Basic Support Setup

Create your support page

The most important setting you need to set in the FAST plugin is your support page.

This is a regular WordPress page that you will set to be the base for your support system.

Once you have set this page in the settings, the plugin will override this page whenever you load it in your browser and display the FAST support page.

Here is how to get started:

  • Log into WordPress admin panel
  • Click Pages -> Add New
  • Enter a title for your support page (we will use Support for this example)

FAST Support Page

  • Click the publish button to create your page
  • Click the FAST Support menu
  • Select your support page name from the Support Page dropdown option
  • Click Save Changes

FAST Select Support Page

  • Now if you go and view your new Support Page (Pages -> Click View under your support page)

FAST View Support Page

  • The FAST ticket app will load instead of a regular WordPress page

The FAST support plugin will load itself on the page that you have selected as your support page.

It will also create a set of urls for you to use based on the support page url.

For example if your site sits on the domain

mydomain.com

If you create a support page called My Support it should be visible at the url

mydomain.com/my-support

Now if you set the Support Page in the FAST plugin options to use this new page the app will create some new urls for you to use.

URL Description
mydomain.com/my-support Main landing page for the app (view your tickets)
mydomain.com/my-support/ticket/:id View an individual ticket (:id replaced with ticket id)
mydomain.com/my-support/ticket/new Create a new ticket
mydomain.com/my-support/register Register a new user
mydomain.com/my-support/login Login to ticket system

Create your ticket agents

Your ticket agents will be the users that will be responding to tickets created by your customers.

To create a WordPress user that your ticket agent can use you will need to create a new user and assign it the Ticket Agent role.

  • Log into WordPress admin panel
  • Click Users -> Add New
  • Fill in a username and email for your new agent
  • Fill in a First and Last name for your new agent
  • Select Ticket Agent from the Role select box
  • Click Add New User

FAST Create Agent

The email that you used for your ticket agent will now recieve an email with their login details and they will now be able to log in to your WordPress system.

Now we need to create an Agent in the FAST plugin and assign it to this new WordPress user.

  • Goto Tickets -> Agents in the WordPress admin side menu
  • Locate the Add New Agent form
  • Enter a name for your agent
  • Leave the Slug and Description fields blank
  • Select the new user you created in the steps above in the WordPress User field.
  • Click Add New Agent button

FAST Create Agent

  • You should now see your new agent in the list on the right

FAST Create Agent

Choose your ticket types

To make FAST as flexible as possible we have created different ticket types that can be used on their own or combined together. The ticket types allow your customers to make different kinds of enquiries in your support system.

The available ticket types are:

  • General Tickets - Create categories and allow your customers to choose a category that best suits their enquiry when creating a ticket.
  • Product Tickets - Create products and your customers will be able to select one when creating a ticket.
  • Envato Tickets - Used for themeforest/codecanyon/etc Envato authors customers must have a valid themeforest purchase in order to make a ticket.
  • WooCommerce Order Tickets - If your site runs WooCommerce FAST links to your WooCommerce plugin to allow customers to select an WooCommerce order and product that they need support with.
  • None of the above - FAST can work without any ticket type selected if you want a really basic support ticket system that only handles simple tickets. Just set your default ticket agents on the FAST option page and FAST will assign all tickets to those agents.

To change your app to use one of the above modes goto the FAST Support plugin option page and select the types you would like your ticket system to handle from the Available Ticket Types dropdown.

FAST Create Agent

Depending on which ticket types you select, you can find out how to set up the different types in the next sections.

General Tickets

Envato New Products

  • You will also see the same field when you edit a product

Envato Edit Products

WooCommerce Tickets

How WooCommerce tickets work

WooCommerce tickets are linked to an order & product that a customer purchased using the WooCommerce plugin. Customers can create these tickets when they are logged in with their regular WooCommerce login. There are a few ways that the customer can get suppport, using a link on the My Account page or by clicking the Get Support button in their Orders page.

