Verifying Custom HTML Using the HTML Validator Tool in Quick Shopping Cart
Quick Shopping Cart® supports the use of custom XHTML on select pages to allow greater customization and optimization of your storefront and catalog. To verify that your HTML has been coded correctly and is XHTML compliant, use the HTML Validator to check it.
You are not required to validate your code. However, by confirming that your code is XHTML compliant, the HTML Validator prevents potential display problems on your storefront. For more information about XHTML, visit the XHTML Tutorial on the W3 Schools website.
The following pages allow custom HTML:
- About Us Page
- Contact Us Page
- Invoice Customization
- Storefront Header Page
- Storefront Footer Page
- Welcome Message
- Edit Category
- Product Editor
You can also add widget to the area along the side of you online store, which displays content you create with HTML. For more information, see Managing Widgets in Quick Shopping Cart.
The HTML Validator automatically checks your code when importing your .XLS product catalog, which may contain custom HTML, through the Update Products page. If the Validator detects any XHTML errors in the file, the error information displays on the page. We recommend that you make the suggested changes, save the file, and then re-upload it.
You can proceed through the warnings to post your file containing the non-compliant XHTML code. However, we recommend that you resolve any errors before posting content that could break your shopping cart display.
