What does data-cfapps-unplaceable mean?


#1

With some websites the design of the application is corrupted and the behavior is unexpected. I noticed that when the happens all the tags are marked with data-cfapps-unplaceable. BTW, I am appending directly to the body tag so the user does not have to pick a location Here is an example:

<div class="popup" data-cfapps-unplaceable=""><div class="exit_popup box" data-cfapps-unplaceable="">

I suspect this is the reason the elements are not showing correctly. Any idea what is the cause and how to fix it?


#2

Hi, since the site is corrupt or having unexpected behavior, we use this tag to make sure that we don’t add elements which could farther break the site.

I see.

  • Is there a way to check the site in the preview mode and let the owner know his site is corrupt?

  • Can you give some examples of corrupt side or unexpected behaviors?

  • What’s weird is the my elements are added to the site, but they are just all over the place in such a case? how can that be if the elements are not added?

Here are some examples of different sites with this error:

It depends on the site and how your app is adding these elements. I recommend running that site through an HTML validation check like: https://validator.w3.org/nu/