Via customers My Account Page

Customers My Account page Intro
Customer creates ticket Intro
Customer selects their order Intro
Customer selects troublesome product Intro
Customer details their issue Intro
(Optional) Fill in any extra fields Intro

Via customers Orders Page

Customers Order page Intro
Customer selects troublesome product Intro
Customer details their issue Intro
(Optional) Fill in any extra fields Intro

Assigning your WooCommerce agents

There are 3 places that you can set up your ticket agents for WooCommerce.

  • At the product level - Each product can have agents assigned to them.
  • At the category level - Each product category can have agents assigned to them.
  • Default agents - You can set default agents that will handle all other tickets that aren't covered by product and category level agents

When a new ticket is created, your customer will select a product that they need support for.

After that FAST will check if the product has any agents assigned to it, if so one of them will be assigned the ticket. Tickets are assigned to agents in a circular (Round-robin) fashion in order to make sure that the workload is evenly distributed and no ticket is left unassigned.

In example, if we assign 3 agents (Agent1, Agent2 and Agent3) to a product, the first ticket will be assigned to Agent1, the second to Agent2 and the third to Agent3. The fourth ticket will be assigned to Agent1 again and so on.

If the product has no assigned agents FAST will then move on to the product's category. If the product's category has agents assigned then one of those will be chosen for this ticket.

If both the product and product category have no agents assigned to them FAST will fall back to the default agents set in the FAST Plugin -> WooCommmerce options page.

Assigning agents to a product

  • Make sure you have created your support agents see Creating Your Support Agents
  • Edit a WooCommerce product in your WordPress admin
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Ticket Emails

Setup ticket emails

The FAST plugin will use the the WordPress wp_mail function to send emails to Agents and Customers.

If your server is set up to allow the PHP mail function to work then no extra configuration will be needed.

However some hosting companies will block the PHP mail function in order to prevent spammers from abusing the mail system.

If this is the case you can follow the SMTP setup guide below to configure your WordPress to use SMTP instead.

Using SMTP

We would recommend installing and activating the WP Mail SMTP Plugin to enable your WordPress to use SMTP to send emails.

  • Goto Plugins -> Add New
  • Type WP Mail SMTP into the Search Plugins... box
  • Click the Install Now button on the WP Mail SMTP box to install the plugin.
  • Once installed click the Activate button on the WP Mail SMTP box.
  • Goto Settings -> Email
  • Enter the details of the SMTP server that you would like to use
  • Click Save Changes

For more information on how to configure this plugin please look at the WP Mail SMTP Plugin Page there is also a nice guide here on wpbeginner.com

  • Once configured you can send a test email by entering a valid email address and clicking the Send Test button.

Customizing email sender

If you already have one email set for your website and want FAST to use a different email address you can set an email address and name that will be used only by FAST.

For example your WordPress site may be set to send all emails from contact forms, etc from info@mysite.com but you may want ticket emails to come from support@mysite.com. Use the Ticket Email Header Options in the Email options page to do this.

You can specify the email address and sender name for all emails that are sent from FAST. The options can be found under Fast Support -> Email Options -> Ticket Email Header Options. Default name and email will be used if the options are left blank.

Email Header Options

Values set in the above options will override respective values set by the SMTP plugin. This allows you to set email headers exclusive to your support emails sent by FAST.

Email Sender Name

Customizing email sender (GMail)

If you are trying to send emails from different email addresses using the same SMTP login and you are using GMail or Google Apps. You will need to tell GMail about this.

Follow these instructions to allow one account to send from multiple addresses.

Customizing email content

FAST can send emails to users when the following events occur

  • New Ticket is created
  • Customer / Agent replies to a ticket
  • Agent is assigned a ticket

You can select the events that will trigger an Email notification in FAST Support -> Email Options. You can also customize the Subject and Content of these emails in the Email Options page of the plugin.

