Auto Load Next Post Documentation
Testing or debugging is a common thing for developers but users may have very little knowledge on how to go about doing so. This guide will help you figure out how to test with Auto Load Next Post.
First and foremost, I want to say thank you if you are beta testing or interested in beta testing future releases. Your feedback is important to making Auto Load Next Post better.
You can download the beta tester. I would always recommend beta testing in a staging environment.
Debugging a White Screen or Error 500
If you find a white screen or error 500 that usually means something has triggered a PHP error, but errors are hidden on your server. To find out the cause of the error you have two choices:
- Look at your server error logs and find the latest ‘fatal error’.
- Enable WP_DEBUG mode and view the page again.
WP_DEBUG involves editing your
wp-config.php file and changing, or adding if its not there:
define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
When this is done, a more useful error message should be shown. Most of the time this contains the name of the plugin and the line number causing the issue allowing you to act.
By default your
wp-config.php file will not have
SCRIPT_DEBUG set for you so you will need to add it.
// Enables none minified assets to load. define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true );
To view the developers version, also add
ALNP_DEV_DEBUG to your
wp-config.php file but only if you are a developer yourself and looking to make a change, addition or improvement to the script.
If you have followed the instructions above to enable
WP_DEBUG. Auto Load Next Post also allows you to...
Debugging Functionality Issues
If something is not working after installing a beta, the best thing to do is to narrow down the cause. To do this you can temporarily:
- Switch to a default WordPress theme and test again.
- Disable all other plugins except for Auto Load Next Post itself, retest, and re-activate plugins until the issue occurs. This will help you find the culprit.
If after doing the above steps you find that you are hitting the memory limit, you can increase WordPress’ limit. See here.
