    Surely it can be. 😉 You should fix those errors there, and see if fixing those errors, has helped any, atleast helped a little bit ok? If fixing those, didn’t do much at all.. then report back here ok..? =)

    validate.

    I’m not going to sit here and sift through all the code editing things that I don’t even have a clue about. Is it some kind of tables or css issue?

    Jesus! When I clicked on the first link, for validating the blog/site, it was taking *forever* to load, me on crap dialup.. so I just gave up on it sigh.. =(

    Okay i don’t actually know what half the stuff means, so how can I edit this myself??

    Well, like I said in my P.S. up there, I couldn’t even load the validation/error page, to see what the errors were, and where they are located sigh. =(

    I’m on crap dialup..and that page took *forever* to load for me..so I gave up on it. =( Someone that has a faster internet connection, will have to help ya with it I guess. =P

    I hope so, I should have mentioned at the start that I have limited experience with php etc, so even if I were to go through all of that I can’t even do much anyway!

    You go back to that validation page and check the Show Source box, then click Revalidate.
    Every error line # will become a clickable link that will take you to the exact location of the faulty code. That’s always helpful.

    It check over the whole thing, even the posts?? What is the site going to? index.php as a whole?

    From looking at the Validator response and Viewing Source, I can see a few things straight away. These are (X)HTML issues (which is what the Validator is checking out) not PHP. The Validator checks the page that is viewed by the Browser (Client-side) after PHP has done it’s dynamic trickery (Server-side).

    1. In your template, you have <h4> and <h5> tags used as content containers – change these to <div> with different classes for your style hooks. That will take care of all the warnings about <p> in invalid locations.

    2. Your Digg and Del.icio.us links have unescaped Ampersands; & should be coded as &amp;. This may be something you can edit in your post template or may be the result of a plugin. How are you generating these links?

    3. Several <br> tags are present. This is an XHTML document (according to DOCTYPE!) so these should be <br />

    4. In the footer, the “x calls to the database” line is lacking a closing </li> tag.

    That’s a few things off the top of my head, there may be more. Can I recommend that you run your templates through HTML Tidy (or similar) before uploading and, in any case, Validate, Validate, Validate.

    I understand it can be a bit confusing at first, but it will help your site look better in all browsers if you validate. Go through each line and read up at the w3c site on how to validate your pages. If they are too confusing, try Jem’s site. She does a good job.

    Hope that helps.
