after getting some excellent results from iconic-one-pro 1.2 I decided to upload it to a test server to do some more detailed work.
I ran my site through the w3.org html and css validator and got a few warnings and errors.
I installed iconic-one-pro 1.2 clean again, incase any changes I’d made had caused the errors, so started with a clean wordpress 3.6 and iconic-one-pro 1.2 install and run the w3.org validator.
I got 3 failure errors from the html checker, and 6 failure errors from the style.css (I didn’t go any deeper than that).
Should default theme/css be passing the w3 validation tests ?September 7, 2013 at 1:20 pm #607
If you test with logo it should pass/validate as proper HTML5. Without logo it throws validation errors.
We got to know about the CSS errors recently, these will be fixed in the next release, we are working on it right now on a high priority basis.September 7, 2013 at 1:27 pm #608
no complaint, apologies if it came across like that.
I’ll try it with the logo, see what difference it makes.
thank you for exceptionally quick feedbackSeptember 7, 2013 at 2:38 pm #609
just checked with a logo – much closer to validation, however one failure with the logo.
Validation Output: 1 Error
Error Line 147, Column 125: Bad value category for attribute rel on element a: The string category is not a registered keyword or absolute URL.
…posts in Uncategorized” rel=”category”>Uncategorized</div> <div class=”tag…
Syntax of link type valid for and <area>:
A whitespace-separated list of link types, with no duplicate keywords in the list. Each link type must be listed as allowed on and <area> in the HTML specification, or must be listed as allowed on and <area> on the Microformats wiki, or must be an absolute URL. You can register link types on the Microformats wiki yourself.
Changing the page to the “full page” template, gets validation %100 – nice job, but the side bar has the one failure error listed above.
I’ve not had change to test the portfolio pages yet.September 7, 2013 at 3:43 pm #610
Don’t worry too much about validation errors, there is nothing wrong and it’s perfectly normal. Check this:
The rel=”category tag” is part of the rel-category microformat specification:
Note that the W3C validator tools are meant as guides, not to be taken as absolute truths. Their checks may not be up to date with the current standards that are in widespread use.

just for information, I’ve had the bug fixed in he w3 validator and the blog template also validates %100 now.
