This may sound dumb, but I will ask anyhow... I used to use the View/Source to read how some of the html was used on certain pages. For some dumb reason, it won't work anymore. I hit View and then source and nothing.....nada. Anybody know why????

If you are attempting it on these Groundspeak forum pages, you probably won't get anything.

 

I'm not sure, but I believe it is because a server-side scripting language is being used.

 

I'd love to be corrected, though, if I am wrong.

"Did you try scrolling down the view source window?"

Redwoodred, I think it is my computer and nothing else because I emailed a geocaching buddy and they are having no problems with this function. I am not using this in Groundspeak, but on geocache pages that have html codes that I am learning.

When the source code pops up in the notepad window ... use the scroll bar to go down the page ... there is a blank area at the top of the page before you get to the code.

That's funny!

I didn't look either!

I've taken classes in ASP programming and other server-side scripting languages, and I am supposed to look for that blank spot...

I must be tired.

 

Where the source page is blank is where the server-side code resides on the web host's server. I like how it works and can't be ripped off... don't get me wrong. I love looking at the source code to see how others put their pages together, and I don't mind when people look at mine. For this reason I am pretty anal about the appearance of my code and will spend hours cleaning up slop left by another programmer to a site I'm working on.

 

It's just me.

That is the problem that I am having Hawkeye....no notepad window or blank space or anything for that matter. It used to just pop right up and your right, I could scroll through it. Now nothing pops up...it just acts like I never hit the view/source button. I can scroll through the entire page, but there is no notepad with the codes on it anymore. sigh..... icon_frown.gif

James, I was looking for computer help, not a smart remark. I am trying to learn and this was an option that was given to me by a local geocacher. My intention is to learn, not steal anyones ideas! icon_rolleyes.gif

That is strange ... are you using MSIE or another browser?
