#23811 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

XML-RPC shouldn't display errors

Reported by: koke Owned by: markjaquith
Milestone: 3.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.5.1
Component: XML-RPC Keywords: mobile has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


I've got some user reports of XML-RPC returning this:

<a href='function.strpos'>function.strpos</a>

In this case, it seems to be #18310, but XML-RPC shouldn't be throwing any warnings, since that makes the client think the request failed when it actually succeeded

23811.2.diff is similar to Marko's patch but for the WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY constant instead, which then sets display_errors.

#4 @markoheijnen

That doesn't exactly works the same. Your patch only works when WP_DEBUG is true and my one only works when WP_DEBUG is false.

I guess the issue here is that the server definition is display_errors: 1. So I guess both patches make sense to commit then?

23811.diff makes sense to me.

Not sure if WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY should default to false for XML-RPC. Should we do the same for AJAX in that case? I guess it should still default to true, otherwise it would make debugging harder.
