Tips and Tricks for HTML and Java Script Usage on Websites

Just a short note that i picked up from listening to the new praying medic...

If you want to read a text thats hidden behind a paywall - Q often gives WaPo links, i.e. -, you can go to

https://outline.com/

and paste in the link of the article you want to read.
outline.com will give you the plain text, no pics etc.

----------------------------------------------------------
You can also use the developers console in your browser to identify the blocking elements, then remove them (style="display:none"), a healthy knowledge of javascript goes a long way. You can even force the window to scroll.

CTRL-SHIFT-C in firefox & chrome

Mouse over the sub-window to see it's code + name/id.

thanks for the tip... there is an even easier way (which i always use when i can copy from a site): save the page as html only. when you open it from you desktop, no script prevents any actions anymore.
