Support » Plugin: Page Builder by SiteOrigin » Panel grids wp_footer styles invalid on W3C validator

  • Dear Authors,

    First of all, thank you for this great plugin. Very versatile and easy to use.

    I am using it in one of my WordPress theme which is under development. When using “Layout Builder Widget”, the builder styles for the widget are appended before the end of body tag with ID as “siteorigin-panels-grids-wp_footer”. This inline style tag doesn’t validate on validator.w3.org.

    When layout builder widget is not used, only one instance of style tag is inserted in head which is perfectly valid.

    I found these lines inside siteorigin-panels.php:

    add_action('wp_head', 'siteorigin_panels_print_inline_css', 12);
    add_action('wp_footer', 'siteorigin_panels_print_inline_css');

    If I remove the action hook for footer and add it to head, will it work? Or is there any other workaround so that styles are not appended in body tag.

    Edit: Here is the screen shot of validation results: http://prntscr.com/9xlmz9

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    We have the same problem. Is there already solution for that?

    Thanks.

    If anyone is still interested, I made a jQuery workaround:

    1) put this tag in your header.php <style type="text/css" media="all" id="dummy"> </style> just before the </head> closing tag

    2) put this line in your jQuery theme script (inside in a $( document ).ready( function() ):
    $('#dummy').replaceWith($('#siteorigin-panels-grids-wp_footer'));

    This way, after the document will be ready, jQuery will put the entire “siteorigin-panels-grids-wp_footer” in the <head>. The validator will quite and the styles will be applied like before.

    @robertocodo and SO Page Builder authors – I can confirm that adding styles to wp_footer action produces validation error – but also the jQuery “hack” also doesn’t work, validation-vise.
    When page is finally rendered, the “siteorigin-panels-grids-wp_footer” style tag is moved into head, but, apparently, the validator checks page before that happens.

    @anydog You’re right, but in development stage usually you load the page in the browser, save it, then upload to w3c validator. This way works fine. I’m a Themeforest author and I get a theme approved this way.

    @robertocodo are you sure ? Because I got it rejected with validator link which included demo link, meaning they checked live site, not the file. (yeah, I’m also Themeforest author 🙂 )

    @Anidog search “Hampton” on Themeforest, you can see the theme that I get approvation. If you inspect the code you can see what I described above, but if you check the online demo with w3c validator you get an error (How you said before).
    However, you are not responsible for external plugin, then you have to keep the “PageBuilder” external, including it by TGM.
