Debug wp_redirect

Description

Important: It is not recommended you leave debugging enabled when you’re done, the debug information exposes file paths of files as well as PHP arguments passed into functions from the PHP debug_backtrace() which may contain sensitive information.

For those times when you have a lot of plugins and theme functions interacting and you just need to figure out what / where it’s redirecting.

This plugin outputs information about each wp_redirect call done on the front of a site.

To enable redirect debugging on a site, add this to your wp-config.php file:

define( 'DEBUG_WP_REDIRECT', true );

To enable redirect debugging in the admin dashboard of a site, add this to your wp-config.php file:

define( 'DEBUG_WP_REDIRECT_ADMIN', true );

Saved the day!

Worked really good. I had one issue where an object was echoed out like a string. A quick edit fixed that, and not it works perfectly. 5/5 if not for that error (on line 63).
