  • Which post type you are looking? Is it default page, post or something custom post type? – Baikare Sandeep Jul 23 '18 at 10:57

  • this doesn't look like WordPress 3.8, would that rather be 4.8 ? – mmm Jul 23 '18 at 11:20
  • your saying from our side need to update the wordpress? – Gireesh T Jul 23 '18 at 11:22

I recommend to try by debugging the code, might be there is an issue because of a New version of PHP. Try by writing this code into the wp-config.php file and see what if any error:

 // Enable WP_DEBUG mode
define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );

// Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file
define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

// Disable display of errors and warnings 
define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true);
@ini_set( 'display_errors', 1 );

// Use dev versions of core JS and CSS files (only needed if you are modifying these core files)
define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true );

NOTE: You must insert this BEFORE /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ in the wp-config.php file

  • I tried with the above mentioned suggestion. It's not displaying error /warning. – Gireesh T Jul 23 '18 at 17:34
  • But the same project working fine in PHP 5 version . Am not changed anything. Just I moved the same project to PHP 7 server. I thought everything will work there. – Gireesh T Jul 23 '18 at 17:37
  • Make sure you have updated both constants true define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true ); @ini_set( 'display_errors', 1 ); , and see once or see on this location for log file: /wp-content/debug.log – Baikare Sandeep Jul 24 '18 at 9:50
