How would I turn on error reporting without resetting the theme? I ask hostgator to help, now my subsite urls are broken.


In WordPress error reporting is primarily controlled by WP_DEBUG and other related constants in wp-config.php file. Typically they are completely independent of theme and plugins, although some (well coded) extensions adjust their behavior accordingly with debug settings.


Open wp-config.php in a text editor and instead of

define('WP_DEBUG', false);


define('WP_DEBUG', true);

This will set PHP display_errors flag on; however plugins and themes might override it.
