I'm developing with Wordpress in a multi environment scenario. I develop on my local machine, test on a server and so on.

I was using the "trick" of having a local-config.php file to have different configurations based on the environment. Today I discovered this: Wordpress config bootstrap.

It's just a simple improvement of the default wp-config.php file. It's working fine, but on my local environment appeared this error:

Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$id in /home/carlo/public_html/altrababele/wp-content/themes/wp-foundation/index.php on line 21

The code generating the error is this:

<?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->id); ?><div class="date"><time datetime="<?php echo the_time('y-m-j'); ?>" pubdate><?php the_time('j'); ?><br><?php the_time('M'); ?><br><?php the_time('y'); ?></time></div>

I set the debug option to false, but nothing changes. The problem appears to be that id is lowercase, so writing $post->ID actually solves the issue. It's strange because if I use the local-config.php it works just fine, but all the options are the same.

any suggestions?

The WordPress-Config-Bootstrap is setting DEBUG to true on a local installation. If you try to define DEBUG again later you should get another error. The solution is not to use the non-existent property $id. Notices should be fixed not suppressed.
