Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet.. Anyone ?

Post by nikos »

I have a forum with 4000 registered users, 8000 posts...

I clicked to see this one post a few minutes ago and I got this

The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.


End tag 'head' does not match the start tag 'meta'. Error processing resource 'http://XXXXXXXX/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1519'. Line 75, Position 3


I tried 3-4 times, kept getting the same message..

Finally I logged out and then logged back in and the error message was gone... I have the latest version...

Any ideas what happened?

This has something to do with the template you're using at your board. Have you tried using another template?

Go into overall_header.tpl

find this:

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
and change it to

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"/>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css"/>
I'm directing that at krustyx, though, it should be the same problem for you both.

Oh and krusty...go into the same file...change

Code: Select all

<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/iCGstation/iCGstation.css" type="text/css" -->

Code: Select all

<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/iCGstation/iCGstation.css" type="text/css"/>
Eat recycled food. It's good for the environment and OK for you.

I'm using the FISUBICE theme and been getting the same issues. Tried the things above and still had the issue. And I keep getting the error about the white space not being allowed.

Well, by accident, while doing something else, I was in my CSS file and stumbled across a tag in the HEADER data area of the CSS file and found this


I deleted the entire comment of WHITESPACE:NONE and I haven't had a problem since. COuld be total coincidence or it could be the solution. But for now, my site is rocking again and I haven't seen in XML or XSL error since.

I hope this is the solution and all of you put down the gun, take the rope down from the ceiling fans, put away the blades, and your sites start working properly for you too.
