Saving HTML Edits Using Firebug

  • I’m trying to edit my HTML code using Firebug, but can’t figure out how to save it once it’s changed. There’s no master HTML file in the theme directory for me to open and edit in Dreamweaver, so I’m kind of stuck when it comes to that… thoughts? Thanks!

    You can’t save edited CSS from Firebug. You have to make the changes in the stylesheet itself.

    Firebug lets you preview changes. You should in your WordPress folder in Dreamweaver navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and there you’ll find your theme files. Inside the folder of the theme you are using, look for style.css. Edit and upload your css changes in this file.

    Note, you *can* set up Dreamweaver to use the preview and WYSIWYG editor but it’s *really* hard. Just preview changes in Firebug, edit the css and upload it, rinse and repeat.

    Yeah, I got the editing of the CSS down, but I’m wanting to edit the HTML. For example: I want to go in and change the name of the blog at the top of the page, in the header. I can’t find where in the code to do this unless I’m in Firebug? There is no “master” HTML file for the page in the wp-content/themes directory. I can’t even find it in the admin section of the WordPress site (where you manage/edit your themes). Is this because I’m working with the free version of the theme? I wonder if I NEED to purchase the full PRO version of the theme to have complete control over these types of things. Seems like I should be able to go in and edit the name of the page though, pretty basic stuff. I’m missing something… Thanks!

    Go to Appearance/Editor in your admin panel and look in the Header template.

    Yep, that’s the first place I went and nothing… did a find and replace search for the page title and it found nothing. I’m getting the feeling that I need to purchase the full version of the theme in order to have complete control over all coding. Again, seems strange that I couldn’t change something so simple in the coding. I’m using the Titan theme from Theme Foundry.

    For example: I want to go in and change the name of the blog at the top of the page, in the header

    Look in header.php for something like:

    <title><?php wp_title('&laquo;', true, 'right'); ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>

    Yep, I found it and still no dice. Kind of frustrating at this point. I really appreciate your help on this, but I think I may need to turn to Theme Foundry Support for an answer. Doesn’t seem like it should be this difficult to go in and modify the name of my blog! I’m looking for code more like this:

    name

    And want to change the “name” portion of that line… can’t find anything like that anywhere in any of the files that come with my WordPress theme.

    Thanks again. Any last suggestions?

    Sorry that line of code didn’t translate in my previous post:

    name

    It would be easier to help you if we could see your blog, knew what theme your were using, and knew exactly what you wanted to change.

    Titan Theme (free version, not complete purchased full version)

    I want to change the wording for the header and subhead:
    eurie blog
    what’s new with eurie

    I established this wording in the admin section of another theme, but when I activated Titan theme it kept my information, but I lost the ability to edit that type of information. It seems some themes are more flexible than others in allowing customization ?? Thanks…

    Your theme is pulling those values from the “Blog Title” and “Tagline” fields at Settings/General in your admin panel.

    Ahhh, gotcha. Thanks for the help!

    One last question. What if I wanted to change the appearance of that text. See how it’s underlined and from a particular font family? What if I wanted it to not underline or change appearance on a hover over? This is where I am still stuck, not being able to go in and edit that HTML <h1 id=”title”>

    ??? Thanks again for directing me to the correct admin panel…

    how can i use rinse in firebug? Thank you 🙂

    @ szymanski …. I’m facing the same issue
    did you found any solution of this problem????
    I’m waiting for your kind reply
