Validation Errors and Warning (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I found this site, but I don't understand what the results mean. Should I be worried about the errors and warnings, and should I correct them?

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.writingservicesonline.com&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    Also, my site will not display bullets, not even when I place the HTML tags for them in the HTML screen. Is there something in the coding that prevents them from appearing for some odd reason?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you should clean up those errors. Some errors are not a big deal as they are the result of changing standards or other inconsequential coding things. But many of yours are coding errors that can cause problems -- in particular the ones that have to do with missing, open, unclosed or extra tags. Each error tells you where and what the problem is -- so you have to go through your code and find them. You also need to validate each page on your site. Yes, it can be a pain but quite necessary if you care about clean coding.

    Here is some more info on validating:

    On the bullets -- yes there is CSS code in the base.css file that eliminates the bullets -- here:

    ol, ul {
    		list-style: none; }

    You can stop that behavior by either removing the above code or styling a particular list to have the bullets (or whatever you want there).

    It worked! Thank you!

    Does clean code affect SEO?

    Oh, and now I have bullets for my sidebar widgets - anyway to get those to go away?

    just add #sidebar_top { list-style: none; } in your css file it's done.

    There are no bullets visible in your sidebar -- try clearing your browser cache?
