Validation issue with Coppermine link
« on: October 02, 2009, 06:19:59 pm »

Hi,

I've tried to search the documentation and these forums but haven't found anything about this.

I'm having a little validation issue with the 'Powered by Coppermine Photo Gallery' link.

Here's what W3C says:
Error  Line 442, Column 23: invalid comment declaration: found name character outside comment but inside comment declaration

<!--- pakolkifooter ---><div class="footer" align="center" style="padding-top: 1

I'm guessing this maybe because of changes to my template to incorporate the gallery into the look and feel of my website.  The gallery is here http://www.oceanviewfarms.net/gallery/ and I've attached my edited template if that helps.

I'm still working on the other validation issues, just trying to knock off one at a time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That comment is not a part of Coppermine. Either fix it (2 dashes) or just remove it.

Thanks Nibbler,

I totally agree that's what needs to be done.  What perplexes me is what or where would have caused that comment to be inserted.  From what I can tell it appears to be coming from within the {GALLERY} token.  The 
Code: [Select]
<br/> below is the beginning of my custom footer and I'm under the impression everything immediately before that comes directly from {GALLERY} token

Code: [Select]
<!-- End standard table -->

        <img src="images/spacer.gif" width="1" height="7" border="" alt="" /><br />
<!--- pakolkifooter ---><div class="footer" align="center" style="padding-top: 10px;">Powered by <a href="http://coppermine-gallery.net/" title="Coppermine Photo Gallery" rel="external">Coppermine Photo Gallery</a></div>
            </td>           
          </tr>
        </table>
      </td>

    </tr>
  </table>

<br />


FWIW, I'm not trying to be a PITA and I realize this may be a sensitive issue because of the proximity to the 'Powered by..." link, I'd be happy to provide you with FTP credentials to my gallery directory, if that would in any way help.

I guess, I 'll eventually get by even if this doesn't validate, we're certainly very pleased how well Coppermine integrates with our site,  just trying to do what I can.

Much thanks again.

Download the entire gallery to your hard drive, then perform a search for the string in question. If you're on Windows, the field "Search for files or folder named" should be populated with
Quote
*.php;*.htm*;*.js
and the field "Containing text" should be populated with
Quote
pakolkifooter
. That's what we'd have to do as well if we had access to your page. As Nibbler already told you, that string is not part of coppermine and we therefore have no clue where it comes from. Might be the case that your site was hacked. Impossible to say. The last time I have read about the word "pakolkifooter" was when I googled for it a minute ago, and guess where it sent me to? To a thread where another user reported to have been hacked. And guess what: that thread even contains the instructions what that user had to do to solve his issues. Applies to you as well.

P.S. It's not a bright idea to post your email address on a public board. All this does will attract email harvesters and result in more spam in your inbox. It won't help you, as there is no support by email anyway.
