    When a feed is, for any reason, unable to load, I would like to receive a warning to the administrator email address, so I can check on the feed URL and find out if it’s changed. But I’d like the experience of the website viewer to be unaffected – basically, they should continue to see the events from the compromised feed, and not be shown php error messages that reveal both the URL of the broken feed and the line and class name where the error occurred while attempting to parse. I don’t want that information exposed inadvertently, and it’s a bad experience generally. Plus, I have no way of knowing, unless I’m the one to encounter the error, that anything is wrong with my calendar.

    This is a huge bug, in my opinion. The plugin is beautiful, but surprisingly brittle.

    Thank you in advance.


    I’ll investigate the feasibility of adding notifications like what you’re describing, but I would like to note that the error messages are following standard conventions, and they will only be appearing to users on the front end if you have WP_DEBUG or the PHP display_errors setting turned on, which is strongly discouraged on production sites, for this exact reason.
