Hello, hope this is in the right thread
When you view the source in ie, is it possible to view when the page was amended and uploaded?
Thank everyone

There are ways, but not by viewing source. Servers send information like that in HTTP headers, information that is exchanged between the server and the browser and that normally isn't visible to the user. Last-Modified is one of the headers the server may send.

I was going to tell you to view Page Info in FF on for example this page
only to discover FF skips the Last-Updated. I didn't know it was selective about that. angry.gif

Oh well. You can use online tools like Rex Swain's.

Lynx (a text browser) will tell you. Also OffByOne. An odd browsers without JS, CSS and frames support that's actually quite handy to test pages in.
Here's a free addon for IE that also does the job.

The list could go on... blush.gif

Here's Lynx's output for easy viewing.
