I use chrome when browsing ATS and can confirm there's no "extra div", but perhaps IE needs an extra DIV to fix a visual compatibility issue. The XMB software that ATS used to use had browser specific in-line loaders for cosmetics, I'm sure the modern ATS code does as well.

I don't use chrome as does not suit my needs. This is not a question for the computer tech forum; (too simple) Shugo, thanks for your thoughtful response.

I guess then I'm not sure what the question that's been unanswered is.


It's highly likely that it's a bad notation container that wasn't closed and the extra div is used to make up for a bad compliance issue in IE. XBrowser compatibility used to drive (still kinda does) drive developers insane, because many browsers don't read things in the same way.

Why 'extra DIV' shows up after a post. You have not had this happen?

I can't say I have had it happen, but as I said...the reason could simply be because of a broken notation tag. It would look something like this in the source:

< |-- Start Extra Div -->
< div >
 
< /div >
Extra Div -->

And would output either "Extra Div" or "Extra Div -->" on the page in error.

I have not yet had a notation error as am aware of; even with nesting potentially difficult esoteric information such as (I [am this one] I).

The text showing up of "extra div" would be that notation error as it is due to the use of an unopened or left opened note tag in ATS's HTML code. It has nothing to do with user error.

No notation error; and apparently not English or Spanish (what is it).

YES and I will get to the top of it. Misspellings, bad conjugations of verbs; English as a 700th language seem not to play a part in the mystical "extra DIV" denotation (one crowned with).

Best I could gather in about ten minutes on the Google is that it is blocking ads.
Word to the advertisers. I will not buy your crap if you trespass in a rude manner.

Lets try this: Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart, Union Pacific Railroad, Chase Manhattan (not evil overlords) just threatening to be as showing up here and there as mysterious 'extra DIV's' (rocking your world).

Can you duplicate this error (just for fun).

Sorry OP, but Shugo has pretty much explained it, well from my perspective anyway. IE does not treat "empty" DIV's very nicely, IE kinda expects a non-breaking space in every empty DIV so its not empty. You can blame Micro$oft if you wish; me, I like to blame the CIA. Its a conspiracy website after all!.

Not ['empty'] at all; described always intact as "EXTRA".

The DIV is empty, it's a broken note tag WITHIN THE HTML that is causing the problem. It has nothing to do with you or your post. The words "Extra DIV" are a broken tag within the HTML. It's the result of a broken note as seen here:

www.w3schools.com...



The comment tag is used to insert comments in the source code. Comments are not displayed in the browsers.

You can use comments to explain your code, which can help you when you edit the source code at a later date. This is especially useful if you have a lot of code.


However, if the person who write the code fails to open or close the tag, the comment will be visible in browsers. That's what has happened here most likely.

Empty = surplus = extra.

If the DIV is empty, then IE thinks it shouldnt be there so it calls it an "extra" DIV. This is my understanding of IE, I may be wrong, but I wouldn't be posting if I didnt have confidence in my opinion.

Why is it identified as a typed out 'posted' "extra DIV"? If its empty [not extra empty] do I have to obtain more empties to fill the extra quotas? Then what, I have a surplus of EXTRA EMPTIES to dispose of?
