    Hey all.
    Out of boredom, I am gonna be nice and post a how-to video on how to freely change/move/edit stuff on ANY website! [​IMG]
    Don't get your hopes up, the changes only show on your PC not anyone else's.
    OK, soo... On YouTube, ever seen these videos that are like "OMG I HACKED [SomeoneFamous'sNameGoesHere], RATE 5 STAR AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE PASS"
    You know, the videos that look like this:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    (Lol no worries I didn't hack anyone, the trick is you use this editing method to change the text that's on the website so I simply replaced my YouTube username with RayWilliamJohnson).

    OK before I begin with the guide, let me just say that I did not create this code. I don't know who created it but the guy's a genius.

    And one more thing to say: The edits you put only stay as long as you're on that page. When you visit a different page, it goes. And if you go back to that page, they're not gonna come back unless you save them. (A guide on how to save the changes is available later in the thread just keep reading.)

    OK, first thing to do. Go on a page that you have an account on, like YouTube.
    In a new tab (I assume all the browsers we use these days support tabs duh xD ), go to this site. (not created by me)
    Select that code in blue and copy it.
    Now go back the the first page I mentioned in step one which in my case, is YouTube.
    Paste that code you copied on to the address bar of the website. (YouTube's the website in my case. 3rd time I mention or something xP )
    Now on most browsers, any links on that page are unclickable. Highlight any block of text, and erase it, add to it, change it, or do whatever you want lol.
    What I did is that I replaced my username on YouTube with RayWilliamJohnson. (I know I explained it once before, but to be clearer this time.)
    For those who didn't understand how to do it, I'll be clearer.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Oh yeah and to save your changes, check that site where you got the blue code, it's written at the bottom. But to save you need firefox though. (Assuming most of you have it.)

    So yeah um, enjoy!

    A little something exta:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Lol ^^ it looks kind of fake [​IMG] It's just a joke. Hope it doesn't violate the forum rules or anything hehe.
    Cause in that case, I'll just take it off.

    So everyone, have fun in screwing up any website you want! ;D

    It's easier to just use Firebug, a Firefox add-on.

    Or edit the page source.

    This makes it easy for newbies though, so it is perfect.

    Best thing is to edit a friend's status into something retarded, then take a screenshot of it, and upload it on facebook. See his/her reaction lol xP

    Chrome has the ability to change pages built-in by default. Though it can't save pages.

    Copy this into your addy bar to pwn GBAtemp (or any other website)

    Edit: I guess gbatemp doesnt like it when you copy javascript into the forum, so if you want to use this trick be sure to erase the space in the word "java script" when entering it into the address bar.

    No, I meant after you edit them you save them so they would be the same when you visit again (instead of returning to default).
