  • Hello All i am validating wordpress theme called tuts press.

    and there was a lot of errors in XHTML and i have correct them.
    but at last 23 errors renaming and i cant find the source code of them in theme file’s.

    on front page it’s using this code to show latest post.

    <ul id="column2"><li>
    			$col2postcount = 1;
    			if(get_option('tpthemes_column2_posts_type') == 'Featured Posts') {
    			  query_posts( array(
    				  'offset' => '1',
    				  'tag' => get_option('tpthemes_featured_post_tags')
    			if( have_posts() ) : while( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    				if($col2postcount < 6) {
    					include(TEMPLATEPATH. '/includes/templates/home-featured-loop2.php');
    				else {
    					include(TEMPLATEPATH. '/includes/templates/home-featured-loop3.php');
    			$col2postcount ++;
    			endwhile; endif; wp_reset_query();

    and i am having problems here. the output of this code in XHTML is

    <ul id="column2"><li>
    <div class="thumbnail-sag"><li class="clear featured-1"> 
    <a href="" rel="bookmark"></a>
    	<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="" title="Permalink to Education Ends and Means" rel="bookmark">Education Ends and Means</a></h2>
    	<div class="entry-meta">
    		<abbr title="July 5, 2012 at 10:59 am">6 days ago</abbr> <span class="entry-sep">|</span> <span class="entry-comment"><a href="" title="Comment on Education Ends and Means">0 comment</a></span><span class="entry-cat">
    	<a href="">General Topics</a>	</span></span>
    	</div> <!--end .entry-meta-->

    and it’s showing following errors
    Line 131, Column 56: document type does not allow element “li” here; missing one of “ul”, “ol”, “menu”, “dir” start-tag
    <div class="thumbnail-sag"><li class="clear featured-1">

    Line 140, Column 90: end tag for element “span” which is not open

    <a href="">General Topics</a>	</span></span>

    I could not find “tuts press” theme in the WP free theme directory.
    Is it a paid theme?
    If it is, you may want to contact the vendor.

    No its free theme.. i have download it from another site.. and thank you for reply.. i have configured it all and now there is no error… making it looks like complete CMS website and using widgets on homepage instead of latest post or static page.. i will upload it in wordpress directory to free download for all.
