Hi there,

The error message shows that the save_post action was called with no actual post passed to it.

Do you have an event with ID 5203?

To check, go to Event Espresso -> Events.

Find the event with id 5203 (if you have one) and click edit, is it a published event?

Hi, thanks for the message. I’ve checked and we don’t have an event 5203. Our latest one is 5172. Is it not an issue then?

If you’ve only had a single instance of that error, then no, not really an issue.

Something on your site ‘fired’ the save_post hook without a post actually being available, the error message doesn’t really help narrow down what fired that hook.

If you start getting that error regularly it may be something we can help investigate further.
