off topic/make believe attribute problem

I have been yelling at the invision people for a week now and either they or I clearly are missing something… Here is my correspondence as it pertains to css validation problem here… www.thegraphicdesignresource.com/forum


thing is my sheet will validate if outside of invision like on my desktop but the page won't online?

 Invalid number : displayshow is not a display value : show
* Line: 107

Invalid number : displayshow is not a display value : show
* Line: 159

Invalid number : displayshow is not a display value : show
* Line: 216

Invalid number : displayshow is not a display value : show

I can fix font issue just have yet to get to it….
as for css I can't locate that stuff… I think it should be display block or display inherit…rather than show perhaps?

thanks for your time.

   Hello,

Gallery uses IPB's CSS, so just installing gallery will not change your CSS. Also, the CSS should validate anyway, so it isn't a problem with the default CSS.

17:01 2004/10/28   ok, check this out… I just can't seem to locate it….. asked a colleague of mine.

Hi Nigel, the display attribute 'show' is being used as an inline style in the html for whatever reason? I would have thought visibility: visible should be used; you may have to check through the php code to find where it's being generated from. Show is not an attribute…

thanks

   Hello,

Gallery does not generate anything on the front page of the board, aside from the link at the top, so there really isn't any PHP code to check through on this. In any event, we do not offer skinning support.

What i did was remove a number of the style attributes that set the style="display:show", but i didnt remove all of them.

In your admin cp, go to "Skin Search & Replace" under "Skins and Templates", then search for:

Code

style="display:{$show['
and remove the entire style attribute for all instances you find. There will be quite a few of them, but its really the only way :)

If you wish to add the w3c buttons to your site, just edit one of the menus (left or right, and create a new external table, then, opent an html tag, and insert the code for the button. E.g.

Code

[external_table="Validation"]
[[color=black]html][/color]
<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml10"
alt="Valid XHTML 1.0!" height="31" width="88" /></a>
[color=black][/[/color]html]
[/external_table]

Well i see you have the images source fixed now ;)

The center tag?  Show the code you used, and I will take a look.  

If what you are trying to do is center the images within that external table, use html to create a table, and insert the images within cells ;)

ocPortal is xhtml transitional, so you need to use <center /></center /> for it to validate correctly :)

there is something inherently amusing about screwing up my validation with the validation buttons.... hehe..... I am a bit stumped... I followed tag suggestion, made it worse... Looks right to me?

To center something, I recommend adding style="margin:auto". That's uses the latest standard and is a relatively clean way to do it.

OK Fixed. It seems that the same code validates differently on my test server, than it does on yours!

I was wrong with this, a minor misunderstanding as to how XHTML validates :)
