I'm evaluating WordPress and took a look at the classic theme footer.php
What I'm surprised by is that there are two closing </div> tags, should the first one be an opening tag?
<!-- begin footer --> </div> <?php get_sidebar(); ?> <p class="credit"><!--<?php echo get_num_queries(); ?> queries. <?php timer_stop(1); ?> seconds. --> <cite><?php echo sprintf(__("Powered by <a href='http://wordpress.org/' title='%s'><strong>WordPress</strong></a>"), __("Powered by WordPress, state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform.")); ?></cite></p> </div> <?php wp_footer(); ?> </body> </html>
