Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: unknown property name after \P or \p at offset 6440 in /wp-content/themes/enfold/config-templatebuilder/avia-template-builder/php/shortcode-parser.class.php on line 607
Our brief research into this issue showed that it is related to some sort of conflict with another plugin. However, it isn’t a pressing issue as it is only a warning. But it is still annoying which is why we have come up with a quick patch to mute these warning messages.
Turn off PHP Error Reporting
One of the support moderators on the Enfold theme support forums suggested users simply turn off PHP error reporting by inserting the following tag into your child-theme’s functions.php: error_reporting(0);
Not an ideal nor satisfactory solution in our opinion, but it will work. Another possibility is to mute warning messages only for the offending line of code. Which is what we prefer.
Mute Warning Messages
The following is a hard code into the main Enfold theme. This means that the patch will be overwritten upon the next update. But it appears they (Kriesi) won’t be fixing this issue anytime soon based upon the replies we received on our support request post.
A quick patch to “mute” error messages on the “preg_match_all” function would be to add an “@” to the front of line 607 within shortcode-parse.class.php
We have tested it and see that our shortcodes are still functioning. No more error notices upon preview and it doesn’t get reported in the server’s error_log
@preg_match_all( “/” . ShortcodeHelper::get_fake_pattern( false, $shortcodes ) . “/s”, $text, $sc_found, PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE );
We will try again to reach out (this time directly) to the developers at Kriesi.at to see about implementing a better, more permanent, solution to this minor yet annoying issue. In the meantime this patch will have to suffice on the accounts that frequently access the preview feature.
