Validation errors because of nested Less?

Recommended Posts

  1. I'm trying to track down these two errors.  What's the best way to approach that?  I think one is because of less nesting but not sure about the other. 
  3. error.png Line 566, Column 28Element ul not allowed as child of element ul in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)
    					<ul class="media-list">
    Contexts in which element ul may be used: Where flow content is expected. Content model for element ul: Zero or more li and script-supporting elements.
  4. error.png Line 572, Column 58Duplicate ID the_default_widget_latest.
    		<li id="the_default_widget_latest" class="span3 widget">

This has nothing to do with LESS, the issue is with the HTML that you have likely added or a plugin has added.


For example, as far as I am aware #1 means that you have added some HTML inside a <ul> that is not wrapped in a <li>...</li> like so:



<a href="">Hello</a>



The above is not valid. You can see this by using the HTML validator and adding the following, which will give you the same error.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
<a href="">Hello</a>
#2 - This is self explanatory and means that two elements have the same ID.
Both of these issues are not DMS related.

I'll take another look but these both seemed to be coming from a media box with an image and text in them.  I'll look again.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
