How To Find Help In WordPress

119. How to find help in WordPress.

WordPress help is very easy to find. There are many sites for helping WordPress users, including WordPress Codex and the always-helpful forums.

The WordPress FAQ is a good place to start, it provides comprehensive answers to common questions.

However, the best place to start looking for WordPress help is the search engine. This is usually the quickest way to get the information you need. It helps to take some of the pressure off our volunteers in the support forums.

Finding the words to accurately describe your problem may be difficult when searching for help. You may need to limit your search to WordPress resources or sites in order to get the information you need.

Sometimes you can use error messages to generate the keywords you need in your help search.

For instance:

Warning: main(/home/atlantis/public_html/wp-includes/ functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/stargateatlantis/ public_html/wp-settings.php on line 67 Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘/home/atlantis/public_html/wp-includes/ functions.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php: /usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/stargateatlantis/ public_html/wp-settings.php on line 67

The keywords you need to help solve the problem are hidden in this information. The error specifically references the files that are causing the issue: functions.php and wp-settings.php. Their names will make up part of your search.

You could try to open the files directly to examine them. Anyway, this may be of limited use. Numbers might not correspond to the actual source of the error due to the way WordPress processes .php files.

Particular errors

The particular errors fail to open stream and failed opening required. Both are happening inside the wp-settings.php file. This shows that the problem is likely with wp-settings.php rather than functions.php. The fact that both errors contain the words “failed” and “open” is another hint.

Not all keywords may be found so easily. If the problem is a CSS or HTML issue, you can include the particular tag or selector that the problem seems to lie with. However, you should still include words in your search. It can be difficult to know which tag is the real source of the issue.

You may need to analyze the problem to find the right terms. For instance, if your web page layout differs between Microsoft Internet Explorer and another browser, then search for information on Internet Explorer layout bugs. If you have a layout error that remains consistent between browsers, you should identify the affected part of the layout. Likewise, if the header image is not showing up or not displaying correctly, you should begin by searching for WordPress header image. Then add specifics such as WordPress header image missing to narrow things down.
