Hi,

I have HTML and CSS validators on each of my pages. They only check the
front page lately. But the error happens when clicking on validator on
each page.

https://www.dalekelly.org/


CSS validator icon doesn't show up on my page but when I click on its
empty space "Valid CSS!" text shows up and then it goes to a page saying
"Connection timed out" Error Code 522

Same errors with Chrome/Edge as with Chrome

HTML validator icon shows up on my page and works.

Here are the codes ...


<a href="https://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
src="https://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-html401" alt="Valid HTML 4.01
Strict" height="31" width="88"></a>

<a href="https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer"><img
style="border:0;width:88px;height:31px"
src="https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss-blue" alt="Valid
CSS!" ></a>


Also, how can I edit these so they go back to checking each separate
page and not just the front page?

You are using the icons wrong. They are labels that you add to tell the
user the page is valid. There is not any reason for a user to check your
code.

The links are INVALID. Try <<www.htmlvalidator.com>> (there a free
version) to see your link errors.

If I use the link to the CSS validator icon in my browser, outside of
the full code, it shows up after awhile ...

https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss-blue

The HTML icon shows up right away ...

If you want to make sure, your website is valid, then just check it.
There is no need to put these logos on your site. Also if a page may not
be valid any longer because you did some changes and f

Seems the service is down - at least at the time when I checkd it:

<https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/jigsaw.w3.org?proto=https>

You can't. Referrers are not sent to other domains any longer for
security reasons, so "tracking pixels" which record from which domain
the image was requested are no longer possible.

Therefore <https://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer> will not work any
longer because it relies on the browser to send a referer which will not
happen.

If you want to have a logo for the current page you either need to add
the URL like this:

<https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dalekelly.org%2Fimages.html>

Or you need to use server side scripting like PHP to generate the URL
based on the current query like this:

<a
href="https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=<?php
echo urlencode($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
?>"><img
src="https://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-html401"
alt="Valid HTML 4.01 Strict"
height="31"
width="88"></a>

Here the whole part I forgot:

Also if a page may not be valid any longer because you did some changes
and forgot to check it again, it may be confusing to have a logo which
claims "valid HTML" eventhough the page is not valid. So you should
avoid using these logos in general and just do the checks for your own.

Thank You for your thorough responses!


I removed the validators from my 26 *.html pages.

Validated them on ...

https://www.w3.org/

... before uploading.


https://www.dalekelly.org/weblog.html

and ...

https://www.dalekelly.org/degree.html

... have some errors


my CSS has gone back to validating as before this whole thing happened

https://www.dalekelly.org/mystyle.css


Still having the same Chrome scroll bar issues that I don't have with Edge.

Thank You again!
