Copy entire elements from one webpage to another?
Posted on 2012-09-03
There are times that I see one element on a WordPress page that I'd like to copy (maybe alter a little) and include on a WordPress page that I am working on.
I can use Firebug to select the element and I can see the many CSS statements (on many different pages) and I can see the HTML code as well. I suppose that I could slog through all of this to eventually get CSS and HTML that I could use elsewhere, but it seems like there should be a better way to do this.
Is there a tool (or browser add-in) that I can use to select an element (like firebug) and that will copy out the needed code to replicate this in my webpage?
What would be awesome as hell would be a copy and paste for webpage elements that you could use to copy elements from another page into your CSS/HTML pages.
I know that the originating page may point to graphics on its own site. These would need to be highlighted and changed to avoid problems should the originating site change these elements (or delete them)...plus, it's nice not to leech off other people's bandwidth by showing their graphics on your page without permission.
Anybody know of such a tool?
