bbPress forums not showing

    The following code snippet enables WP_DEBUG and needs to be placed in wp-config.php.

    define(‘WP_DEBUG’, true);



    OK, shall I put it a particular place between particular code? Or just in the file?

    Backup your wp-config.php file first. You then don’t have to edit it again to turn debugging off–you can just upload a copy of the original file.



    Yes apologize backup the original file first. The code should already be in the wp-config.php just change false to true.



    OK – thanks for that, have saved the original and now set it to true. What do I need to do next?




    I seem to be getting the following error messages now – is this because of WP_DEBUG?

    This error in the dashboard at the very top…

    Notice: add_contextual_help is deprecated since version 3.3! Use get_current_screen()->add_help_tab() instead. in /home/lifeafte/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3467

    This error message on the forums pages, that were not showing before…

    Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /home/lifeafte/public_html/wp-includes/post-template.php on line 209

    This error message on private messages widget:…

    Notice: __ngettext is deprecated since version 2.8! Use _n() instead. in /home/lifeafte/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3467



    Yes. WP_DEBUG allows you to see where there are issues with the coding on your site. Notices get printed at the top… but still allow your pages to load and your site to remain active. Errors will cause your site to shut down until they are resolved.

    Two of your notices are from widgets using functions which are obsolete in the wordpress language (dashboard and private messags). The third warning (forums) seems to have a “wonky” line of code… maybe from a forums plugin??

    You can turn off WP_DEBUG… but the notices will remain. You just won’t see them printed out on your site.



    I have resolved most of this issue.

    I changed the permalinks back to the default and now the forums categories are showing. But the forums are still not showing. Can you suggest any reason for this now?
