HTML validation warnings

Post by bradleyrose » Sat Aug 24, 2019 6:31 pm

I use TIDY to validate my web sites.

This "Post a new topic" page has 33 warnings 32 of which are empty span tags and one of which is a unclosed img tag. Granted, different validtors will give differing results

It took me a while to clean up phpBB 2.0.22 with my own template to get it to validate with zero errors or warnings. Never did get subSilver to validate completely, but I did not work as hard at it. I did get the warnings down to 4 or so instead of 30+ on various pages.

I don't see a support question really.
phpBB 2.0.x is way past its bedtime and only functions with retired php versions anyway.
If you need support in upgrading, you'll find it here, but anything else is more for a forum which is focussed on phpBB 2 (http://www.phpbb2refugees.com/)
My board's not broken, it just went peculiar
