PHP Error Log Viewer 2.2.0
Bring your PHP error log into your ClassicPress dashboard with beautiful style! Color-coding and filterable results make your error log a super quick skim – no more wall-of-text error messages!
Download PHP Error Log Viewer 2.2.0 to manually install or check your dashboard for the update.
Previously, purging the error log was only possible on the plugin’s own admin page. Now, you can purge the error log from any page that is showing the admin bar. The purge is achieved with AJAX, so there’s no extra page loads and you won’t lose your place. Just hover PHP Errors in your admin bar and you’ll see the new submenu to purge the log.
A new function allows you to manually trigger user-level errors, as needed. This provides an easy way to send arbitrary data to the error log, such as for inspecting the content of an object or array that may be otherwise difficult to access, or for when you want to see how specific data has changed at various points during a request when you don’t have a sophisticated debugger on hand. The triggered “errors” are tidily displayed in the log with any other (traditional) errors and are subject to the same filtering and sorting. See the documentation for full details.
