  • I installed College on a clean wordpress install and received the following error message:

    Warning: Declaration of Menu_With_Description::start_el(&$output, $item, $depth, $args) should be compatible with Walker_Nav_Menu::start_el(&$output, $item, $depth = 0, $args = Array, $id = 0) in /home6/wienoldu/public_html/marineleagueschools/wp-content/themes/college/functions.php on line 230

    I found a couple other references to this type of error on the forums, but I haven’t seen a resolution other than “its your server’s fault”. If this is the case, can you be more specific? I’m not a programmer, so please be clear what I need to do in order to correct this.


    Hi Matt,

    you need to contact your hosting provider and ask to turn off PHP error messages and warnings. As soon it is turned off, the message will disappear.

    Isn’t that like removing the check engine light from your car’s dashboard, just because it’s lit all the time?

    The problem is that the “Check Engine” also output Warnings, this is not an error and not a problem, only a warning. The real problem is that a hacker can provoke such errors and find weak points on your website, that’s why PHP error messages should always turned off on public websites. For the warning: we added a workaround for all our themes to prevent the notice from your first post, you can use also the most recent version of the theme to remove the notice.
