Hello,
Someone just introduced some codes to test some ads on my website and I can't reach him so he can delete them.

What is the best way to find the ad codes in FTP ? I tried using inspect element on Chrome but it didn't help.
I looked all over the files - can't find those damn codes..

Thank you.

1) Download everything on your PC ( or at east the most qualifying files )
2) Open Notepad++
3) Hit CTRL+F and use Search in files
4) Put whatever is most appropriate to find ad code and search through all your files

There's no easier way unless you know where the guy used the code. Hope it helps!

Who says the old methods don't work?! I don't think there is a more cumbersome method, but I'm not sure either if there are other choices. Well done.
