WordPress Error Monitoring by Bugsnag

Description

Bugsnag is a WordPress plugin that automatically detects errors & crashes on your WordPress site, and notifies you by email, chat or ticket system.

All websites crash from time to time, including WordPress sites! The WordPress Error Monitoring plugin by Bugsnag automatically detects crashes, exceptions and other errors in your WordPress PHP code as well as any errors in plugins you are using.

Errors are sent to your Bugsnag Dashboard for you to view and debug, and we’ll also notify you by email, chat, sms or create a ticket in your issue tracking system if you use one. We’ll also show you exactly how many times each error occurred, and how many users were impacted by each crash.

Reviews

Easy error monitoring

The plugin is easy to set up; all errors can be monitored via the Bugsnag dashboard. You can also set different log levels and differ between the environments (dev/production) of your website.

Bonus: There are lots of cool integrations like Slack (Push Notifications), GitHub (New Issues) and much more!

Works, but have many problems

– can not use it together with standalone bugsnag from composer: no way to override ‘require’ statement!
– empty filters throw PHP errors/warnings
– two copy of sources in package
– wrong field for $user['name']
– anonymous users could be logged as well, like $user['id'] = get_client_ip_address();

Could you please update your plugin? Even a simple apply_filters('bugsnag_composer_autoloader', $COMPOSER_AUTOLOADER) would be really great!

Does exactly what it is supposed to in my experience

I have installed the plugin on about 40 sites today so far, and it installed successfully on all of them and has logged errors on many of them already. The integration has been seamless.

The one aspect which has not been quite seamless is that, after installing the plugin, trying to enable it from the confirmation screen often gives me a 500 error in Pantheon (our hosting provider). I then have to go to the main Plugins page and enable it there, where it works 100% of the time.
