WP Debug Log – Configuration Tool


A simple debug helper plugin. Check Debug Log from the dashboard. Admin Email notification can also be set. It will trigger an email notification using wp-cron job if there is any data in the log file. By default, it is turned off.
Using WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY along with WP_DEBUG, debug messages can be controlled to show whether inside HTML pages or not. By default,it is turned off so users will not see any debug or error information.

  • Enable or disable debug constants with a single click.

  • See different highlighted log levels.

  • Set custom log file paths for loading debug logs.
    > apply_filters(‹wp_debuglog_log_file_path›, $file);
  • Accessible from the dashboard’s WordPress admin top nav bar.
  • Simplifies the debugging process by managing to log debug without modifying the wp-config.php file directly.

Constants Available

  1. WP_DEBUG :: Default Value : true
  2. WP_DEBUG_LOG:: Default Value : true
  3. SCRIPT_DEBUG :: Default Value : false
  4. WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY :: Default Value : false
  5. SAVEQUERIES:: Default Value : false

Please note: Constant values will be restored on plugin deactivation as it was before activating the plugin.

No activate the plugin and turn off/on debug constants from dashboard

Can I add more debug constants ?

Great plugin because it's no-frills and just does its job. I just wish the refresh button would work on multiple clicks. It seems to only work once and then you either need to delete the logs or refresh the page for it to work again.

My go-to debugging plugin for 500 internal server errors and anything that's trickier to track. Good job.

it's exactly what i am after for. instead of connecting to ftp, opening wp-config.php, editing the constants, saving, uploading, reloading site, opening debug.log and deleting it and so on … you simple enable the toggle and look into the logs right in wordpress with nice styling so you can easily distinguish between warning and errors. in the future i would like to see more toggles for instance for WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY. for some reason this is missing?!
