I'm getting the following error right after a new clean install on Dreamhost

This page contains the following errors:
error on line 45 at column 500: attributes construct error
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

Any Ideas?

This looks like the error that Safari gives when it encounters problems with xml parsing of the html returned by a page.

Viewing the same page in firefox, the error shown is "XML Parsing Error: not well-formed", and it also indicates where the problem is in the web page source.

There seems to be some problems with the quoting generated from this file:


lines 247, 252, 257
Where the text 'Note: this message won\'t be shown to your visitors' appears.

I found the simplest solution is to replace each instance of "won\'t" with "will not" on these three lines

The quoting of the div title uses single quotes and then has a single quote in the middle.

replacing with " works well too...
is there a bug tracker we can file these things against?

There is a bug-tracker @ - but this specific bug has already been fixed in the 2.3 branch, and will be present in the next 2.3 minor release.
