Improper Validation: Why Won’t My Widgets Validate?
What Do You Mean By Fixed CSS?
When we say “Fixed CSS“, we are referring to CSS that you cannot easily change. In the case of Facebook & Twitter you can no longer incorporate your own CSS code into your website CSS file over riding the built in CSS that the developers have put into place. So essentially you are stuck with how the widget looks, “Out Of The Box” on your website. This can present a problem if you have a site that has colors that does not correspond with the widget creators site. This is a design headache and will look bad on your website. You need to keep your visitors engaged in your business so the least little thing out of place can cause people to look elsewhere for more professional services or products. If your customer is annoyed by your site, they are likely not to return to it or make a purchase.
What Can I Do?
Its really quite simple. Do not install Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram or any other social networking widget on your website. Instead get some nice social networking buttons and code those buttons into your website with links to your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Instagram accounts. Your visitors will thank you and improper validation will not be a headache for you.
