View Full Version : ePub Validation Error

09-13-2012, 05:33 PM
I can't figure out how to eliminate this validation error:

File: OEBPS/Text/
Line: N/A
This resource is reachable but not present in the OPF <manifest>. "Reachable" means that a reference of some kind that points to this resource exists in the epub.

Can anyone help?

Welcome to the MobileRead forums.

I think you'll find that this means that you have a file or an image which is mentioned somewhere in the XHTML files (e.g. in the table of contents) but is not mentioned in the manifest section of the content.opf file. Deleting the mention of this file or image in the XHTML files or mentioning it in the manifest will take the error message away.

I'd say you have somewhere a reference to the directory "OEBPS/Text/", and not to any file inside it. Look for href="Text", href="..", href="." or similar.

It would be great if FlightCrew would say where the reference occurs, though.

So this has been really helpful as I have the same error and after digging finally found the problem:

<link href="../Styles/template.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

However, here is the issue - what should it say?

Thanks in advance!

The link you mention is structurally correct, so I am afraid that is not your problem.
