copy comments from YouTube’s Android app or let say you want to copy text from Facebook or Instagram mobile app. Overall most native apps don’t give you options to select text from it.
Well, with apps like Universal Copy, you can copy text from any app, even if there is no option to highlight it. Simply install the app, next go to any app from which you want to copy the text, pull down the notification drawer, and select Activate Universal Copy mode. Now, tap on text, and it’ll be copied to your clipboard.
If you have Android marshmallow then you can also use Google Now on tap to copy text from any app that does not let you copy text from it or even a text from an image.
You can also take a screenshot of that page and use Google keep to extract text from the images.
Anything that you can see on the screen — text, images, or video can be easily copied or downloaded to your computer. Either by using an OCR reader or by right software.
To copy paste text without any formatting do CTRL + SHIFT + V instead of CTRL + V.