  • Log into WordPress admin panel
  • Goto FAST Support -> Email Options from the WordPress admin menu

Both the Subject and Content options can include shortcodes that will be replaced by information from the ticket.

Shortcode Description
[sender_name] Name of the user that triggered the action
[ticket_title] Title of the ticket
[ticket_author] Ticket author name
[comment_content] Ticket comment content
[product] Ticket Product
[order_number] WooCommerce Order Number (if running in WooCommerce Mode)

Customizing email appearance

You can customize the look and feel of the emails FAST sends do the following:

  • Log into WordPress admin panel
  • Goto FAST Support -> Email Options from the WordPress admin menu

Email Options

  • The email options above all correspond to the email diagram below

Email Options

Extra Fields

FAST tickets can be configured to handle extra fields when a customer creates a ticket.

These extra fields can be completely customized in the plugin options.

Configuring extra fields

To change the extra fields that a customer fills in when they create a ticket do the following.

  • Goto the WordPress admin panel
  • Goto Fast Support -> Extra Fields
  • Click the Edit Fields button at the bottom of the extra fields table.

Extra Fields

  • Inside the form builder you can add/edit/remove/reorder the fields on the left side

Extra Fields

  • You will get a preview of your changes to the fields in the form preview on the right and you can even test it and check it works ok for you. A status label in the bottom will tell you if the form is valid.

Extra Fields

  • Once you are happy with your extra fields click the save icon in the top bar to save your fields.

Viewing extra fields

All extra fields entered by a customer will be visible in the ticket details sidebar when you are viewing a ticket.

Extra Fields

Secure Fields

Storing all your ticket information on one server can sometimes be a bad idea, especially when you are saving sensitive user information such as usernames & passwords. That is why we have added secure fields to FAST.

Secure fields are the same as extra fields, but they will not be stored in the WordPress database. Instead a filter will be called when a ticket is created that will allow you to send the data elsewhere, like a secure API or S3 bucket.

Creating secure fields

To create or modify your secure fields do the following.

  • Goto the WordPress admin panel
  • Goto Fast Support -> Extra Fields
  • Click the Edit Fields button at the bottom of the secure fields table.

Extra Fields

  • Click the Secure Fields tab in the form builder.
  • Inside the form builder you can add/edit/remove/reorder the fields on the left side

Extra Fields

  • You will get a preview of your changes to the fields in the form preview on the right and you can even test it and check it works ok for you. A status label in the bottom will tell you if the form is valid.

Extra Fields

  • Once you are happy with your secure fields click the save icon in the top bar to save.

Saving secure fields.

Whenever a customer creates a ticket and you have secure fields a filter will be called that will allow you to save this information externally.

The filter is named fast_filter_save_secure_fields and recieves 2 arguments, the secure fields data (array) and the ticket (WP_Post object).

We have included an example API and plugin that will store secure fields, you can find them both in the fast-secure-fields-example.zip in your CodeCanyon download zip file.

Agents access to secure data

In order to allow your agents to access this secure external data we have added an option to set a link that your agents can click on.

This can be set in the extra fields options page.

  • Goto the WordPress admin panel
  • Goto Fast Support -> Extra Fields
  • Enter your link in the Secure Field Access URL Option
  • Click save changes button.

Extra Fields

Now when your agents view a ticket with secure data stored they will see a link in the ticket details sidebar.

Extra Fields

Customers access to secure data

Customers are not allowed to view secure field data after they have created them, but they are allowed to update them in case they entered them incorrectly.

This is the view a customer will see, they will be able to click on an update link.

Extra Fields

If they click the update link a popup will allow them to update their secure information.

Extra Fields

Setting initial values of extra & secure fields

In some cases you may want to auto fill extra or secure fields with some values. For example your customers may have already entered some information on registration and you don't want your customers to have to enter this information again.

To allow for this situation you can add a filter to your theme or plugin code to set the initial values of your fields when a user creates a ticket.

