[resolved] Upgrade To 3.04: Theme Broke As A Result (5 posts)

    I was using WordPress 3.03 and upgraded to 3.04.

    As a result my theme, a modified Kubrick, broke

    I experimented with switching themes. Only two themes have the problem, my theme and the old default Kubrick theme ( latest version ). Oddly enough, the Kurbrick theme at the WordPress.COM free blog site works just fine:

    I experimented with deactivating all of my plugins. No effect.

    I'm thinking about rolling back, but I don't want to give up my customized Kubrick theme and I don't want to give up the ability to keep up with the latest wordpress version.

    Any ideas for finding what the problem might be?

    Thanks in advance

    Is it the layout that is broken?

    First try to validate your site. Begin with this error:

    end tag for "div" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified
    You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".

    You probabley forgot to close a <div> tag?

    Yes, it is the layout. I'll look at the validation site, be back in a bit

    Thanks. It didn't occur to me to use the W3 HTML validation site. I just always assume it is a CSS problem :).

    It turns out the upgrade was fine.

    I had a bad img tag in a post I made right after the upgrade:

    Old, broken

    <img src = "http://8.media.collegehumor.cvcdn.com/6/a/collegehumor.e88e7f66b923500ab1e4e21a49519f64.jpg" alt = "'>

    New, fixed ( far right, replace a ' with a " in the alt attribute )

    <p><img src = "http://8.media.collegehumor.cvcdn.com/6/a/collegehumor.e88e7f66b923500ab1e4e21a49519f64.jpg" alt = "">

    Well done! I always validate first and then look in the css. Not everything has to validate for sites to behave as expected but omitted divs are usually the first I try to fix.
