I want to find out which pages on my website (I use blogger) have a specific line of code. For example, I want to know which pages contain the code:

"div class='sss'"

Does anyone have an idea?

    Look at the source and search for it? – Rob Aug 4 '20 at 12:38
  • @Rob If it's hosted on blogger they don't have access to the source code for the site. – Stephen Ostermiller Aug 4 '20 at 13:29
  • @StephenOstermiller Hit ctl-u in any browser. Bam. Instant access. – Rob Aug 4 '20 at 13:33
  • @Rob - They'd have to do that for each page. I would imagine, since OP is asking here, that makes a page-by-page search a non-trivial matter. – GeoffAtkins Aug 4 '20 at 17:28

First, list out the URLs to search in a text file. Use a utility like wget or aria to download the source codes to your local machine. Both these utilities have options to specify a list of URLs to download via text file as input. For example, wget uses --input-file=file option. Once downloaded to a folder on the local machine, you should be able to use a utility like grep to scan for the specified string within files. Or you may use any software or in-build search in your operating system (depending on availability) to search within files.

I don't know of any search engine that would index your website's code.

However, all is not necessarily lost.

You could use a site-ripper to download the whole website to your computer, then use a tool capable of searching through text files for instances of a string you specify (free examples of both can be found online for your preferred OS). This would then highlight every example of div class='sss' and the files it is found in can then be directly related to the pages of your site.

I accept that this is fairly long-winded and, since I can only assume it's because you want to make a change to all such instances in your site, laborious to use. But I can't, off the top of my head, think of better way to do it.
