I set the response search string just to make sure that the page is rendering properly.

i see, is it possible to see what you put into webserver as a code or whatever it is ?
i am not developer and no idea what should be inside response string and where to put it.

I didn't put anything, I just used text from the page in that box. Remember though, webseer sees the full HTML output, not the rendered output without tags.

Go to the page, any small bit of text, copy it and paste it as I suggested. I am not sure how to convey that any better as I seem to be repeating myself.

what i understand is, creating any html file, put any text in it, put this file to the main folder of site, and putting same texts to the Response Search String box ?

or did i misunderstand ?
