This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Joomla is a content management system and the page code is assembled from several different sources depending on the extensions enabled for the particular page such as the template and the component and any plugins or modules.

This makes it difficult to edit the code directly and reliably.

You can use template overrides and other methods to override the default code but you need to know what you are doing.

I suggest you start reading some of the documentation before making changes that could easily be overwritten by Joomla or third party extension updates in future.

See https://joomla.stackexchange.com/a/19338/120 for more information.
