Would you actually like to know WHY you should do this?​

Not giving enough information is like calling a stranger and saying: “Hey, IT is broken, can you help me fix it?” I probably don’t need to tell you that you’ll get a negative or even outright weird response, although it’s probably not much weirder than the way you presented your issue… Right?

If you present your issue with only a fraction of the information, you’re making others guess. Basic facts like the theme you use, the plugins you have installed, your PHP version, your server settings AND error messages are important to know in order to be able to help you troubleshoot.
