Spam Karma 2 Plugins XHTML Fixes

I recently discovered that my post pages were suddenly not XHTML Strict compliant. After some troubleshooting, I discovered that the culprits were two Spam Karma 2 plugins that were bundled with the package. They are the Javascript Payload and Encrypted Payload plugins.

I’ve made minor changes to these plugins’ files and they are available for download in plain text format below. They should go to /<your WP installation dir>/wp-contents/plugins/SK2/sk2_plugins/. The easiest way to replace the original file with the ones below, and changing their extension from txt to php.

If you love to complicate things, then generate some diffs and patch the originals 😛

UPDATE (14 Feb 2006): Links above are for 2.2 Final.

    I have never had any XHTML problems using SK2 right now and I don’t know anyone else that has the same problems with the validation.

    Sorry I wasn’t more clearer, I’m using the XHTML Strict DTD… and the two plugins’ output are definitely not XHTML Strict.

    Another thing is that assuming that what you’ve posted is about your blog, then I have to point out that it doesn’t validate even as XHTML Transitional… although the SK2 plugins won’t trigger any errors on your site because you’re not using XHTML Strict like I do.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    SK2 plugins won’t trigger the XHTML transitional errors. That’s as far as I know. I still need to work out the bugs in my template, but nothing to do with SK2.
