jQuery Colorbox
[resolved] Meta tag with name jquery colorbox doesn't pass w3 validator (3 posts)

    Hi.
    Your plugin adds meta tag <meta name="jQuery Colorbox" content="4.2"/> to the header and http://validator.w3.org says that such keyword is not registered (HTML5 validation)? Why you add this tag? It's not needed. Please, remove it.

    jquery-colorbox-frontend.php, on line 29 there is an action, that executes renderMetaTag function, that displays this unnecessary tag.

    Hi,

    I added that tag so that I see which version of the plugin is active on a blog when I get a support request.

    I was not aware that HTML5 does not like custom meta-tags. I removed the tag in the current development version.

    Cheers,
    Arne
