Attractive design, but it is always recommended to validate the HTML.

I have never really ever validated any sites before. Bu ti though tI would tackle this one. After a day of trying to fix issues i ended up wit ha broken site. I restored back to what i had. What frustartion!

Starting over and two errors/warnin that have me perplexed is why this is causing issues :

<txp:linklist form="plainlinks" category="Roadrash" limit="16" wraptag="br" sort="rand()" />

plainlinks_form has :

<txp:linkdesctitle /><br />

And what is with this error?

Bad value article for attribute role on element li.

<li role="article" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Article">    

the > is highlighted red

( i can’t seem to show red via this : > )

Re: A Fool for Textpattern

First, you should correct step by step the obvious errors. For example, you have two <title> in the <head>. Or, the following HTML doesn’t make sense (from the line 86 to 90):

<ul id="menu-topbar-menu" class="nav container-inner group">
<br /> <p>			
<!--  <li id="menu-item" class="menu-item">
</li>  -->  &nbsp; <p>
</ul>

Or this (from line 101 to 106):

</form>
	<div>
	</div>
</form>

Or you have multiple id="menu-item", on line 88, 129 and 143.

Etc.

All this are examples of errors listed by the validation.

Re: A Fool for Textpattern

Maybe put the theme files onto github (pages, forms, styles) and people can help you fix the validation problems.

Re: A Fool for Textpattern

Hi, bici. The validator can be fooled by your errors, namely showing some that actually aren’t false. That’s caused by previous errors that cause the validator to make false assumptions. If you can’t make any sense of an error, go on to the next one, like/similar to what GugUser proposed.

I think all of us have experienced getting warnings about two-digit error amounts, and they were gone after correcting “the one” that triggered the whole error chain. Nevertheless, you seem to have some real ones :)

Very attractive site. One thing I notice is that at full desktop width, the column VELOISTS – with plenty of links and great images – is there. But when I narrow the window, it disappears and I haven’t been able to find that content elsewhere.

Great suggestion! I have been meaning to learn about Github for some time now, and this is a great incentive to get up to speed on it. I assume i need an account and some kind of desktop app?

Hi bici, You do not really need the desktop app.

The URL is here, yes? Can’t you just copy/paste each of your forms/pages/styles into text files with the corresponding names, into your github project? Kind of like we do here.
