Just noticed that the newly deployed Fresh theme claims to validate XHTML 1.0 Strict, but fails on the Pages (as opposed to posts) as a result of declaring two elements – the post wrapper <div> and the <h2> for the title – with the same id.
The theme is approx a year old, so I’m kind of surprised that no one else has mentioned it. Wondering if that makes me particularly perceptive. Or particularly compulsive? Or, horrors, particularly wrong?
I have posted a comment for iLEMONed, the theme author. In meantime, I have hacked my local copy with an obvious tweak.
2009-08-20, Update: No response from iLEMONed. Oh well, mine is hacked. and validates.
Now to tackle the invalid CSS produced by one of the plugins.
Finally got around to redeploying papayasoft.com as a WordPress blog. Easier to admin and I really like the Fresh theme, originally by Wolfgang Bartelme, ported to WordPress by iLEMONed. It had exactly the color scheme I had in mind and only needed a few minor tweaks.
Sure, had to deal with all the plugin installation and configuration. And had to move at least some of the content from the old pages into new WordPress pages. But really, all pretty modest.
I will be chasing my web host to see if he can enable some kind of CGI-wrap that (like Pair.com employs) so that PHP can run as the account owner. Then, I would be able to use the WordPress auto-update process for both the core system and for plugins. It makes a huge difference in ease of use.
[ Update 2009-07-17: Host reports it's coming. Excellent. ]
More tweaks required, of course. After all, a website is never done.
Now just need to find the time to actually write.
