I'm trying to add a menu to one of my hubs by getting the 'reference' of each module - I used to do this by using 'view source' and then scrolling down the HTML to the relevant section.
However, it seems that 'view source' has been turned off for Hubpages (I check on my browser and can do this for other websites).
Is there any way to get this reference without using the 'view source'?
There is no way a web site can block "View Source".
View Source just makes it easier for you to view it, otherwise you would have to dig through temporary internet folders for the right file to view the code.
I can't view source on HP either and I'm also using IE7. I wondered if I might have to log out? Not sure why it happens but it defnitely does.
IE anything = your problem LOL .....IE sucks
Try Firefox or Google Chrome
In Chrome its very easy to "View Source" or even right click on a element "Inspect Element" and go straight to that code in the source.
LOL yep - I have those at home - it's just our 'enterprise' insists on sticking with IE!
Yes that is typical for many companies and you have my heart felt condolences.
IE6 is so bad many webmasters recently held a mock burial for it, hoping it would die for good. If only it was that easy.

Thankfully Google and others are finally dropping support for IE6 and many companies will be forced to finally upgrade.
I didn't even realise there was a way of stopping a browser from viewing source.
I'm in the same boat Simon - I'm use my husbands work laptop at home and I have no choice on browsers, otherwise I'd be using firefox for sure. I tried IE8 and it completely messed up my system, so I uninstalled it and went back to IE7. I can also view source on any other webpage - it's just HP? Odd, but true, lol
I have just updated to ie8 a couple of weeks ago and just clicked on view, source and there it was no problems
I didnt try to copy it though.

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!

Since another thread encouraged us to switch over to the new profile layout, I have checked some of the profiles of Hubbers who have switched. There are two technical problems that I see. It is possible that...

I've read lots of instructional stuff about these, but I've pretty much given up on trying to put them on my hubs because I just don't understand aspects of these tools. What I'd like to know is: Can I survive on...

I've only just noticed, so will have to check all my hubs, but the new, narrower, version on Hubpages is making my tables look daft. The floating portion goes completely over the top of the right hand side.It...
