I'm not happy that I cannot view the html for the entire page. I'm very disappointed in Homestead. After being a customer for many years now, It seems to being going down hill. I'm going to start looking for another site to host my page

Hi Christopher0661,

We are sorry to hear this, but one of the things people have always liked about Homestead was the lack of need for HTML. I am also not aware of any point at which the HTML of the entire page has ever been available, but I have only been around since 2009. If you have customization needs that require HTML then you may have outgrown Homestead.

What is it you want to change? Perhaps it can be done.

Thanks

Drew

Unfortunately, we cannot troubleshoot HTML not working. I would contact the company you got the HTML from for updated code.
