Finding "program" file (8 posts)

    I have a problem trying to edit many of my things. Since WordPress is very limited in its user interface to what you can edit or input I have tried finding the source file for some of these things in my folder for theme or on my FTP server (I use WinSCP), and I cannot find what is called the "program" file. I looked through all the files is there specific folder and file name for it that I should be looking for it is also an HTML file. Through using inspect element I found out which parts of the codes I should use and look for, but it presented itself as an HTML file, which I could not even find one and called itself the source file even though through my theme editor OR FTP I couldn't find where to edit or locate the code.

    The 'program' is in the php files. There are no html files. Your content is stored in the database.

    To change how the site looks you can edit your theme (or create a child theme which is often preferable)

    Please link to your site and describe what change you are trying to make if you have a specific change you are unable to make.

    Yes okay so the website would be: http://www.luxser.net and on that in google chrome I used "inspect element" to see the code of the icons on the home page. On the bottom right there are 4 icons with packages, services, etc...the links of these takes you to some random page that I wish to change the coding for the links so the html a href tag but in a php file there are obviously no such things but I thought they would be within an html file...

    This is possibly specified in a widget area, but without access to the theme its impossible to say for sure. Where did you obtain your theme from?

    I bought the theme from monster templates and installed it independently, but everything should work fine, I will check the widgets for now then.

    It is a widget, called "My Advanced Cycle" but cannot find out where to customize the links...

    You need to get support from your theme vendor as it sounds like that widget is part of the theme.
