How do I fix this? Declaration dropped.

  • # May 8, 2013 at 9:38 am

    I’m downright OCD about errors and depreceated elements when it comes to WordPress.

    I’m using FireFox’s web console and [my theme]( “”) is returning declaration dropped for box-sizing… but box-sizing is nowhere to be found in the HTML and CSS. I’d obviously be happy with a “Oh, look here!” answer. However, if you simply know how I can start narrowing down possibilities it would be helpful as I’m completely stumped.

    So you’ve declared it in a CSS file but nothing is happening…is that what you are saying?

    If not then, obviously, WP can’t “drop” something that hasn’t been declared.

    Firefox is finding box-sizing somewhere and I’m unable to locate where.

    Any link?

    is it on a specific element?

    ( “”)

    And no, I don’t see Firefox returning anything which indicates a specific element.

    Where is it finding `box-sizing` then?

    As I asked, have you declared it?

    …and if, as you say, it’s being **dropped** how can you find it?

    I’m not sure where it’s finding box-sizing; but I assume if it says the declaration is being dropped it is finding box-sizing somewhere correct?

    No it’s not finding it and I can’t find it anywhere in the CSS or source code.

    A quick google suggests it may be related to jQuery usage…

    Guess you’ll just have to deal.

    Could just be a bug. Could be in a script that you’re using? No idea.
