Config Constants

Description

NOTE: This Plugin is still in beta. It’s recommended that you don’t run this Plugin on production sites yet, and don’t forget to backup your wp-config.php file.

WordPress constants such as WP_DEBUG can be defined in wp-config.php but have to be edited manually every time you need to make a change. But no longer! You can now edit several common wp-config.php constants directly from within the WordPress admin!

The current list of WordPress constants you can modify with Config Constants are:

  • WP_DEBUG
  • WP_DEBUG_LOG
  • WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY
  • SCRIPT_DEBUG
  • CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS
  • SAVEQUERIES
  • DISALLOW_FILE_MODS
  • DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT
  • WP_ALLOW_REPAIR

More constants will be supported in future versions.

If none of the above constants are defined in wp-config.php then they will be added automatically. Constants already specified in wp-config.php will have their values modified.

Also, a key feature of the Plugin is the support for two-way editing. This means you can still edit wp-config.php constants manually if you wish and your changes will be automatically synchronised with Plugin settings. Likewise, if you update the value of a constant via the Plugin options page then wp-config.php is immediately updated!

Please rate this Plugin if you find it useful. 🙂

Installation

Instructions for installing:

  4. Once installed click to activate.
  5. Visit the Plugin options page via Settings -> Config Constants.
  6. On the Plugin options page some/all of the supported constants may be initially disabled as you can only modify existing constants defined in wp-config.php. To be able to edit a constant directly in the admin just add it to your wp-config.php file and it will get picked up automatically in the Plugin settings.
