Error Messages in New Blogger Templates.

New Blogger Templates are coded in XHTML which is based on XML. XHTML is a much stricter language than HTML and you will encounter more error messages while working on the new templates...........

USING OLD BLOGGER TEMPLATE. The commonest mistake made is pasting a HTML old blogger template into the Edit Template text box. The error message given when you attempt to Preview or save a HTML template is :

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The content of elements must consist of well-formed character data or markup.

This error message is given because HTML templates are not "well formed". HTML templates are incompatible with the new blogger unless you have chosen to retain the Classic template AFTER migrating to the new Blogger. Going from old blogger to the new blogger is a two step process with the second step being optional. The first step is when the blog is migrated to the new blogger along with the old HTML template also called the Classic Template. The second step is UPGRADATION to the new template as outlined in theIntroduction.




WHEN THERE IS NO MATCHING END TAG : In XHTML every tag should have a matching end tag. If there is a end tag missing you will get the following error message :

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The element type "div" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "

Matching end tags are </div> for <div>.

This error is most frequently seen when adding Metatags. Make sure that all your metatags in the new templates end with a forward slash.
All tags should be closed using a forward slash. If there are empty tags then they should be closed by putting a space before the forward slash. For example : <br />. Empty elements are those not enclosing anything between the opening and closing tags. For example :
<img src="valid.gif" />.



USING THE CHARACTER "&". When using ampersand within an attribute value it should always be written using a m p; (without the spaces) and not simply an & character. If this is not done you will get the following error message :

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The reference to entity "key" must end with the ';' delimiter.

OR THIS

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make
sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in
the entity reference.


For example this is incorrect: <title>Boys & Girls</title> while this is
correct: <title>Boys &a m p; Girls</title>. Omit the spaces between a m p. Do this in links also.




In XHTML, the script and style elements are declared as having #PCDATA content. As a result, < and & will be treated as the start of markup, and entities such as < and &a m p ; will be recognized as entity references by the XML processor to < and & respectively. Wrapping the content of the script or style element within a CDATA marked section avoids the expansion of these entities. The only delimiter that is recognized in a CDATA is the "]]>" string which ends the CDATA section



IF AN ATTRIBUTE IS MISSING. Every attribute must have a value. Every attribute value should be enclosed in double quotes. For example : <table rows="2">. If not you will get following error message :

One of the sections is missing the required id attribute. Every section should have a unique id.



IMPROPERLY NESTING ELEMENTS. (elements must be closed in reverse order). This is incorrect: <em><strong>Include some text.</em></strong>. While this is correct:<em><strong>Include is some text.</strong></em>.



SPECIFY ALTERNATE TEXT FOR IMAGES using the alt attribute. For example : <img src="URL OF IMAGE">ALT. TEXT FOR IMAGE</img>(XHTML 2.0)



CASE MATTERS! In XHTML case matters. If you have <HTML> then you must close it with </HTML>. If instead you close it with </html> you will get the following error :

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The element type "HTML" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "".




VARIABLE DECLARATIONS
: These variables are used in the Fonts and Colors subtab of the Template tab to enable the blogger to customize the fonts and colors of his template. These variable are defined in the "Variable definitions" part of the template. They are then used in the appropriate css code. For example a variable is defined as :

<variable name="bgColor" description="Page Background Color" type="color" default="#efefef" value="#ffff66">

In that part of the css which describes the body it is used as follows :

body {
background: $bgColor;
}

If you use a variable ($rightSbColor) in the CSS but do not define it in the VARIABLE DEFINITIONS section you will get the following error :

Invalid variable declaration in page skin: Variable is used but not defined. Input: rightSbColor

The solution is to delete the variable or define it in the Variable Definitions section.


SAME WIDGET ID ERROR : If you add a widget or Page Element with the same ID Number as a widget already present in the template you will get the following error :

More than one widget was found with id: LinkList1. Widget IDs should be unique.

To correct the error just change the number in the widget ID. In this case change it to LinkList2.


ADDING CODE BEFORE THE INCLUDABLE : If you add a line of code before the includable line in an expanded widget template you will get the following error :

The widget with id "Blog1" cannot contain element: "b:if". A widget can only contain b:includable elements

To prevent this always add any code after this line <b:includable id='main'> in the widget code.


WIDGETS SHOULD ALWAYS BE WITHIN A SECTION : If you add a widget before the section line in a template you will get the following error :

The widget with id HTML1 is not within a section (actual parent element is: b:if.) Every widget should be in a section.

To prevent this add the widget code after this line in the template :

<b:section class='sidebar' id='sidebar' preferred='yes'>


LINK ERROR : Following error is seen :

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make
sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The value of attribute "href" associated with an
element type "a" must not contain the '<' character.

when you have in your template code of this type :

<a href="<data:post.url/>">Read more!</a>

To correct this error change the code to the following :

<a expr:href='data:post.url'>Read more!</a>


Similarly this code :

<span class="<data:post.author/>">
<data:post.body/>
</span>

will give this error :

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please
make sure that all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The value of attribute "class" associated with an
element type "span" must not contain the '<' character.

