Since I have it installed, I have 15 new errors in my html.
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...heel-planet.de
Currently I´m only using your random garage module.
I seems to have no alt tag.
required attribute "alt" not specified
Here is my error report:
Validation Output: 15 Errors

1. Error Line 74, Column 2806: required attribute "alt" not specified

…ge/users/1/1000t.jpg" align="middle"> <br /> <span class="smallfont"><b>Meine



The attribute given above is required for an element that you've used, but you have omitted it. For instance, in most HTML and XHTML document types the "type" attribute is required on the "script" element and the "alt" attribute is required for the "img" element.

Typical values for type are type="text/css" for <style> and type="text/javascript" for <script>.
2. Error Line 74, Column 2807: end tag for "img" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified

…e/users/1/1000t.jpg" align="middle"> <br /> <span class="smallfont"><b>Meine



You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".

Kolbi,
This doesn't look like an alt tag issue since but instead appears that there is broken tags in the html stream. Can you turn the module back on but set it so that only one garage is displayed? Once that is one please view source, save the contents of that to a file, and attach it to a reply here. I'll take a look at that and see if I can reproduce the problem.

Thanks!

Mark

Okay the Random Garage is now active.
http://www.2-wheel-planet.de/
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...heel-planet.de
The issue only appear, if the chosen garage has a picture.

So you have to reload the page or the validator check a few times to get one with a picture and the reported issues.

Kolbi,
When I use the validator link I'm seeing other errors from this page that don't appear to be related to the module. If you turn off the module do all these go away?

At the minimum I'm not seeing display errors using my browser...only XHTML validation errors. Are you seeing some type of browser display problem?

Thanks!

Mark

Currently I have 194 errors because of the new vbseo upgrade.
But before upgrading I had 15 issues because of your random garage module.
Before installing it and then it is turned off there are no xhtml errors.

Display errors are not caused. Only xhtml validation errors.

OK...just wanted to clarify.

Since the Garage templates aren't XHMTL compliant yet I would suspect that you will also receive validation errors when viewing any user's garage page.

I'll add the alt tags to the vba module templates and send you a copy to test. Can you PM me with your email address so I can send them directly to you? If the testing looks good on your end I'll update the version distributed.

Thanks

Mark

As I mentioned in the other thread if you refer to our online help (found in your Garage menu or on our site under Support >> Documentation) and look under the Administrator >> vBadvanced CMPS Modules section it provides information on installation and configuration.

Thanks!

Mark

No. It only supports one featured garage at a time. Also, in the 1.2.0 version of Garage Plus the system now auto-selects the garage of the day, week, month and, if you don't like the one it picks, there is an interface provided so you can select another.

Garage Plus 1.2 already includes a new XHTML compliant template for the featured garage as well as automatic, system based means of selecting the featured garage to display using the template. In the next few weeks I'll release the free version of Garage which will be fully phrased and XHTML compliant.

Thanks!

Mark
