Support » Plugin: WP-PostRatings » Validation: there is no attribute "data-nonce"

  • Hello! Thanks for your great plugin!

    The problem. I try to validate my site but I get an error from the postratings plugin:

    there is no attribute “data-nonce”

    If I remove the “data-nonce” I get an error from the plugin.

    Can I validate the site with your plugin at XHTML 1.0 Transitional?

    King Regards,

    1. There might be a problem with your HTML code that is causing the data-nonce that is not found. Either a theme or plugin conflict. Try the default twentytwelve theme.
    2. Why are you still using HTML 1.0 Traditional? Just use <!DOCTYPE> will do.

    Thanks Lester for your plugin.
    I am having the same issue validating my site using the W3C Markup Validation Service –

    nsanyi23, Did you find a solution? Any suggestions?

    You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document type you are using does not support that attribute for this element. This error is often caused by incorrect use of the “Strict” document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the “Transitional” document type to get the “target” attribute), or by using vendor proprietary extensions such as “marginheight” (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead).

    This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no supported attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error message for further information.

    How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute, (Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check that they are both allowed in the chosen document type, and/or use CSS instead of this attribute. If you received this error when using the <embed> element to incorporate flash media in a Web page, see the FAQ item on valid flash.

    Hmm from your code, nonce is there. My initial guess is some broken JS or HTMl is breaking it.

    Can you try the default theme with just wp-postratings?
