XHTML invalid issues (5 posts)

    My site is http://www.gridirongiants.com , and I have no idea how to get it back to valid in XHTML strict like it was before I made any posts. When I click on XHTML in my sidebar it says something about a header referrer not working too. I have searched the threads but nothing has helped me solve what I need to. Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.

    I don't have any problems with a "header referrer" but see 398 errors after validation ;). Most of the problems are related to the table you have inserted at the end in your "USC Pro Day 2006" post. The validation output is pretty much self-explanatory if you are familiar with XHTML. If you are not, it's time for some further reading.

    Alright, 398 is what I found too. I'll read up and try to correct my validation issues. Is there some sort of program or plugin that could correct those for me? Like Tidy? If not, then I'll figure them out. Thanks.

    tidy will cause you lots of problems .. remember wp is database driven, its not static html.

    In fact, Ive had issues with Tidy fixing too much just on plain ole HTML sites, causing more problems than it ever fixed.

    Validation issues tend to be hierarchial, one problem causes more which causes more which causes more. In other words, start at the top and work down, revalidating as you go. Multiple things can typically be cleared up by one fix.

    Alright, I will do that. Time to d some homework. Is there a way to in wordpress or through a plugin that I can prevent errors in the future?
