Editing websites for fun and profit

If you’ve been following the Labour leadership contest, you might have noticed this parody of Tony Blair’s Comment Is Free piece doing the rounds:

You may think it’s photoshopped, but it’s very simple to make something like this, and I’m going to show you how to do it! Start by opening up Google Chrome (you can do this in other browsers but I find Chrome to be the easiest), then go to any site you choose. Find the text you want to change, then right click it and select “Inspect element”.

Step 1

When you click “Inspect element”, you will see some code at the bottom of the screen. Don’t be scared, it’s just HTML, the language patented by Sir Tim Berners of Lee back in 1662. With any luck, the text you want to change will be right in front of you, so just change it and you’re done!

Step 2

Once you know this simple trick, you can have all sorts of fun messing around with all kinds of sites! Have fun!
