I need help

Dont Panic - checkout the plugin's page on my site for more info. Or send me a message to:

echo $email = $name . '@' . $domain . '.com'; // no spam

I wish to improve this plugins speed

  1. As this plugin is really only ment for entry editors/admins only the plugin only adds its code when it knows a user has editing rights. As such it will not slow the end users page loading anywhere near so much as the admins. (The following two points do not apply to end users)

  2. The main reason for slower page loading times is the requirement of an external call to various validators APIs. If your feeling extra enthusiastic you could install your own instances of the validators on your server. If so then you can change the locations of in the wp_w3_validation classes global vars $validator_... See the validators homepages for more details.

  3. This plugin uses its own stylesheet hence another request is needed to complete the page to improve speed you may wish to combine the contents of wp_w3_validation_main.css with your main css file.

I wish to only ever call one of the validators

you can call the individual validators by making a call to the validator hence:

$wp_w3_validation = new wp_w3_validation();

$wp_w3_validation->display_html_validity(); // for xhtml validation

$wp_w3_validation->display_css_validity(); // for css validation

Note: i will try and keep these function calls the same but im NOT promising anything on future updates.
