I am able to use view html source code from another web site and embed the code on my wordpress page but it does not align correctly.
Anyone know how to paste the view source code where it fit perfect on the wordpress page?December 23, 2012 at 12:19 pm #7183
Please provide a link to your website and if you can indicate the source code we should be looking at along with where it's placed on your website. Thanks!December 23, 2012 at 1:20 pm #7193December 23, 2012 at 1:31 pm #7198

P.S. The Rules of the forum state, "These forums are for general discussion on WordPress, CSS and design and site feedback." It doesn't' specifically say Genesis framework. http://www.studiopress.com/forums/December 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm #7202December 23, 2012 at 2:44 pm #7209
missing the style.css??? how did you determine that?December 23, 2012 at 3:38 pm #7211
you can use a tool like FireBug to get the CSS for that, though there may be legal and ethical issues at stake as well. Generally when you are copying something you are dealing with copyrights. Does the site give you the right to use their content or is it copyrighted. Is the code you are copying copyrighted? In some cases the site owner doesn't have the right to transfer their copyrights for code created for them to you like that even if they gave you express permission.
Even if everything is more legally gray you also have to weigh the ethical considerations of taking someone else's work and presenting it as you own. It devalues the work just as much as printing money devalues the dollar. That ends up hurting everyone.
So while you "can" do something it doesn't mean you "should" do something. I'd recommend weighing on these issues then look into the steps of accomplishing a taskDecember 23, 2012 at 3:41 pm #7213
it's my work that I am copying.December 23, 2012 at 3:48 pm #7217
Just a thought, if you just copy and paste it - when you update your listing, the updates may not follow over. If you iFrame it, any changes you make will always be updated. Just a thought.December 23, 2012 at 3:52 pm #7219
If it is fully your work then make sure you get the CSS affecting the elements. Use a tool like FireBug to inspect it and see what CSS is controlling it. If a developer created it make sure your contract gives you rights to reuse the code as you see fit. If there is no contract then most states have Work For Hire definitions that assign you exclusive rights to the code.
The problem with an iFrame is that they are not indexed so you get zero SEO benefit.