So change it to :

<span class="data:post.author">
<data:post.body/>
</span>


ENCLOSE ATTRIBUTE VALUES IN QUOTES : Attribute values should always be enclosed in quotes otherwise you will get this error :

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute "width" associated with an element type "img".

Instead of width=56 always use width='56' within code. It does nort matter ehether the quotes are double or single.



DO NOT INCLUDE TWO STYLE SHEETS
If you include two b:skin tags in the template you wiil get this error


We were unable to save your template
Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.
There should be one and only one skin in the template, and we found: 2

Your blog is amazing! Great help for all of us who are beggining to deal with xhtml. Thanks a lot. Keep up the good work.

Bananeman said...

When I use the following code:

<a expr:href='data:post.url'>Read more!</a>

Blogger gives me a big error page and my blog stops working.

Any ideas?

Bananeman

Can you send me the error message? The email address is in the blog left column.

duoduo said...

hey any idea how to solve this problem? please help!!

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute "border" associated with an element type "table".

vin said...

duoduo
You must be inserting code for a table with borders in the template. The size of the border is to be enclosed in quotes. See second-last error message in post above.

Your Javascript code is missing some quotes. See "ENCLOSE ATTRIBUTE VALUES IN QUOTES" this error above. ALSO DO NOT TRY TO PASTE HTML templates into the new XHTML layouts as they are incompatible

LL said...

Thanks a lot for this post, very useful because I don't understand anything of this new blogger !

But I can't use the code , is it normal ?

LL,
The code is in XHTML. If you paste HTML there it will give errors.

Holly said...

Hi, I get this error, what should I do:

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: XML document structures must start and end within the same entity.

vin said...

Holly,
What were you trying to do? What code did you add? Do not add HTML templates here as they are incompatible with the new layouts.

jus.me said...

Hi,
When you say HTML templates are not compatible with the new layouts, does it mean thst blogger main templates from blogskins.com cannot be used?
I'm also facing an error while changing my template. It says:
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Element type "content" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".
Any help in solving this problem? I'll appreciate it! Thanks!

vin said...

jus.me,
If a template is in HTML it is incompatible regardless of its originating website. For any difficulties you can email me directly. The address is in the left column.

Look for the word 'language' in your template and if it is followed by an equal to sign and an attribute like 'English' enclose the attribute in double quotes.

Creative_Clan said...

I want to add kontera code in my blog but the error

More than one widget was found with id: HTML4. Widget IDs should be unique.

Can you help me how to insert kontera code in the right manner without error. thanks

www.bloggingrevenue.blogspot.com

vin said...

Creative_Clan,

When you get such an error scroll down in the template code box and look for widget code lines in the unexpanded template which looks like this :

<b:widget id='HTML4' locked='false' type='HTML'/>

There should be two lines having 'HTML4' in them. Change the number in one of the lines to 5 or 6 or 7. Click on Preview button to see if error persists. Increase number till error goes away.

As for Kontera paste the code at the bottom of the template just before the </body> tag.

vienna said...

I've got the same
"Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly."
error as everyone,so I searched for solutions and tried working it out by reverting it back to Classic Template after I applied a Blogskin. But Then,it'll erase/overrides everything in my blog (Posts gone,Cbox gone,link gone) All that's left is the wallpaper of the Blogskin I chose. Pls help =) btw,great site!

vin said...

Vienna,

You have to FIRST revert to Classic template and THEN apply a Classic blogskin. What is your blog address?

You should also backup blog, template and Page Source before changing templates.

fes said...

Hey Vin,

I put some adsense on my blog, and a web poll from bravenet, and now I want to take the poll off, but it keeps giving me the same error.

"XML: The end-tag for element type "b:section" must end with a '>' delimiter."

I can't do anything.. Can you help me? If you need the complete code I'll copy for you!

Thanks for everything

fes said...

ok.. I'm sorry for sending so many emails asking stuff, but I just find out and I have made it! The weird thing.. alone!
Thanks for your support anyway! This is a great blog!

:) Thank you a lot
fes

vin said...

Fes,

Login to Blogger.com and click on Layout link on Dashboard. Then click Edit link in the Poll widget.

In popup window click Remove. Do not attempt to remove or put in widgets from the Edit Html subtab of Template tab.

Add and remove widgets from Page Elements subtab of template tab.

Cyndi McKenna said...

I just installed a new XML template and was getting the Error for NO MATCHING END TAG and found this blog. Helpful, but didnt' solve my issue. I was perplexed as it appeared the end tag WAS there in my original download.

My solution was simple and might apply to other error codes:
1. Edit Template
2. Backup Template
3. Check the box by Expand Widget Templates.
4. Make your changes.
5. Then save.

With the widgets NOT expanded, it looks like blogger can't see that the end tags were in fact there!

