    Hi everyone ^_^

    I am just messing around with trying to create a forum and I have multiple thing’s working including my shop etc. but when I get W3C Validator to try and validate my CSS it return’s a parse error on line 8, This is the tiny amount of CSS that it is refering to:-

    any idea’s?

    is the anchor you are applying the rules positioned in any way?
    absolute or relative position?

    What are you trying to do with that code?

    My **guess** is that you are trying to position the link/button but haven’t set a positioning attribute yet

    `absolute/fixed/relative` ?

    If you’re positioning an element like that ( it’ll need the “position:” too) then you won’t need to specify all of that… top and left should do it. Otherwise left is conflicting with right…top is conflicting with bottom.

    Unless of course these are margins and you’ve left margin off?

    A link to the full page code:-

    The sellfy button itself was provided by Sellfy UAB so I don’t know if there is an issue with that, The code is from this page:-

    http://w11.zetaboards.com/The_Render_Zone/pages/5/

    (I haven’t positioned the button in the correct place on purpose btw)

    P.S thanks for the super quick replies ^_^

    if you are vaidating the page you sent us
    the parser shows an extra semicolon from here

    just remove it after the closing bracket

    >(I haven’t positioned the button in the correct place on purpose btw)

    Then I think we’ve identified the issue.

    @Paulie_D

    the button is an external image, linked to a .js file over which I have no control, The only thing I can control is it’s position (and that took forever to work out), The parser would not have any issue with where the button is located.

    You are telling it to position it…but not in context to what.

    Also, as @iknowdavehouse mentioned, you have conflicting value.

    Can someone explain this to me step by step because I don’t really know what to do with CSS :) I know a few term’s, lingo etc. but only enough to create a very simple style sheet :)
