Debug This

This plugin gives WordPress super admins an easy way to peek under the hood of the front-face of a WordPress installation via the admin bar.

How do I use Debug This?

  1. Make sure the admin bar is enabled in your user profile for the front-facing view of your website.
  2. Visit any page/post/archive on your website and you will see a Debug This menu item on the admin bar.

What PHP version is this compatible with?

We've tested on PHP >= 5.2.17

Can we request new debug modes?

Certainly! Please visit the plugin's main website and use the contact form there. I reserve the right to deny any requests that are too localized for the greater good. If that is the case, I will help guide you how to build your own debug mode.

Can I alter the plugin or build my own debug modes?

Yes! Visit the Extend section to find out how you can thoroughly extend Debug This for your own needs.

Why did you build Debug This?

I was working on a large collaborative project with 20+ developers and I got weary of debugging leftover debug code. I wanted a way to surface the data we needed without having to hardcode debugging code. Debug This keeps assurances that no debug code makes it up to a production environment.

Requires: 3.3 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.5.2