Hello Vin,

Thanks in advance...

Jax,

Are you trying to paste a Classic Template into Layouts?

Revert blog to Classic Template before doing the above.

jax said...

hi vin, jax again. in response to your response, i am pretty sure I am NOT trying to download a classic template into layout. i am doing step-by-step exactly what the website (the one i got the layout from...www.suckmylolly.com) tells me.
Please help, i love this layout!
Thanks again

Vin said...

Jax,

Do not cut and paste code. Instead go to Layout---->Edit Html tab---->Click Browse button.

Navigate to the XML template file you have downloaded and select it and click Open.

Then click Upload button.

Mike said...

trying to download a third party template/layout and getting this error messgae:

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The value of attribute "content" associated with an element type "null" must not contain the '<' character.

can you help?
Thank you

Vin said...

Mike,

Where did you download the template from? Is it a Classic or a Layout template?

If it is a Classic Template you have to revert blog to classic template first and then load the template.

Mike said...

Hi Vin,
How do I know if it's classic or layout? I got the layout from
http://blogger-templates-directory.blogspot.com/2006/09/abstract-thoughts.html
hope this helps,
thanks again

Vin said...

Mike,

It is a Classic Template. You cannot load it on a Layouts blog.

You have to revert blog to Classic Template first and then load it.

Mike said...

Hi again Vin,
We have reverted to classic and uploaded. the new problem is, the template header has taken pride of place, rather than my header.
here's my page...
mikeskitchensink.blogspot.com
i don't want abstract thoughts there - i would like it replaced with The Kitchen Sink.
Is this possible or do i need to pick a new layout?

vin said...

Mike,

The CSS part of the template is same in Classic and Layout templates.

Add the header image in the CSS part of the template.

What is the exact error message?

Anonymous said...

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute "{1}" associated with an element type "border".

what should I do?

Vin said...

Anonymous,

Open the Template you are pasting in Wordpad. Use Edit--->Find to search for 'border'. There wwill be a '1' in that code line. Put it in quotes or make the border line like this :

border:1px solid;

Save template.

Parry Particulars said...

I am having the same problem as someone who previously posted, but after following your instructions, I'm still struggling. My error message is "Open quoe is expecgted for attribute "{1]}" associated with an element type "border".

So I have looked for each time border is in my code but most of the times border is in my code it looks like this: border:1px solid $bordercolor;

How should this line look?

Thank you so much

Vin said...

Parry Particulars,

No point in looking for 'border' AFTER getting the error message since you would be looking at the normal ORIGINAL template of your blog.

Instead search for it in the new template which you are pasting in.

Caz said...

I started my blog today & not sure what I did but I no longer have the tab to change the layout. I have a tab that says 'template' but I want to change the font colours etc like I could before. How can I get it back to how it was? I am a novice to this & have no idea about HTML or such like!

Vin said...

Caz,

Have a look at Interchanging Layouts and Templates.

Are you trying to paste/load a Classic template?

See differences in Classic and Layout Templates.

How to deal with this error?

We were unable to preview your template
Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The element type "STYLE" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "".

Vin said...

karina,

Your blog has the Classic Template.

Upgrade to Layout templates first.

Then load a Layout template.

Do not load a Layout template directly over a Classic template or you will get the error.

Backup Classic template before upgrading to Layouts.

Vivek said...

hello,

I am converting one wp theme to blogger but I am getting following problem, i try to solve it but not able to find the actual piece.

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute "{1}" associated with an element type "class".

Vin said...

Vivek,

Do a Edit---->Find for the word 'class' in the template. This is the wrong code which causes the error :

<b:section class= header...

or :

<b:section class='header....

Below is the corrected code :

<b:section class='header'......

Vivek said...

hey vin , thanks for help ,

but after this one very odd thing happening , infact first time seeing this,

what ever i put between
< div id='Navbarleft.....


/div >

remain there till i save it, after I save it got deleted or disappeared. I don't know whats the problem, may you might aware (or new blogger bug ? )

Take a look at

http://testingnewthemes.blogspot.com/

I am trying to add linklist in in Navbarleft (other side of searchbox)

also , I am not able to change position of widgets dynamically (up and down) in main sidebar, i can re-arrange position in left and right sidebar.

any idea , how to correct it ?

Vin said...

Vivek,

There is no < before /div >

In the Template code box you can cut out the whole line of widget code and paste it lower down/upper to rearrange widgets.

padding: -18px 0px 0px 0px;
font-weight: bold;
}

Vivek said...

If so you have to Revert Blog to Classic Template first.

Vin said...

Gee,

Try posting a comment on that page or contacting the designer if there is an email address somewhere on the site.

Molar said...

So for the div, the slash must be in front of it and a bracket must be behind it even if it was in the same bracket as other things before?

Molar said...

But if everything is not 'closed properly', won't I have to close everything?

Won't that actually take very long?

Vin said...

Molar,

Which code are you modifying and to what? Give more details.

Hafiz said...
