    It's an end-point for a website. It could be a web page it could be an API processing point, it could be an application. There's no way to know without knowing what system/service is providing it, and seeing what it actually does.

    I don't know. As I said, it depends 100% on the system that it's from, and as you didn't say anything about that, there's no way for us to have any idea at all.

    OK, this page: https://elevacity.com/NOID/products/smart-coffee
    the bottom two links links add to a shopping cart. then you can "view" the cart in the top right of the navigation.

    Now I'm thinking it's javascript inside the site.

    What say? can you tell from this info? But the cart doesn't work when I try to "create an account." I'm testing this for a friend and possible future work.


    thanks again!

    It does look like it's something to do with the 'application' that's been built for that site. The only links on there are for an optimised JavaScript and CSS file. It looks like the 'app' doesn't do anything much, but in that case it's only for reducing the bandwidth for those two files.

    Thanks a bunch Catacaustic. So I'd have to look at the CSS or JS to figure this out, or both. Thanks again!
