HTML code validation is an important part of ensuring ADA compliance of your website. All web pages must have complete start and end tags, be nested according to their specifications, not contain duplicate attributes, and IDs must be unique. To ensure ADA compliance, use our free html validation plugin to identify and correct validation errors in your pages. The pro extension may be used to correct many of HTML validation issues automatically.
HTML Validation Basic
The HTML Validation Plugin runs in the background, identifies and reports HTML validation errors on your website.
Once activated, the HTML Validation plugin uses WordPress cron to scan your website content in the background. A progress bar on the report screen indicates scan progress.
Posts may also be scanned using the Validate HTML link provided on the “All Posts” screen.
The HTML Validation Basic plugin is free and available on WordPress.org.
HTML Validation PRO
The HTML Validation Pro extension adds options to automatically correct many HTML Validation issues found on your website. This one of a kind plugin could save you hundreds of hours of work finding and correcting HTML validation issues.
Once enabled you will find a “Content Filters” tab on the plugin settings page. Simply select the issues to be automatically corrected. As your website is rechecked you will find the issues in your error log disappearing.
How does the HTML Validation plugin work?
It sends the URL of your page or post to the Validator.nu API to verify that you have valid HTML code. The returned errors are stored in an easy to read report with links to full validation results. Once the issue is corrected simply click the recheck link next to the error to verify that the problem has been resolved.
