I've edited the title of the Q WordPress is giving errors after activating WP_DEBUG to something that I think is a potential Google search query.
It was WordPress Error Need Help.

I've just noticed a close vote. Yes, of course it's too localized, but seems a good opportunity to make a canonical Q&A out of it.

Or is there a duplicate where we can link? I'm not aware of one. Or maybe we should wait for another one to do this, as editing the content is not an option.

  • Oh, it doesn't appear in the first pages of the [frequent] list... I've upvoted many of the posts, must have been two ages ago.

  • Simple: go to tag debug and sort by votes. First match.

That question is too localized, and IMHO isn't a good candidate for appropriating as a "definitive" debug question/answer.

I would recommend writing your own question: "What are the steps to debug WordPress problems?", and then adding your own, definitive answer.

  • Yes, that's a good move, duly noted. IMHO, it was too localized until a generic title was given. . . When one is around for some time s/he can tell "oh, I suspect Chip voted to close this Q", :)

  • The Title was updated, but the question content was not updated. Thus, the premise of the question remained too localized. And yes: I close-vote often. We have a defined scope and site mechanics - including community moderation - for good reason. ;) Commented Oct 25, 2013 at 13:40
  • One has to be really inspired to change that content without defacing the OP. Anyway, I suppose that pinpointing the post here in Meta should have the community moderation effect necessary to close it or leave it.
