How to remove text above left sidebar

Post by clunsyman » 11 Apr 2014, 13:10

On the widget page of the wordpress dashboard I made a text widget just containing text title "5 eerst volgende activiteiten" This widget was situated between the 3th and 4th widget. However when I look at the site the text was large and bold above the left sidebar. It seems to me not a widget. In the source the code is "<h3 class="dbx-handle plain">5 eerst volgende activiteiten</h3>". I want to remove this text, however In the dashboard on the widgetpage I can't find this in any widget.
Who knows how to remove this text?

Your markup is full of errors: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http% ... 2Fservices

Errors from your posts break all page, including the sidebar. After the second post the validator gave-up: "Cannot recover after last error. Any further errors will be ignored."
Tables should be avoided for layout content, but if you use them, make sure to have all tags closed properly.

Thank you for your fast answer mr drake.
All tags are porperly closed. I think that the way of making lay out in post (<table>, <tr> and <td> tags) is obsolete. So i am now trying making tables in posts by using the plugin tablepress. The last post i already changed with tablepress. So the error of this post is disappeared. I will going along all posts on this way to remove all errors.
If that is all OK and still i can't remove the text above the sidebar I hope i can come back to you for advice.
In advanced thank you very much.

No, the tags aren't properly closed:
<td><img alt="" src="http://www.assen35.nl/images35/viertalkampioen.jpg" width="300" height="210" /><br />
<i>De kampioenen, v.l.n.r. Johannes Sijbom, Rob Bos, Joffrey Bieleman en Cees Valkenburg</td>
<p></i><br />
</tr>
<p> don't have any sense here, and </td> is added between <i> and </i>. Can be eventually something like:
<td><img alt="" src="http://www.assen35.nl/images35/viertalkampioen.jpg" width="300" height="210" /><br />
<i>De kampioenen, v.l.n.r. Johannes Sijbom, Rob Bos, Joffrey Bieleman en Cees Valkenburg</i></td>
</tr>


Tablepress also add <table>, <tr>, <td> tags - that's it, finally all things from a site will end as HTML tags. Tables should be avoided for layouts at least because they aren't so responsive.

Really a riddle for me.
When i make in the second post only table 3 (of tablepress) there is no error for this post. When I add table 4 or 5 (of tablepress) in this post i get the error of </P<>?
However in table 5 there is only following content:

Code: Select all

Het eerste team van Assen35 leverde een hele goede prestatie door maximaal te winnen van Gieten-1: 20-0. Hierdoor klommen zij van de laatste plaats naar de 3e van onderen in de Hoofdklasse en ontliep zo net de degradatie. Al met al een spannende avond! Voor uitslagen kijk op de Uitslagen/Viertallen pagina of <a title="Viertallen" href="http://www.assen35.nl/uitslagen/vt/">klik hier.</a>

So there is no <p> missing and there is no </P> needed????

Now i have only table 3 (tablepress) in the second post and now i see all 25 errors are shown (no "Cannot recover after last error" is not applicable....)

Another point is I made my posts with text next to the picure to have a nice lay out. So if tables in post are so responsive how can i make a nice lay out in posts?

If you switch to TEXT mode in Edit Post screen you will see those problematic tags. Also check the text widgets... by eg. here you have a closing </a> tag without its opening pair:
<h3 class="dbx-handle plain">Ledenstop?</h3> <div class="textwidget"><img src="http://www.assen35.nl/images35/noggeenl ... imatie.gif" width="100%" height="35"></a></div>

Errors like "The width attribute on the td element is obsolete. Use CSS instead." are not essential, they don't break the markup, it is only your problem if you use obsolete elements...

But errors like: "Stray end tag a.", "Unclosed element ul.", "End tag div seen, but there were open elements." need to be corrected, otherwise your content will be scattered all over the page, as happen with that widget.

About tables? Use div's... or simply use the functionality of WordPress editor... If you add some text in a post and then you upload an image - this image can be aligned left, or right - which mean that the text will flow around image... for what reason to add a table to do the same thing...

Drake thanks again!
I spent many hours on my website (indeed there were a lot of errors...)>> i closed all tags and removed all tables in posts and pages. Every post and page i checked with the web validator w3.
Just a few errors are still there for instance:
Validation Output: 2 Errors
Error Line 305, Column 12: End tag article seen, but there were open elements. </article><!--/post -->



Error Line 302, Column 23: Unclosed element section. <section id="comments">

To my opinion I can not change that?

So my website is rather "clean" now...

Now I come back to my original question of 11 april: How to remove text above left sidebar?
It is still there.
I hope you can advise now about this problem.

Ok, now, with a clean source I can see that the problem seems to come from your calendar widget. This is not added as a Suffusion Widget (which need to wrapped in an "aside"), but as a div injected somehow in the sidebar.
I don't know how is added this particular widget but try to disable the plugin used for calendar and take out the calendar widget to see if the problem is solved.
Check also all text widgets as you did for the posts - there is required to have all opening <...> tags closed with their pairs </...>.

YES,
If i disable the calendar plugin the text is gone!
Timely has fully renewed the calendar plugin. I think this is a problem for them. I will ask Timely.
Thanks again, I learned again a lot of you.
I am very enthousiastic of the suffusion theme.
Best Regards,
Rob
