Home Forums Back End Starkers: No Closing PHP Tag Re: Starkers: No Closing PHP Tag


I’m pretty sure this isn’t an error. I’ve noticed it in the past and I’m fairly confident the functions file gets gets imported into the PHP of another file (or files) within WordPress. the closing tag is most likely included in that file. This allows WordPress to make sure key functions are always available. I’m not sure if that is actually happening but that’s what I’ve been lead to believe.
