Artifact code appearing above top bar

Post by AJoomla511 » Fri May 14, 2021 12:13 pm

Hello!

I've recently noticed that when my site loads, I am showing the following above my top bar (screenshot also enclosed).

.rss_mod a{ color:#953144; }


What is this and how do I fix?

Welcome to Joomla forum!

Maybe you've added some CSS code to one of your template overrides without adding HTML style tags?
Like:

Code: Select all

<style>
.rss_mod a{ color:#953144; }
</style>
If so, it's not seen as CSS but as text and displayed as such.

You could create a backup that you install locally (using XAMPP or something similar).
With an IDE (Netbeans, PHPStorm, Visual Studio etc) you could search for 'rss_mod a{ color:#953144; }' to find out in which file it is used.
