Development Environment

Description

Whoops error handling, no password logins, template hints, no indexing, flush rewrites, everything a developer needs for their local development environment.

Components

  • Disallow Indexing Turn off the public blog option. This will modify the robots.txt generation to block all search engines
  • Flush Rewrites No more weird redirection problems when working on custom post types or taxonomies.
  • No Password Logins Just stick the user in you want to login as, write anything in the password field, and it will login! Only works when connecting from local host
  • Whoops Error Handling The error screen from laravel, now in your WordPress setup
  • Template Hints See which templates are loading for the page you are on

The goal is to exchange security for ease of use, for that reason it’s important that you take the security measures needed
to ensure that someone can’t take advantage of the site with this plugin enabled.

If you’re running on a staging environment ensure you have setup a htpasswd
