    Hey guys,

    I have been breaking my head over this all week. Can anyone help?

    I found this site with some really nice buttons, I wanted to replicate them so I looked at the source code and copied.
    I pasted it on Dreamweaver and downloaded all the css, php and many more files and linked them.

    Everything was going smooth until I changed the after that the buttons did not function correctly.
    If anyone wants to give it a shot here is the site:

    I am exhausted, has anyone ever done this?


    I don’t see any buttons on the website?

    Also, be careful here… There’s no such thing as a ‘legal reverse engineer’ in terms of web design. There’s a fine line between inspiration and copyright infringement.


    My too, I don´t see buttons there.


    I meant to say the “menu” I was trying to duplicate the menu from I thought the menu where buttons, sorry about the confusion.

    I didn’t realize it code could be copyrighted, I thought copyright was images and works of art… Thanks guys, I could have gotten in a lot of trouble!


    “Code” doesn’t necessarily carry a copyright, but a “design” certainly does. Just make sure to make the menu yours by the end of your process.
