How to find a web page which has hard coded content I need to alter.

I am not sure "Hard Coded" is the right word.

I have a client using a C5 custom theme built in 2010 (I think) by an unknown person.

I need to change/add the content on the page. I had a hard time finding the page because it was hidden with the system pages in the sitemap.

I also had to give the administrator permission to edit the page.

Once I found and could edit the page the Add To main is on the top of the area I want to edit and the Add to Footer is below (see attached image, HarkinsLoginPage.jpg).

So it is hard coded into some page stored some where, but I cannot find the page anywhere.

The URL is: http://www.harkinsassociates.com/index.php/newsletters/...

When I am logged in to edit the page, the URL is: http://www.harkinsassociates.com/index.php?cID=5&ctask=check-ou...

The site registration page is also built the same way and I cannot find that either. The URL is: http://www.harkinsassociates.com/index.php/register/...

I found a newsletter folder, but it is empty. I have not found a register folder yet.

I looked at every file I could find regarding login, register etc, but no page with this text and form written into the page.

I've looked at the page source and had Chrome inspect the elements.

Normally I can find the file that has the mysterious code in it, but this one has me stumped.

Does anyone out there have a clue where I might look for this? Suggest a tool that will lead me to the page. Maybe I missed something in the view source.

Any help would greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The pages are stored in the database so there is nothing physical you can manually edit.

Did you check the docs for Concrete?

I also posted this on a concrete5 forum.  But after a day with no response, I tried it here.

But tonight an answer was posted that was the correct answer.

There is a folder called single_pages and they were inside there. They were a custom login and register pages.  I have found the text that needs to be added or edited.

I can now edit and post them.

Thank you for responding.