Here is an example that will add an initial value "test value 1" to all your extra fields.

function fast_add_values_to_fields($extra_fields)
{
    foreach ($extra_fields as $field) {
        $field->value = 'test value 1';
    }
    return $extra_fields;
}
add_filter('fast_filter_get_extra_fields', 'fast_add_values_to_fields', 10, 1);

Saved Replies

A saved reply is a text snippet that an agent can add to the editor when replying to a customer. Using saved replies is a great way to save time when the issue at hand requires a standard and simple response.

Creating saved replies

An agent can create a saved reply by clicking the 'Save Reply' button in his editor's toolbar while replying to a ticket. Saved Reply Button

Once the dialog appears the agent will be prompted to type the title and the content of his saved reply. If he had alredy inserted text in the reply editor it will appear in his saved reply's content editor as well.

An agent can choose to share his saved reply with other agents, or keep it private. If he shares it, all agents will have access to that saved reply. Save Reply Dialog

Using saved replies

An agent can insert a saved reply by clicking the 'Saved Replies' button in his editor's toolbar while replying to a ticket.

WordPress Users

User roles

FAST creates three new user roles in your WordPress system each one will have a different level of control over your support tickets.

Ticket Manager

A ticket manager has full access to all tickets, this role is to be limited to users that will be managing the support system. The role can do the following:

  • Create / Edit / Delete All Tickets
  • Create / Edit / Delete Agents
  • Create / Edit / Delete Products
  • Read private tickets

Ticket Agent

A ticket agent is a user that will be mainly answering Customers tickets. The role can do the following:

  • Create / Edit All Tickes
  • Read private tickets

Ticket Customer

A ticket customer is a user that will be created by your customers. The role is very limited and can only do the following:

  • Create tickets

You can assign these roles to new / existing users from the WordPress Users admin page.

Modifying role permissions

FAST plugin has been created using the WordPress Roles & Capabilities.

This was done to make the plugin as flexible as possible and we have created an option page in which you can modify the ticket Roles & Capabilities.

  • Goto FAST Plugin -> User Permissions from the WordPress admin sidebar
  • Click the role you would like to modify and change it's capabilities
  • Click Save Changes

FAST Roles

Adding customer role to existing users

Some customers may be adding FAST to an existing site with existing users. Those existing users will not be allowed to access FAST and make tickets because they do not have the Ticket Customer role needed.

For this reason we have added a user convert utility that will allow you to give your users access to the plugin.

  • Goto FAST Plugin -> Advanced
  • Scroll to the Convert existing users section

FAST Roles

  • Select a role from the select box
  • All users with this role receive an extra Ticket Customer role
  • Click Give all users with the above role customer access button

All users with the role you selected will now have an extra Ticket Customer role, this will allow them to log in to FAST support and create tickets.

Registering users in another plugin

If you want to not use the FAST customer registration page and use another plugin you just need to make sure you enable one option in the Advanced options page. This will ensure that all new users that register will have the ticket customer role assigned to their user. This role will allow them to create tickets.

  • Login to WordPress admin panel
  • Goto FAST Plugin -> Advanced
  • Turn on the Add ticket customer role to all new registered users option

  • Click save changes

Translating the plugin

Translating into one language

Translating the PO file

To translate the FAST plugin into your own language you can use the pot file provided.

File Description
wp-content/plugins/fast-plugin/languages/fast-plugin.pot This is the translation file for the FAST Plugin

You will need to edit the pot file with a po editor, we would recommend POEdit

  • Download POEdit and install
  • Open POEdit
  • Click the menu File -> New From POT/PO File

FAST Frontpage settings

  • Select the pot file fast-plugin/languages/fast-plugin.pot
  • Add your translations
  • Save the PO and MO files using the language locale code as the file name.
  • FTP the .po and .mo files to your wp-content/plugins/fast-plugin/languages folder

Translating product names

Some customers have asked us for the ability to translate products that are created in the plugin.

