Ultimate DebugBar

Description

Ultimate debug bar for your WordPress website. On each page of your website a neat debug bar will be displayed with the following info:

  • PHP version
  • Request execution time
  • Request memory consumption
  • WordPress-related PHP constants defined in your wp-config.php file
  • All website options (wp_options)
  • Request data
  • Timeline (waterfall) where you can see which portion of execution takes too much time
  • List of all hooks triggered on the page whose execution time exceeds 1ms, along with some stats
  • List of all database queries performed on the page, along with their source and execution time
  • Last 100 lines of your debug.log file (if it exists in wp-content)
  • List of loaded PHP files (categorized)

Besides that, it will track request data/hooks/db queries/mem. consumption in AJAX calls too (beta).

This plugin is meant to be used during development and/or debugging only. Only administrators and network administrators (in multi-site environment) can see the debugbar, unless the WP_DEBUG is set to true. In that case, everyone will see the debugbar.

Screenshots

A: Your server is blocking Ultimate Debugbar. If you’re running nginx, (check this)[https://stackoverflow.com/questions/23844761/upstream-sent-too-big-header-while-reading-response-header-from-upstream].

Q: AJAX requests are not being diplayed in the debugbar
