Home page text in italics (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I have been adding some plugins lately and all of a sudden most of my text on my homepage is in italics. I ran my site through the W3C Markup Validation and got tons of errors, but I'm not sure where to find the source in my dashboard. I'm also not sure which of the errors is causing it. I figured on fixing them all, but again, I have no idea which of my coded pages is the one to edit.

    Thanks in advance.

    Looks like many of those are in your content - you can use a browser tool like Firebug - use View Source - to see the HTML of the page with line numbers that correspond to the validator results. Some errors will show up in red.

    You have quite a few unclosed tags and outdated HTML - <center> for example. The italic is likely from an unclosed or misplace <i> tag so you could search for those.

    Ok, great. Thanks so much!

    Gosh, I use <center> ALL the time! What is the updated code for that?

    Depends on what you are centering - see:

    This is a good CSS reference site:

    Ok thanks. Do I use CSS inside of my blog's html editor, though? If not, can you point me in the right direction to learn the current html codes?

    It's best to use external CSS (see the CSS reference page for explanation on that) - and you can often use existing elements, classes or ids to target elements. But aside from that, yes, you can use HTML in the TEXT editor - the site above has an HTML section - so that's a good place to learn more about it.
