Today I got an email from a user of one of my themes. She noted that when she added a video post, some strange code would appear underneath the video. I checked out the source code for her tumblelog and spotted the problem right away. Some of the HTML code was missing for displaying one of the theme’s images.
Before writing her back on how to insert the missing text, I checked my copy of the submitted source. The error was there too! Apparently, when I was copying the name of a image into the source, I inadvertently wiped out some of the surrounding code. I quickly posted and submitted a revised version.
What amazes me, though, is that this bug has been present since Feb 27th and according to the stats 1758 people have installed this theme. Why did this glaring error not come too light sooner? Even though it slipped by me, surely someone would have noticed.
