  • Hi:
    My page at http://www.christian-dating-service-plus.com/blog is not validating. I put text in the sidebar..1 error comes back:
    Error Line 133 column 4: end tag for “ul” which is not finished.

    Most likely, You nested tags and closed them in the wrong order. For example is not acceptable, as must be closed before . Acceptable nesting is:

    I cannot figure it out….I would be very grateful for any help

  • Just close off your unordered list with a [/li] (replace with the “[ ]” with “< >”) and your sidebar.php should validate fine.

    try closing the li before the ul /ul, or since nothing is between the ul /ul delete them altogether. (in the sidebar around lines 130-136)

    It’s actually because you have a <ul> </ul> with no line-items between it. A stupid error in my opinion that has gotten me before.

    To see it more clearly, go back to the validator and enable the “Show Source” option. Then scroll down to line 133 and you’ll see it.

    You need to take out the <ul> and </ul> between “Perfect match” and “archive”
