Right so my school has a webpage where I can choose my GCSE options for next year.

For some reason my school didn't include an "edit" option. So, once you've gotten your options on, they're unchangeable unless I contact the ICT teacher in my school, and he'll change my options for me.

I don't wanna ask him to do it for me, so..

I chose my options, but I changed my mind about one of them. I'm on Google Chrome, and I right-clicked on the page and hit 'View Page Source'.

I dug through all that HTML and managed to find out what I need to change to fix my GCSE options, but the problem is, I don't know how to save it.

What I did is I saved the html of the page and edited it in notepad and changed my options, tested it out, and it worked.

Great but how do I edited the actual page source, and not a copy that I pasted into notepad?

Thanks.

Editing the page source has no effect. It will change for you yeah, but if you refresh it'll load the old version again.
Someone has to edit it on server side, or provide you an edit form.

You don't. The page source is read-only. One of the things I learned when I was really young and wanted to "hack" websites... "lol page source is here, let's delete it and save it! *1 minute later* Oh... :\"

Unfortunately you're gonna have to contact the ICT teacher.

also there are some things you (as user) can't see behing which exists in the actual code. This code is processed by server, sent "prepared" to user, but the source code isn't there.
