  • Resolved lowlights


    I created a Page called “Downloads” for my humor/satire site.

    Strange thing – the first two “a href=” tags work fine, after that – the text of the tag is there, but it is not actually a working hypertext link.

    Thoughts? Here is the page:

    There’s a fair number of errors on the page and oddly “mis-nested” html tags. Along with some attributes only partially wrapped in double quotes.

    You might want to validate that page and fix some of those — I imagine that’ll get ‘er back in shape.

    For a list of those validation errors, see here.

    I did try the absolute URLs rather than the relative and it did not seem to change. I’ll review the coding of that Page.

    I’m a nitwit – this is what I get for multiple pastes from one copy. Many of my “p align=left” needed their closing quotation marks. And – duh – now it works.

    You know – I even have the HTML Validator plug-in on Firefox, and I didn’t think to review it that way.

    Thanks for the quick help!

    Note: This is the first anything in WordPress that threw me – this software has worked like a charm – for a newbie like me.

    Glad you got it sorted. Happy blogging!
