This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Allows developers to log variables, see the call stack, benchmark code; all to a logfile, so your page doesn’t get polluted with log messages. Each log message records the date and time, IP address, requested page, and file and line the log message came from, as well as the information to be logged.

The plugin has an options page which allows you to randomize the cookie and logfile, for security purposes; as well as turning logging on and off for a given user. (Via cookie.)

Documentation for the aaLog class can be found at the NotoriousWebmaster blog.

Documentation for the aaLogWP plugin, which includes the aaLog class, can also be found at NotoriousWebmaster blog, though on a different page.


  • The aaLog Options page, which allows the user to change the cookie and filenames.
  • A sample of the output produced by aaLog. Note the filename and line number where the call to $oLog was made.
