Hi. I've been looking at the forum and issues but not seeing any info about this. I often have forms with records that have unpopulated fields. When this is the case and the list is rendered, the HTML does not close properly for those empty fields. Therefore, if my template has <strong>[FIELD]</strong> but that particular field is null, then the </strong> isn't generated and the style is applied to the remaining records. I don't think this happens with any of the built-in templates so I'm wondering what I'm missing. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Could you post the template?

Yes. I've resolved it either by populating the fields with a space or by adding <div style="clear: both;"></div> to the end of the template. I'm not sure which did the trick.

<div class="dnnGridItem">[UDT:EditLink] <h2>[First Name][ ][Middle Initial][ ][Last Name][ ][Credentials]</h2> <strong>[Title]</strong> <div><span class="imgLeft imgBorder">[Image]</span>[Bio]</div> </div> <div style="clear: both;"></div>

So it seems it's not quite resolved. Now the content panes are affected. I cannot move the F&L module around unless in layout mode and the content panes are affected. I'll investigate further later.

You might need to add XSL:IF statements to the XSLT that you are generating.
For example:
xsl:if test="udt:PrimaryPicture_UDT_Url != ''"
img src="{udt:PrimaryPicture_UDT_Url}" style="float:right;margin-left:8px;margin-bottom:8px;" /

The lines above need opening and closing tags. It checks whether that field is blank or not and only renders the code when NOT blank.
