How to View the Source Code of a Web Page

You might want to view the source code of a web page, for fun.  If you are learning about websites you might want to look at source code. The source code can show interesting things about a web page. It can reveal how your page looks to the machines.

To find the page source: When you have an open browser click on View on your top menu bar. The option to view the page source is at the bottom of the list, after the Zoom options. Different browsers use slightly different names for the source code.

  • Firefox: View > Page Source
  • Safari:  View > View Source
  • Chrome:  View > Developer > View Source
  • Opera: View > Developer Tools > View Source

Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, and Internet Explorer are Browsers.

    Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

      Not all site designs are going to work well on all screen sizes. Knowing how to fix it would depend on knowing how it is built. In general, if you don’t use design aspects that force the column widths it will shrink onto the phone size. If phone access is really important it is worth considering making pages that are designed to work best on the small screen. I hope this helps.
