How did you insert the A tag, dragged from library panel, copy/paste from somewhere, typed manually, …
Are you sure it’s valid, did you inspect it, and do you understand what this warning message means?
About the issues you experience with “duplication”, maybe you activate by accident the “Repeater” option, without knowing it. See this docs page “Section 4 - The Repeater” for more info about this feature:
I manually entered (typed) the A tag into the Edit Code window and no, the warning is definitely incorrect as the referenced "< " is the opening chevron for the A tag since it appears even if I type the "< " into an empty Edit Code block. Other warning popups also become ‘sticky’ while I’m working in the Edit Code window.
I never touched the repeater… the app does the repeating on its own.
I never experienced the A tag issue with version 5.0 but the repeating
issue did happen occasionally. If others are experiencing sticky warning popups, this must be a bug with v5.1
Thanks for your input, Rob and Marf. I understand why the error shows and continues to display until the tag is closed… but the error does not go away after the code has been completed and the warning pane ‘sticks’ with my cursor until I reboot. I’ve reported this to the tech team at Pine Grow and they’re working on it as a possible bug. BTW, I’m using a capital A just here in this forum to highlight the tag type.
@randyrie You are not the only one that experience the problem with the “sticky” error message(s).
See this topic from @steveshead.
My english is pretty good (I think), but not my native language. So sometimes I maybe produce a weird sentence or use the wrong words in a context. Don’t know if thats the case why you did not understand “that part” of my previous post.
What I tried to say is:
You seems convinced that the duplicate code is not produced by the “Repeater” feature, which I can understand. But when you typed/touched “by accident” a numerical value (which can happen) before you did those actions (without knowing it, so you are not aware you did that and activated the repeater feature this way by accident). Then you got suprised with those duplicate code/elements in your page.
Of course I don’t know what happened, and I also don’t know if you triggered the “Repeater”. I only tried to explain what it may have caused, because duplicate code / duplicate elements don’t happen just like that. And the “Repeater” feature exists in Pinegrow and I think is the most logical explanation what might happened.
