Batch validator problem on one particular site

Postby Erin Paseka » Fri Sep 04, 2009 3:52 pm

I've got a weird problem: I can't get the batch validator to work its magic on http://www.unl.edu/postdoc/. It seems to handle our other sites just fine, but not that one.

If I put that URL into http://validator.unl.edu/batch and click Validate, the resulting page tells me to click "Start" but there is no Start, just a status bar stuck at 0%.

If I click the Validate (all) button, the status bar changes to 100%, but clicking for results just takes me back to the 0% version.

If I try the "if that doesn't work" legacy option and click "Revalidate (all)", I just get this:

This may take some time. Patience is a virtue.

Searching for sublinks now.

... but that's all. The browser says Done in the corner and doesn't even pretend to be doing anything. Same in IE 7 & FF 3.5.2.

Anybody know who maintains the validator?

Validator

This is the problem page:
http://www.unl.edu/postdoc/current/directory.shtml

There are other validation errors, but its this link thats causing it to crash, an href pointing to an email without the 'mailto:' protocol in front of it.

Code: Select all
<a href="ctopliff2@unlnotes.unl.edu">Christina L Topliff</a>


Should be:
Code: Select all
<a href="mailto:ctopliff2@unlnotes.unl.edu">Christina L Topliff</a>

Thanks, that "mailto" cleared it right up!

It's surprising that something like that will choke the validator, instead of just making the page show up as Invalid in the results.
