Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] W3C and CSS font-weight property

I am using atahualpa 3.5.3
I have just finished making my site w3c valid (LOL), and I found some strange things.
Becouse of W3C CSS validator I commented some lines to "make" it valid. Then I realized, that there are other font-weight lines that it accepted without errors.

css.php line 631-650 looks as follows:

div.widget ul li a:active {
	text-decoration: none; 
	/*font-weight: normal;*/
	color: #<?php echo $bfa_ata['widget_lists']['link-color']; ?>; 
	/*font-weight: <?php echo $bfa_ata['widget_lists']['link-weight']; ?>;*/

div.widget ul li ul li a:link, 
div.widget ul li ul li a:visited, 
div.widget ul li ul li a:active {
	color: #<?php echo $bfa_ata['widget_lists2']['link-color']; ?>; 
	/*font-weight: <?php echo $bfa_ata['widget_lists2']['link-weight']; ?>;*/

div.widget ul li ul li ul li a:link, 
div.widget ul li ul li ul li a:visited, 
div.widget ul li ul li ul li a:active {
	color: #<?php echo $bfa_ata['widget_lists3']['link-color']; ?>; 
	/*font-weight: <?php echo $bfa_ata['widget_lists3']['link-weight']; ?>;*/
line 251-256:

h2.blogtitle a:hover {
    text-decoration: none;
	color: #<?php echo $bfa_ata['blog_title_color_hover']; ?>;
	font-weight: <?php echo $bfa_ata['blog_title_weight']; ?>;
lines 1554-1559:

p.giTitle {
margin: 0.3em 0 !important;
font-size: 1em;
font-weight: normal;
color: #666;
Looking these lines I couldn't figure out what the problem was.

Try putting the entire file with the code which fails validation into the page below for direct validation.


Strange that your site should fail validation, i'm testing a site using the latest version of the theme and it passes validation, are you sure its not a plugin causing your failure since some plugins do fail and i tend to avoid those ones.

Becouse it is a php file, it is a bit harder to copy-paste those small codes, but those lines are shown valid.
How did you manage to accept w3c those -moz/-webkit/etc. lines?

Sorry, the original error was not with word-wrap:normal but with font-weight:normal. Now it is gone and I don't know why. The validator showed the error in css.php and gone after I commented it out.

But I think that I found some real error. In CSS insert there is a line:
ul.rMenu-ver li { margin-top: 0xp; }
where xp should be replaced to px.

Next I don't know what to do with this. (now I deleted the entire code, becouse it is an IE6 fix)
* html div#wrapper Parse Error {<!--width:expression"95%");
* html div#wrapper Parse Error -->}

And the error
div#container 0 is not a box-shadow value : 0 0 15px #333 0 0 15px #333
which comes from Style & configure LAYOUT
can be eliminated by putting px-es after the zeros.
