BUG: CSS comments are parsed RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1491546438 posted

    I have used the seo analysis tool on my site and it picked up some missing files.

    When investigating which pages were causing the problem I found that the URL was in a commented section of my CSS.


    /* background-image: url(graphics/loader.gif); */

    This means that the file "graphics/loader.gif" is not exists and the tool is not good. But you could delete the commented section.

    Thanks for letting us know, it is indeed a bug in the Beta 1 release since we are parsing comments within a CSS Declaration. Note that if the comment is outside a CSS declaration we will exclude it. for example:

    /* this comment will be ignored */

    .someclassname { /* wont be ignored */ }

    Thanks, I will have to wait for it to get fixed as the stylesheet is an embedded object inside a control that we use and which we don't have the source code for.
