[Resolved] [Plugin: Magento WordPress Integration] Occasional Garbage Displayed

  • wordpress at /. magento under /store.

    I am seeing occasional garbage pages (various browsers / various locations) when displaying wordress pages from / … haven’t seen any problems in /store. Sometimes I can see the page but when I ‘view source’ that will be garbage.

    I suspect the page headers.

    wordpress header generates <!DOCTYPE html>, magento generates <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">.

    I’ve changed wordpress header.php to mimic magento … now it’s wait and see if I still get the problem.

    Does this make sense to you?

    magento also generates <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />, whereas wp gives simply <meta charset=UTF-8" />. Do you think I should mimic this too?

    Thanks, Neil aka ircsome

  • PS I am using a child of 2011 theme … which I think begins to exploit HTML5 … hence the plain unvarnished <!DOCTYPE html>, I think.

    What type of garbage are we talking?

    unfortunately I can’t reproduce the problem since I changed the <!DOCTYPE>.

    However, I found this image which is pretty well how the pages looked when loaded.


    I witnessed this in safari, firefox, chrome and ie9, but not always. and sometimes in the “view source” but not always.

    Looks like an encoding problem, but I don’t understand why it would only happen occasionally.



    I would like to close this report, as I think the above may be a red herring. Unless you know something different, of course 🙂

    I’m suspecting W3 Total Cache right now – just disabled it (it clobbered my .htaccess file on disable too!!!). Rebuilt .htaccess and I’m now running without wp caching.

    We’ll see what happens now.

    Cheers, let me know if anything comes of this!
