    Hello all,

    I am having problems trying to permanently edit a website on my local computer. Basically what I am trying to do is make changes to text in a certain website so that they remain even after refreshing the webpage. Obviously only on my computer at home locally.

    I used live website editor extension on google chrome, but the text that I am trying to edit is inline text. This extension doesn't support the editing of inline text.

    Using the latest version of google chrome on windows Vista. Can also use Firefox if there is a plug-in that would work only on firefox.

    Check with the Chrome guys, but I doubt that it is designed for retaining your own modified version locally - they would have to use cookies and massive ones at that, methinks...

    With the html classes i am doing at the moment i learnt about the contentEditable attribute this can be used for editing inline text from a local machine and updating the site
    Not 100% if you can make it password protected or auth only you would have do some research
    Here is a link i found on google.


    good luck :_)

    also look at ajax
