Ticket #934 (fixed enhancement)

HTML5 validation

  • Created: 2013-12-21 09:10:16
  • Reported by: philwareham
  • Assigned to: quy
  • Milestone: 1.5.6
  • Component: markup
  • Priority: normal

We use FluxBB with a HTML5 doctype and it throws a couple of validation errors in the W3C Validator. These are relatively trivial to fix I think, so I'll list them here...

1. The 'cellspacing' attribute is obsolete and should be replaced with 'border-collapse' CSS rule. So remove any reference of cellspacing="0" from the markup and put a border-collapse:0; rule in the CSS for table tag.

2. On the 'Jump to' menu you've wrapped both the 'select' and the 'submit' inside a 'label' tag. A label tag can only contain one form element as a child, so I suggest you pull the submit button out of the label wrap, or pull both out and use the 'for' attribute to link the label to the select.
