Automatic Inspect Element?

10Fold

New Coder
Hi,

I was wondering whether it is possible to set up code that automatically modifies a website (using inspect element) based on if statements. If so, how would I go about coding this? I'm very new to coding but I'm committed to learn and improve.
Thanks in advance.

Hey Ryan and welcome,

One really key question to this, Is this your site? or someone else?

If this is yours we could easy do some PHP if statements, if its someone elses you cannot edit it for the whole world to see but you could scrape the website then run it through some regex/If comands in PHP or python so you can see the changes.

Hi, it would be on someone else's site and modifications would only be seen by the user. My intention was to covert prices on sites to the hours it would take the user to earn the given amount. Unfortunately, there are already a few examples of this on the chrome web store such as "Time Is Money" (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...pbnomdcjmoepangldchpmjhkeendl?ref=producthunt). Due to the saturated market, I've decided to abandon the project. Still, it was interesting to know how it can be done! Thank you for your help!

no worries, if you do decide to go ahead what i would maybe suggest to make you stand out is to scrape the data, do the changes then get users to login to your site to the see the changes :)
