[Solved]: Make coppermine pass WAI validation
« on: May 28, 2008, 07:34:46 pm »

Hi there...
I'm trying to get coppermine to pass validation on WebAGoGo...

My theme validates fine as far as W3C XHTML and CSS standards go, but there are some <b> tags that make my gallery fail..

Now, i opened the whole of the Coppermine files and did a search-replace for <b> elements and changed them to <strong>.

My number of errors dropped to the point that i now only have 1 line of code that fails the automated validation, and is the one that says
"278 files in 23 albums and 4 categories with 0 comments viewed 3483 times"
the files, albums, categories and comments words are all tagged with the <b>, and i can't figure out where this function is called to change the code (my one and only guess is include/ but that didn't do it)

My gallery sits

If you view the source, and do a search for the <b> tag you'll see exactly the table row where this is happening...

Can anyone help??

Thanks a lot... it was my error... since when i was doing the search and replace function i didn't have the lang folder on my local pc...
(i didn't assume that languages would make a difference for this).

Well it seems that assumptions are the mother of all f*ckups (as we say here in my work) :))

Thanks again!
