Adds a Dashboard widget that displays the latest messages from your PHP error log. It can also send logged errors to email.
This plugin adds a Dashboard widget that displays the latest messages from your PHP error log. It can also send you email notifications about newly logged errors.
Once you've installed the plugin, go to the Dashboard and enable the "PHP Error Log" widget through the "Screen Options" panel. The widget should automatically display the last 20 lines from your PHP error log. If you see an error message like "Error logging is disabled" instead, follow the displayed instructions to configure error logging.
Email notifications are disabled by default. To enable them, click the "Configure" link in the top-right corner of the widget and enter your email address in the "Periodically email logged errors to:" box. If desired, you can also change email frequency by selecting the minimum time interval between emails from the "How often to send email" drop-down.
Due to a known bug in WordPress 4.4, the "Configure" link may not show up. The link is still there, but WordPress hides it via CSS. This will be fixed in WordPress 4.4.1.
In the meantime, you can access the configuration screen by going to the following URL (replace
example.com with your site):
Requires: 3.4 or higher
