You can configure how many error or warning messages you want to see. However, if you blow the limit you see NOTHING. You should see the limit
error messages. Otherwise you have no clue what the matter is. When you get a large number of errors, chances are they are lots of the same problem. You just need to see a few examples.

Hello,

Sorry, I don't understand. If you set the error limit for 20, then you should see up to 20 errors. Perhaps the errors are in a different tab or page than the one you are looking at?

If this doesn't resolve it, then please provide more details.

You were right. The errors were in one of the other tabs. I am just used to looking only in the first one.

I have searched the help file, the FAQ, this forum and the Options interface, but have not been able to find how to set the limit on # warnings (currently set to default of 20). Hopefully someone can help. Am I missing something obvious?

Also is there any way to exclude specific warnings?

Hello Michael,

You can set the error and warning limits in the Validator Engine Options, Validator Engine->Message Output page. There are options there to set the maximum number of errors and maximum number of warnings.

You can also disable many of the messages that you don't want to see. Here is more information on disabling messages:
https://www.htmlvalidator.com/v160/docs ... ssages.htm
https://www.htmlvalidator.com/v160/docs ... g_messages

In the most common case, you would right-click on the message you want to disable (when shown in the Results Window in the editor) and choose Message Options->Disable using Message ID. Note that not all messages have message ID's however (but most do).
