dreamweaver keeps putting the text i'm writing in /div tags just below the body tag repeated and cropped at random with weird spacing it does it at random points, once after saving, once when I went to highlight other text. here is the html code it's spewing just below the body tag, it pulled it from the div  i was working on and repeated it. BUGGGY. I moved back to my 2019 version.

 

<!doctype html>
<html lang="zxx">

So, you are usimng someone else's template to create an e-Bay page.

BenPleysier_0-1639709393246.png

 

and you think that Dreameweaver will automatically help you with that.

 

I guess you found out the hard way that this can never be the case. Normal coding rules should apply at all times.

 

In other words, it is not Dreamweaver delivering garbage, it is the person using Dreameweaver and a 3rd party template.

I'm an experienced coder who has used dreamweaver for 20+ years back when it was owned by a much superior run company called macromedia. I'm using a free template that generates Ebay compliant code html that I created on their website. What master coding rule am I breaking that causes typing in a division to spit out random text at the top of body tag. I moved back to dreamweaver 2019. 

You seem pretty smug behind your keyboard and mouse. But hey thats what trolls do.

1. the blue coloured part is plain text, no html elements and no style rules.
2, the green coloured part is OK, although it would have been better if the META tag was placed in the HEAD section.
3. the red coloured part falls outside of the document and will be ignored.
 
This also applied 20+ years ago.
 
As a side note, I do speak fluent German and Dutch, a little (Canadian) French and Spanish. I do best best when speaking English. I also have numerous coding languages under the belt and I get annoyed when a so called coder blames a mere text editor for their erorrs.

An experienced coder indeed... 😦  Your HTML syntax is pure poison. ☠️

 

If you don't believe me, just run your code through the W3C online validation service.  

https://validator.w3.org/

 

============

SPOILER ALERT

============

Your code contains so many critical errors,  the validation service choked on it at Fatal Error #8: unrecoverable😷

 

Time to go back to the drawing board and learn proper code syntax.  I guarantee you'll have a better experience after you clean up your code.

Okay maybe I was confusing.  The code in question your calling it blue was generated by the adobe software, this is not my original html, this is something adobe created while I was cleaning up the template generated code, simply typing simple text in a div tag. It randomly generated it. If you saying that I can't cut and paste a template into Dreamweaver and clean it up and move on, then I guess it's not the software for me.Yeah, I know it's unrecoverable, but I didn't create it. Simply trying to edit it produced what  Dreamweaver did.  Holy crap you guys get on your high horses fast. Even though you guys were less than welcoming to this forum, perhaps there are others out there having issues similar to this.

Dreamweaver does not randomly create anything. It is the coder that creates.

 

I thought I would have a quick test at using the template. Please have a look at the following.

@sams3011030,

You're missing the elephant in the room.   Bad code in the document spawns more bad code which in turn spawns more bad code... ad infinitum... until it becomes an unruly mess that can't be worked with.  That's where you are now.

 

No code editor on the planet can be expected to resolve so many critical code errors and do it correctly.   Dreamweaver is merely a tool.  Used correctly, it works very well.  But tools don't make great websites, people do.

 

Pounding sand and cursing the darkness is no solution. The only solution is to start over with clean code.  Endeavor to keep code error-free  -- denoted by a green checkmark  -- while you're working.  If you see a red X, stop what you're doing.  Check the output panel and fix your code errors.  Rinse, lather and repeat.

There's nothing more to say on this topic except goodbye and best of luck with your project.
