Whether you have a developer working on your site, or you want to contact us to help with troubleshooting, enabling WordPress Debug Mode can help by providing more information.

Where to Enable Debugging

Notes For Development

Enabling debugging will display all kinds of errors. Some of these errors will be harmless, but others may require further investigation.

It is recommended by WordPress to use debugging in a staging or development environment rather than a live site.
