Uncaught Errors in Newspaper Theme Console

Noticed over the past few weeks that we are now getting a series of errors when loading pages on our site at http://www.InMaricopa.com

Trying to understand if they are caused by Doubleclick DFP ads being delivered, some of which are formatted in HTML 5 (instead of image or Flash) or a plugin like GeoDirectory, missing or something else. Leaning toward trouble with the ad formats because most reference "gwd-...." which is Google Web Designer, the program used to create the ads that are loaded into DFP.

We recognize a few of the others that seem to relate directly to plugins, but not sure about the more generic "Uncaught TypeError" which seem to be javascript-related. Hoping that you might be able to provide some insight regarding the errors so that we can better understand how to fix them. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Ray,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    Based on your console I believe that you have some plugin or theme conflicts on your end, do you perhaps have multiple plugins that are doing similar things, or doing something already included in theme you're using.
    This kind of errors can show when plugins are trying to call same jquery files.

    I would suggest starting with plugin conflict test to see which one is causing you most issues and see which of your plugins are in conflict with each other.

    Best regards,

    Thanks for the reply. I guess we were hoping for something a little more specific. Noticed that each of the errors has a link to the right. Is there some way to review each link to get a better idea of which plugins may be calling them? Your suggestion about performing a plugin conflict test sounds good. Is that simply turning off plugins individually and seeing which errors disappear when they are inactive? Can you explain a little bit about how those calls to jquery files work? If we knew what was calling or why (for example, the gwd-image, gwd-metric-event or gwd-pagedeck that would be helpful. As mentioned above, many of them seem to be related to ads attempting to deliver from Google Doubleclick for Publisher ad system.

    Thanks!

    Hi Ray,

    Links on the JS errors mostly link to the file in question and the specific line of code that's causing issues, however this doesn't actually mean it's bug in the code itself because it could be a plugin/theme conflict, so once you disable plugins and see which ones are in conflict with each other then we can get more info which part is actually causing it by having a look at plugin code.

    Hope this makes things more clear :slight_smile:
