    Hi idienstler, are you looking to resolve these? If so it would be best to start up a Child Theme.

    Theme Author Artur –



    Yes, the theme has minor HTML errors (according to the validator), but if you look closely there are two types of error:

    1. category attribute in the rel tag is generated automatically by WordPress (I could use older version of HTML or do some dirty hack to remove this attribute, any of those solutions are not worth it, in fact rel=”category tag” is part of the specification but W3C validator still marks it as an error).

    2. iframe from a Vimeo’s video player (to fix it I would have to remove videos from the demo site, which makes no sense).

    As you can see, there is no reason to panic.



    1. Yes you are right. I had a closer look on this topic especially
    helped here a lot. The problem is that html5 is still not final.

    2. Yes if you remove the video the error disappears.
    But you don’t have to remove the complete video just the
    – webkitAllowFullScreen
    – mozallowfullscreen


    As less errors are shown up in the w3c validor the more people will buy the premium edition of the theme that at first don’t know you and your coding skills.
    As a customer who often buys wordpress themes i have no time to look at the sourcecode of every theme that I find interesting so I use the w3c for a quick check
