Broken Badges


If your replies show broken badges this:

Thanks for the love!


or like

Fairy_Muse src=http://www.colourlovers.com/images/badges/n/928/928909_Juniper_Wings.png


Note that both broken badges above you see still have the link working! You can always click and get a new badge code.
but not always... sometimes you can see but not click
Juniper_Wings


Generally it's one of the missing double-quotes that brake the badge code, these tiny things: "

Structure should always be:

X="Y"

(open and close double-quotes must be there - see more about it above here)

Here the 1st ones are missing
href=LINK_TO_ITEM"...
alt=ITEM_TITLE_HERE"...
img scr=LINK_TO _BADGE_IMAGE_HERE"...

it should be
href="LINK_TO_ITEM"...
alt="ITEM_TITLE_HERE"...
img scr="LINK_TO _BADGE_IMAGE_HERE"...


If there's 1 error, just 1 double-quote missing when you post your comment, the code breaks even more!!! So don't think of repairing after, re-start from 0 is better (edit or delete your comment)

Tips & Tricks



My badge does not update

When you edit a palette or a pattern it can take time for the badge to update.
To make things go quicker, you can edit the name. Even one character difference will force the update. (eg. adding a symbol at the end)
