Disable WordPress “debug” mode

In case there are warnings appearing on your website, please disable WordPress debug mode. In fact, you should never enable debug mode on your production sites, which cause all non-fatal PHP errors, notices and warnings to be displayed.

Simply open wp-config.php file located at the root folder of your WordPress installation.

Find and replace this line

define('WP_DEBUG', false); OR define('WP_DEBUG', true);


define('WP_DEBUG', false);
define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false);
ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL );

You may want to disable the display errors in your php.ini file as well if the warnings still display.

Otherwise, you don’t have to do anything at all.