We have added this capability to the po file method detailed above. Just add the product translation to your PO file and it will be picked up by the plugin.

  • Create a product in the Tickets -> Products page

Products

  • Open your language translation file in a text editor for example fr_FR.po
  • Scroll to the bottom
  • Add you product translation to the file

    msgid "My nice product" msgstr "Mon beau produit"

  • Save your .po file

  • Open your .po file in POEdit and click compile it to MO from the file menu
  • Upload both your .po and .mo files to the fast-plugin/languages folder
  • Your product names will now be translated

Products

Translation legacy mode

As of FAST version 1.10.0 all translations have been merged into one file to make translations easier to create.

Previously FAST used 2 files for translations, if you want to continue using this system you can do so by editing this file wp-content/plugins/fast-plugin/fast-plugin.php

Remove the following line

    define('FAST_SINGLE_TRANSLATION_FILE', true);

Translating into multiple languages

Using WPML plugin

FAST supports translating into multiple languages through the use of the popular WPML plugin. If you need a multilingual Wordpress website, and you desire a translated support page for each supported language, follow the steps described below:

  1. Set up the plugin as described in the documentation and create your support page.
  2. Download WPML and install it. Also install WPML String Translation.
  3. Setup your permalinks
  4. Create a support page for each supported language
  5. Translate plugin options

You have to use Pretty Permalinks. In your admin panel go to Settings -> Permalinks and select the permalink structure of your choice.

Permalinks

The most common ones are Day and name and Month and name.

We also need to configure the way WPML displays the urls for different languages. Under WPML -> Languages set the 'Language URL format' to 'Different languages in directories'.

Creating per language support pages

After you create and set the support page for your website's main language, you will have to create a translation of this page for each language you are planning to support. Each translated page has it's own ID. Write down the ID of each translated support page you create. You can see the ID of each page in your browser's address bar while editing the page. It is the number on the right of the 'post='

Page ID

Translating plugin options

Having done the above, we now need to translate the 'Support Page' option that you previously set in step 1 in all the other languages. In your admin navigate to WPML -> String Translation, and In the 'Select strings within domain' option set 'admin_texts_fast_plugin_options'.

Translation Domain

The fields that will appear below will allow you to translate the respective options into other languages. Options available for translation are:

  • Support Page
  • Intro Tab Title
  • Intro Tab Content
  • New Ticket Subject
  • New Ticket Content
  • Ticket Reply Subject
  • Ticket Reply Content
  • Ticket Assign Content

Out of all the fields that appear here, the one we want to edit first is the one that sets the support page ID in different languages. Edit the option '[fast-plugin-options]support_page' and for each language insert the ID of the support page that you wrote down in the previous step.

Translating Options

Now you can add each translated support page to the respective language's menu through Appearance -> Menus.

Email Piping

What is email piping

Email piping allows you to use email to create and reply to tickets.

This is possible by setting up FAST to connect to an email account via IMAP. FAST will then periodically check this email account for any unread emails. If it finds any new emails that have not been read it will convert the contents of this email into either a new ticket or a reply to an existing ticket.

Email piping

Setting up email piping

Make sure your server has PHP IMAP enabled

The first requirement will be to make sure you have PHP IMAP installed on your server.

You can check this by installing the PHP Info Plugin and check your PHP config in the Settings menu. You should see a IMAP section like this.

FAST Frontpage settings

If you don't see this section you will need to install and enable PHP IMAP. Contact your hosting to find out how to do this, or if you have access to your server you can install it using command line.

For example in Ubuntu you would run

sudo apt-get install php-imap

If you aren't sure how to do this contact your hosting company.

Set up your email

In order to use email piping you will need an email account that supports IMAP. Using the details for your IMAP email do the following:

  • Click the FAST Plugin -> Email Piping menu in the WordPress admin sidemenu.
  • Goto the Email Piping options at the top of the page
  • Make sure Enable Email Piping is set to on
  • Choose the timespan you would like FAST to check for new emails.

