So I have been Working On Validating My WordPress Theme…
Today, is day Number 5, in the designing of My WordPress Theme, and I decided to go through all the coding, that I have done, so far. My plan was to iron out all the problems, or errors.
The most common way to do this, is to use the W3C Validation Service. It’s a free service, or free tool, used to check the coding, or markup of your website, or blog.
All you need to do is go to their website, http://validator.w3.org/ , and type in the URL, or website address, of your website. The tool then goes through your code, and checks for errors. If it finds any errors, it will show them in a list below, and it will give you some advice on how to fix the error. If you really get stuck, copy the code, or error, nd paste it in Google, and do a search.
You can also use W3C, to validate your CSS, or Stylesheets. Here is the link to the CSS valiadator. http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
My WordPress Theme, had 6 Errors, and 1 warning. After going through the errors, and correcting the code in, My WordPress Theme, I seemed to iron out all the problems pretty quickly. The coding is now Error Free, and My WordPress Blog, now validates.
Its good practise, for any Website Designer, or Web Developer to validate their websites, or blogs. Its not something that you have to do, and there are many websites out there that still work fine, even though they have errors in their coding.
