Invalid Element Location

This article refers to a previous version of the Duda Responsive Website Builder. Click here for help content on the current Duda editor.




Invalid Element Location error means that an element is in the wrong place. Usually, this means the indicated element has been placed outside of a column, a column outside of a column wrapper, or that a column wrapper has been placed outside of a row.

How can I fix this?

Move the element into its appropriate location. If you are adding your own element, this most likely means you need to place it inside of a div with the dmRespCol class on it.


Adding an element outside of a column, or removing or breaking a column will throw this error. For example:

 <img src="" id="1591034424"/>
 <div class="dmRespRow dmHomeTopContent dmImgCoverRow" id="1486644331">

I've placed this image between two rows, and this error is thrown. If I move the image into a row:

<div class="dmRespRow dmHomeTopContent dmImgCoverRow" id="1486644331">
    <img src="" id="1591034424"/>

This error no longer occurs.
