Re: challenge 6 and 3

well, my friend for 3:
If you see, when click Begin Challenge it sends to http://www.thisislegal.com/challenge3/index.php?file=<b>home</b>, you need to replace that "home" with the address of the file.

For 5:

If you have Mozilla, search for FireBug if u have Chrome it's implemented. Now, if you click right on Email Password and select inspect, you will see something Hidden, you have to change that "Hidden" thing with your email address then the password will be sent to you,

Re: challenge 6 and 3

Srry i haven't seen that you want help for challenge 6 not for 5 so:
Well, Google and others search engines have to look for this file in your site for your site appear when someone search for that site. More information here: http://www.robotstxt.org/

Somewhere in the site it's a file named Robots.txt. You need to find where is that file.

No, you won't be finding anything useful in the page source but Google is your friend.

Re: challenge 6 and 3

For challenge 3, replacing "home" with the address of c99 works because how it works is, the site loads whatever is placed after "file=", and does not check to make sure that the file is safe.

For challenge 6, when a site it visited by a crawler, the homepage is the first location viewed. From there, the crawler reads the file that says what pages are to be ignored. The file isn't in the page source, but it is in the root directory (any deeper and the crawler has potential to access unwanted pages)