FAST Frontpage settings

  • Now scroll to the Email IMAP Details section
  • Enter your email username and password.
  • Enter your IMAP Server URL (e.g. Gmail - imap.gmail.com)
  • Enter your IMAP Server Port (e.g. Gmail - 993)
  • Enter your IMAP Mailbox (This is usualy left as INBOX)
  • Select your IMAP Encryption
  • Set if a certificate from TLS/SSL server is needed

FAST Frontpage settings

  • Click Save Changes

Microsoft Office 365 Setup

For some reason Office 365 emails use US-ASCII instead of UTF-8 so to get email piping to work with an office 365 email address you will need to do the following.

  • Click the FAST Plugin -> Email Piping menu in the WordPress admin sidemenu.
  • Goto the Email Piping options at the top of the page
  • Select your IMAP charset encoding to US-ASCII
  • Click Save Changes

Allow ticket replies via email

Set email replies on

  • Click the FAST Plugin -> Email Piping menu in the WordPress admin sidemenu.
  • Goto the Reply to tickets options
  • Make sure Enable email replies to tickets is set to on

FAST Frontpage settings

  • Click Save Changes

Add ticket ids to all email subjects

  • Click the FAST Plugin -> Email Options menu in the WordPress admin sidemenu.
  • Make sure that New Ticket Subject, Ticket Reply Subject, Ticket Assign Subject include [ticket_id]
  • For example New ticket [ticket_id] from [sender_name] for [product]

FAST Frontpage settings

  • Click Save Changes

Enable create ticket via email

  • Click the FAST Plugin -> Email Piping menu in the WordPress admin sidemenu.
  • Goto the Create tickets with email options
  • Make sure Enable create ticket with email is set to on

In order to test your email piping to see if it is working there is a section at the bottom of the Email Piping options page.

  • Click the FAST Plugin -> Email Piping menu in the WordPress admin sidemenu.
  • Goto the Emil Piping Status section
  • The Last Email Check Results will detail the results of the last email check
  • The Next Email Check will tell you when the next email check is scheduled to run
  • You can force an email check now by clicking the Run Email Check Now button, this will schedule a new check

FAST Frontpage settings

Creating a contact form for email piping

Now that you have configured email piping, you can create a contact form that will take advantage of it, and allow your users to submit tickets through a form. For this tutorial we will use the free and popular Contact Form 7 and we will create a form that will allow users to submit tickets.

Create a contact form

Once the plugin is installed and activated, create a contact form. The contact form will need to look like the one pictured below:

Contact Form 7 Settings

Insert the contact form in a page

Once your form is created, a blue bar similar to the one shown below will appear under the form's title. Copy the text that resides inside this bar and paste it in a page that you want your form to appear

Contact Form 7 Settings

Now your page should have your newly created contact form, which will look like this if you are using the default wordpress theme:

Contact Form 7 Settings

Configure fast to use your form for email piping

Now that the form is in our page, we just need to configure FAST to properly handle emails generated by this form:

  • Set 'Use Reply-To header' to 'on' under Fast Support -> Email Piping
  • Set the 'Additional Headers' field under your contact form email settings as shown below:

Contact Form 7 Settings

And we are done! Now you have form that creates tickets handled by FAST.

Using GMail IMAP

There are a few gotchas I encountered when setting up IMAP for Google here are a few.

If you see the following errors

Can not authenticate to IMAP server: [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Invalid credentials (Failure)

FAST Frontpage settings

  • Make sure you account is using a strong password, if you see the above error try changing your password to 50 random chars using secure password generator

  • Login to your gmail account

  • Click my account in the user menu in the top right
  • Click the Signing in to Google link
  • Click the password menu
  • Enter a new strong password from the secure password generator
  • Change the password in the FAST Plugin -> Email Piping option page

Setting up WordPress cron

In order for WordPress to periodically check your email for new email FAST will use the WordPress cron job functionality.

