I have been told that a particular link has shown up on a web app scan for a website.  We are searching pages in the site for that link. 

Doing "view page source" and searching on some random individual pages within the site have been unable to find the link so far.

I was wondering if it is possible to download the entire site into Dreamweaver and having Dreamweaver search the site.  I assume that this is not possible and the only way to do it would be if you have login credentials for the account on the web server for that site?

You want to download someone else's website to search it with DW?

Yeah, that won't work. You need the FTP credentials to take advantage of DW's Get functionality. But there are website download browser add-ons, like Scrapbook Plus, that will allow you to download an entire site, you could then search that however you like.

Have you tried a site search using Google?

Adding "site: www.thesite.com" (without quotes) followed by your search terms is generally pretty effective.

I do not desire to download someone else's website to search it in DW!

I'm not quite sure why you've revived an answered thread from March of 2018.

If you have questions about DW, start a new thread here by clicking the Post to Community button on the top right when you are logged in. 

I will be locking this thread to avoid further confusion.

Which web app were you using that detected the alleged link.  And for what purpose was it being used?  That might shed some light on why you can't see it in source code.
