Encountered a NOTICE while searching something

asked Feb 2, 2014 in Q2A Core by Gurjyot Singh

While searching something on my q2a website, I encountered a notice on top area of header. The notice says

Notice: Undefined index: postid in /home3/name/public_html/my_site.com/qa-plugin/q2am-star-ratings/q2am-star-ratings-process.php on line 60

Can someone tell me that what is this and how can I fix this problem. So that it won't show in future.

Q2A version: 1.6.3

Best answer

I've proposed a fix to the plugin owner. Check the simple change here and let us know if you still get that notice.

BTW, I guess the easy way to test this would be to go to your profile and save it. That should fire an event that does not have a 'postid'.


Whoops. Corrected previous commit here. I missed the curly braces.

Don't worry, there is no issue, just a notice in the server log. Take your time :)

It's a problem with the star ratings plugin. Look at the file and line given in the error.

I opened the named file and saw that line but couldn't figure out what is the problem. Below is a screenshot of that file with the mentioned line.


See if you can help me by having a look at the pic.

After doing what pupi1985 said, the following error shows up while searching anything and even while loggig in and logging out.

Notice: Undefined variable: post_id in/home3/name/public_html/my_site.com/qa-plugin/q2am-star-ratings/q2am-star-ratings-process.php on line 65

A Question2Answer database query failed when generating this page.

A full description of the failure is available in the web server's error log file.
