For an april fools.

How easy is it to take a webpage and change the words/pictures etc?
Is there a site that lets you do this?

Thanks

You can use front page or dreamweaver they are programmes where you can pretty much drag and drop items in. However you are cutting it pretty fine for a convincing site/webpage bearing in mind it's tomorrow.

You'll need:

1. A domain name
2. Some server space
3. Some HTML knowledge

If none of the above are available, your plans may well be scuppered.

Technically, you don't need hosting or a domain. Provided you're using one machine (and not just sending someone a link) a better way to do it would be to install something like wampserver (couple of clicks, 2 minute job) and edit Windows hosts file to redirect the domain of the website you're spoofing to 27.0.0.1 (local machine) You can then copy the source code and create your spoof site in the root www directory wampserver creates. So basically, you can set it so that if someone types [url]www.google.com[/url] for example, they'll actually see your spoofed site, not google. Though regardless of how you do it, spoofing an entire site isn't going to be as simple as copying the source code, it'll most probably use external javascript, images, css, possibly things like includes etc, so you'd have to recreate the entire directory structure or do a lot of editing.

I was hoping to send the link on mate...thanks though :)

Probably not possible in that case, you'd have to send them a link like [url]www.8yg2f8y.tk/2010/april/01[/url] and try and convince them it's just a different way of viewing that website :P

You'd copy, paste, edit the existing 127.0.0.1 "localhost" entry already in the file, so really it isn't :thumbsup:

vengod, there is a site which spoofs the BBC (was this what you wanted to spoof anyway?)

I could manage with the bbc...

Ideally i was hoping to get the local papers website.

Could you link me to that spoof bbc site?

copy and paste this in your address bar and it lets you edit any webpage but of course only you can see it.

javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0

have fun!
