    • > /wp-content/plugins/artistpress/public/views/shortcodes/untitled.php
  • 2× PHP files trigger server errors when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/artistpress/public/views/artist-press-templates.php:30
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_url() in wp-content/plugins/artistpress/admin/includes/metaboxes/meta_box.php:4
