At this point, the clues are telling us about the anomaly. Do you see it? The data you see in your browser is clearly telling you “Hey Silly, the problem is right here.” Let’s see if you can figure out what the root cause is from the clues at this point in the lab. It’s time to analyze the clues.
In order to understand what they are telling you, first, you need to visualize in your mind the order in which things are happening in the code, how PHP is executing, and when stuff is getting put into the Event Registry table. Our first step then is to flowchart out the sequence of stuff. This exercise will help you to understand the why of what is happening.
In this episode, you are getting a deeper dive into what is going on as well as a deeper understanding what files and functions are being called when and in what order including WordPress Core, Genesis, and your child theme.
Code. Eat. Code. Sleep. Dream about Code. Code.
