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] Sociable plugin and XHTML Strict Validation

[SOLVED] Sociable plugin and XHTML Strict Validation

Hi I'm running Wordpress 2.8.4 with Atahualpa 3.4.1. I have had no problems until today when I installed Sociable 3.4.4. After adding the %sociable% info item to the post footer on the "Edit POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS" form, I started getting XHTML strict validation errors on http://validator.w3.org.

Here is one of the errors: document type does not allow element "ul" here. I traced that to this code snippet:
HTML Code:
<span class="sociable">
If I remember my XHTML strict rules correctly, this is illegal because "span" is an inline element and "ul" is a block element. That is, you are not allowed to put a block element inside an inline element.

Instead of a "span" I think the code should generate a "div" when it is rendering the %sociable% info item.

I could be wrong though (I often am).

FWIW, I fixed this by making some minor changes to bfa_sociable2.php.

Specifically, I changed from this:
PHP Code:
$html .= "\n<span class=\"sociable\">\n";
$html .= "</ul>\n</span>\n"
to this:
PHP Code:
$html .= "\n<div class=\"sociable\">\n";
$html .= "</ul>\n</div>\n"
As you can see, I simply changed the span element to a div element. I hope that helps someone else that doesn't like seeing XHTML validation errors.
