Unclosed PHP tag In Template File – messages.php

  • Hastig


    WP 4.4 / BP 2.4.3 / Custom Theme

    The template file for messages.php ends at endswitch; with no closing php tag. Is this by design?


    I was unable to include the WP get_footer tag without first closing it in my custom version.

    If by design, will my closing it affect any functionality that I cannot foresee?

  • It’s by design:

    Closing php tags shouldn’t be necessary, WP instructs not to close out files in this way. If you’re having issues they must lie with the custom templates?



    1. Not neccesary but won’t hurt anything if I do? Seems that way, so far anyway.

    I feel I’m missing something fundamental with Buddypress’s structure, still trying to get a handle on it.

    2. Is buddypress/members/single/messages.php a template page or normally a file that’s included in a template page?

    What I mean is, for example, messages-loop.php is a not a page but a file that is called by messages.php

    2b. So is messages.php normally called by another template higher up and the php in question is closed in that?
