  • Papercite Crashes WordPress

    Just updated Word­Press as well as all the plu­g­ins and sud­denly my résumé page is blank. And just in case some­one else expe­ri­ences a sim­i­lar issue, I took notes of all the steps to fix the issue below.

    Turn­ing off likely plu­g­ins revealed that papercite (a plu­gin used to ren­der pub­li­ca­tions in the BIB for­mat as HTML) was the reason.

    To under­stand­ing the prob­lem I turned on error mes­sages to actu­ally see what was going on by
    edit­ing index.php in wp-content/themes/ / and added fol­low­ing line to the begin­ning of the file:

    <?php ini_set('display_errors',1); error_reporting(E_ALL); ?>

    From that I could under­stand that papercite was unable to load a PEAR mod­ule due to the strong restric­tions that my web space provider had set up (which is also why I can not edit the php.ini file directly to turn on error messages).

    Solu­tion: Go to Set­tings -> papercite plu­gin and change the parser to OSBiB parser (which does not depend on PEAR), et voilà my résumé with pub­li­ca­tions is back! :)

    Finally, let’s remove the PHP line I added in the begin­ning from the index.php file.

    *name

    *e-mail
