Hello! As mentioned in the thread title, it seems I did something to make some of the text on my homepage underlined. Link is here. Maybe it's something to do with how I started the list? Any help is much appreciated.

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking for, I checked your source code and it seems you are missing a few html tags.

For starters you should only use the <body> tag at the start of your html content (all the text and imgs), along with a closing </body> tag at the end of all your html tags.

For example:

Code
<body>

 <body>
  <p>Don't do this</p>
 </body>

</body>


Code
<body>

<p>Keep all the html in one body, you can't have multiple.</p>

</body>

I also noticed that you missed quite a few closing tags for content especially with links which uses an "<a>" tag along with a text tag like "<p>", these tags should be closed with a "</a >" plus a "</p>" at the end of the line of code.

I've noticed a few areas in your code where you missed a few closing </a > tags and the ending "</li>" tags for the bullet point text:

Code
<h1><center>Shrines</center></h1>
    <ul style="list-style-type: none">
      <li><a href="https://sorcer.neocities.org/MiiShrine">Miis (Under construction, needs a major rework)</a></li>
      <li><a href= "https://sorcer.neocities.org/MadouPuyoShrine">Madou Monogatari/Puyo Puyo (Under construction) <-- here
      <li><a href= "https://sorcer.neocities.org/DarkstalkersShrine">Darkstalkers (Under construction) <-- here
      </ul>

Here is the corrected version of this snip with the ending tags:

Code
<h1><center>Shrines</center></h1>
    <ul style="list-style-type: none">
      <li><a href="https://sorcer.neocities.org/MiiShrine">Miis (Under construction, needs a major rework)</a></li>
      <li><a href= "https://sorcer.neocities.org/MadouPuyoShrine">Madou Monogatari/Puyo Puyo (Under construction)</a></li>
      <li><a href= "https://sorcer.neocities.org/DarkstalkersShrine">Darkstalkers (Under construction)</a></li>
      </ul>

You also seem to be pretty new to HTML, I would recommend trying to research how HTML is constructed and why things are the way they are. Hope this helps!

Thank you very much, it's true that I'm not very knowledgeable about HTML. I mostly use w3schools to troubleshoot one thing at a time.

I also see no underlinings, though - is it fixed already? If not, maybe post a screenshot?

I have a screenshot, but get "413 Request Too Large" when trying to post it.

You didn't close the link to your gallery, and so the part still links to it - and is thus underlined.

You won't guess how many afternoons I spent searching for missing semicolons :D

Which code editors do y'all use? Most of them have nice features for indicating syntax errors like missing closing tags or semicolons etc.

It has a tiny bit of a learning curve but I personally use Sublime Text and love it dearly.

I've been using GNU Emacs for at least a decade; I don't remember how long it's actually been. But it runs on all sorts of computers, it's free, extensible, customizable, and the sort of editor that, like vim/neovim, can grow with you as you become more familiar with it.

It has an extension package called "web-mode" that lets me check for bad markup. I also like to use a separate CLI tool called HTML Tidy.

I use the in-browser code editor on Neocities. I've been meaning to switch to Visual Studio, but I don't really know how to organize all my files to work together with it.

I think you'd have to get your files out of NeoCities and download them to local storage before you can edit them in Visual Studio. Monthly donors can access to NeoCities' WebDAV interface, which you can use to access your NeoCities' space as a network drive, but I stopped using NeoCities because I find WebDAV janky compared to sftp and rsync.

I've flirted with Emacs over the years but I always find myself in config paralysis. I just found your guide on your site so maybe I'll take another look. :)
