Getting an Error Message when I post comments


When I try to post comments to my test while logged out to test the system, I am getting errors. The error message in the screenshot is the result of attempting to post a wordpress comment. I also get errors when attempting to post comments with the Facebook, Twitter, and Google options.

You can view the page with the errors here:

I have granted support access in case you need it.

Is there a way to resolve this issue?

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for posting on the forum.

    I could confirm the issue on your site.

    This is a simple PHP warning and most of the time it doesn't affect functionality of site so it is nothing to worry about!

    Do you have WP_DEBUG set to true in your wp-config.php file?

    If you do then please set it to false.
    This will hide the warning messages and you will be able to use your site normally.

    For information on this, checkout this article.

    I have tested it on my test site using same theme version and setting debug on but didn't get any warning messages as displayed in the attached screenshot.

    I can see the wrong file path in the following warning message displayed on your site.

    Warning: include(/home/content/60/8690060/html/rosedesigns/wp-content/themes/upfront/./templates/upfront-comment-list.php

    There must be something on your site that is causing this issue.

    I can see you are using older Version 5.2.17 of PHP so could you please try updating it to the latest one by contacting your web host.

    Best Regards,
    Vinod Dalvi

    Hello Vinod,

    Thank you for the response. Upgrading to php 5.4 did resolve the comment issue for comments on my site. However, the problem with facebook comments has not been resolved. I've attached a screenshot of my error message.

    Please advise on how I can fix that issue.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Hello @Ryan

    I hope you are well today.

    This is because, you facebook app is not either not created or not live. Another reason could be you didn't provide correct site URL in the facebook app Site URL field. Would you please make sure about this and let me know?