Out of the box WordPress will be set up to check for any cron jobs that need to run every time the website is used.

But this could cause problems on low traffic sites, because someone has to visit the site before the job is triggered.

For example lets say you set FAST to check for emails every 10 minutes, but nobody visits your site for 1 hour. This means that FAST wont check your email for new tickets or replys for a whole hour.

But don't worry Follow this WordPress guide to setting up a cron schedule or this WooCommerce Guide if your server runs CPanel and this will make sure that emails are checked when you set them to be checked.

Scheduled Maintenance

Auto close tickets

This feature allows Fast to periodically check for inactive tickets and close them automatically. In order to enable the auto-closing checker do the following:

FAST Ticket Maintenance Options

  • Log into WordPress admin
  • Click the FAST Plugin -> Scheduled Mantenance menu in the WordPress admin sidemenu.
  • Goto the Auto Close Tickets section
  • Set the option 'Enable Auto Close Ticket' to 'On'.
  • Choose a period of inactivity you want to set for closing your tickets using the slider.
  • Click Save Changes button

Your FAST installation will now check for inactive tickets at midnight every day and close them. The periodic checks are handled using WordPress cron events.

Every time the scheduled checker runs, all tickets that

  • Are currently open
  • Did not have any kind of activity in as many days as the option "Close Tickets After" determines.

will be set to 'Closed' automatically.

Viewing auto close schedule and reports

Every time a check for ticket auto-closing is run, a report is generated. You can view this report in the Scheduled Maintenance --> Last Auto Close Results. The report contains information regarding the date the latest check took place, as well as the number of tickets that were closed.

'Next Scheduled Auto Close Check' describes when the next auto-close check will take place, and which tickets will be affected.

FAST Ticket Maintenance Report

Running a manual auto-closing check

The plugin provides the option for one-off auto-closing checks. A one-off check can take place at any time and does not interfere with any scheduled checks. Schedule checks do not need to be enabled in order for the one-off check to take place. The same rules that govern scheduled checks apply here as well. To run a one-off check simply press the 'Close Old Tickets Now' labeled button in the Close old tickets now section of the Scheduled Mantenance options page.

Troubleshooting

Can't log in

FAST plugin uses the WordPress API to grab it's data from your WordPress site.

In order for this to function correctly you may need to make sure that you have your PHP error reporting set to not show notices & warnings.

Notices & warnings are a kind of message from PHP saying I don't think your code should be like that. It will work but it's not the best way.

The reason for this is that many plugins (including some of the top ones, WooCommerce I'm looking at you) sometimes ship with bad code that causes PHP to create a notice or warnings.

Here is what a notice / warning could look like

Notice: Undefined index
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach()

Now the problem with these random warnings popping up is that it breaks the WordPress API and will stop you being able to log in, answer tickets, pretty much everything.

However the fix for this is very easy.

Solution 1 - Turn off notices in your php.ini file

If you have access to your php.ini file, open it up locate the error_reporting line and change it to

error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_WARNING

This will turn off all warnings & notices

Or you could just turn off errors altogether (good for production sites)

display_errors = Off

Solution 2 - Turn off error_reporting in your wp-config.php file

If you don't have access to your php.ini file you can just add the following line to your wp-config.php file

error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_WARNING);

Or turn off errors completely

error_reporting(0);

Ticket emails aren't being sent

  • Make sure your server is capable of sending emails
  • Contact your hosting to make sure the PHP mail function has not been disabled
  • Try using the SMTP plugin (see email instructions)
  • Check the troubleshooting in the SMTP Plugin page

Can't login with Envato

  • Goto the Envato API My Apps Page
  • Edit the App you created for your Envato Login
  • Make sure the Confirmation URL matches your Support Page Exactly
