I'm still getting w3c validator errors. Most are from the social media plugin, and the rest still seem to be a result of the doctype. One is from one of the widgets. Any ideas lgro?
Errors related to html tag and meta with encoding could be fixed by (I've edited header.php on sandbox)

Code: Select all

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US">
and

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
google +1 related errors are fixed too - I needed to change the way of rendering that button, because plugin uses (probably) HTML5 tags. There are some errors with facebook and twitter buttons but I working on fix.

There are also 2 errors in CSS.
best regards,
Lukasz

What's your opinion on the social media widgets on the OpenMW site? The Like and +1 and Tweet buttons?

Fixed the CSS errors. All of the w3c stuff is fixed now except the social media plugin and the search widget. See:

I have no problem with twitter. Goggle+ is also okay-ish (though I wouldn't use it myself). Facebook should be avoided whenever possible. I don't think a simple button is much of a problem though. If you guys want to keep it, that is okay for me.

Again, my vote is to get rid of it. I see absolutely no benefit, and plenty of negative things about it.

All buttons are fixed, but I don't mind if you want to remove FB (I don't use FB).

// EDIT:
There is one error:

Code: Select all

there is no attribute "role"
<form role="search" method="get" id="searchform" action="http://sandbox.openmw.…
but its related to search button and wordpress:

// EDIT2: form-role problem is temporary fixed, but I need to remember to correct Wordpress file every update :\
best regards,
Lukasz

Well, these buttons look kinda ugly. Their design is rather alien, if you see it in the context of the design of the site.

As for usefulness, I don't know. Maybe people will find them somewhat useful. I don't have a strong opinion on this matter.

This can be fixed though, check the link I posted: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/form-role

I mean we can leave it with the error if that's what you want, but it is fixable. :/

OK, so form-role is temporary fixed. Zini, sir_herrbatka, others? How about layout, do you think it's OK, or something should be changed/added? Could this layout be moved to main site?
best regards,
Lukasz
