PHP Warnings

  • Resolved Des H

    Hello, I was looking at my PHP error log and noticed a lot of warnings from the Rank Math plugin.

    The error is:
    preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: missing closing parenthesis at offset 44 in /*/*/*/wp-content/plugins/seo-by-rank-math/includes/replace-variables/class-post-variables.php on line 545

  • Hello,

    Thanks for contacting us, and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    There might be a keyword you’ve added with opening parenthesis which is not containing the closing parenthesis. For example, a keyword Sakib(s is there instead of Sakib(s).

    In order to fix this issue, you’ll need to add the closing parenthesis there. You may update the keyword from the post/page if you can remember something similar to this one.

    If you’re clueless on where the affected keyword can be, a quick way to spot them would be to access your database and make a query on your wp_postmeta table for the meta key rank_math_focus_keyword and in the values, you should filter the ones which include an opening parenthesis.

    Let us know how it goes. Looking forward to helping you.

    Thank you.

    Wow, thanks! I use the function to automatically update the focus keyword with the post title found on the Rank Math website. I didn’t even think about the fact that my titles contained commas inside of parentheses so Rank Math was cutting the title off early and not including the closing parentheses.

    I ended up using str_replace to remove the commas and it seems to be good now.
