Debug Notifier


For those developers who write clean code that produces no errors or warnings, it can be unclear whether debug mode is enabled or not. This plugin solves that problem by adding a visual style to the front-end and back-end (optionally) so that admins can tell at-a-glance if WP_DEBUG=true in the wp-config.php file. No more having to check the file manually.


  1. Upload the wcjcs-debug-notifier folder into your plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
  3. To adjust plugin settings, go to Dashboard->Settings->Debug Notifier


Can I disable the visual style from the front-end or back-end?

Sure, just set your preference on the settings page.

Where are the plugins’ settings located?

Dashboard -> Settings -> Debug Notifier

Can I use this plugin in a production environment?

Yes. Only those users with ‘administrator’ capability (or higher) will be able to see the visual style. Note, however, that enabling debugging in a live environment should be avoided, if possible.
