Debug Bar
Impotent Debug Button (4 posts)

    After installing the plugin (v. 0.7) on my site (running WP 3.1.1), a Debug button appears on the Admin Bar but nothing else happens. The entirety of the button has the following HTML:

    <li id="wp-admin-bar-debug-bar" class=" "><a href="">Debug</a></li>

    I also noticed that debug-bar.js outputs an error (similar on the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox):

    c("#debug-bar-handle").outerHeight is not a function

    Line 1

    Hope this helps. I'd love to actually be able to use this plugin!

    Hi yanklperets,

    That is the correct HTML for the button—the debug bar is rendered in a separate location on the page.

    That said, it seems like you're hitting a JS error having to do with jQuery, which is odd. Are you running any other plugins on your site? If so, try disabling them and see if the bar works then, as there could be a conflict.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Thanks, Koop! Indeed it was a plugin conflict, namely WordPress Google Calendar. Once I deactivated that the Debug Bar showed up. Unfortunately, that's not really a plugin I'd like to keep deactivated right now on my site. But I could keep it off on my local development site and use the debug bar there.

    I have another question, though maybe I should start a new topic for it -- now it seems the Debug Bar doesn't show any warnings unless WP_DEBUG is set to true. But in that case, the warnings are printed all over the place so what do I need the Bar for? Wouldn't it be helpful for the Bar to show the PHP warnings and notices even if WP_DEBUG is off?

    Thanks,
    Yankl

    That means your server is set to display errors/warnings/notices to the user and it shouldn't be.

    The whole point behind only collecting that information when WP_DEBUG is enabled is to not load up your site with debug information when you don't have it enabled.

    The Debug Bar is designed to make the information more accessible rather than you having to dive into the error log to see the info.
