Xdebug Output Handler


This WordPress Plugin collects the Xdebug output and displays it in the footer. It both works in the front end and in the administrator interface of WordPress

Please make sure that you comply to the following dependencies: * have the Xdebug extension for PHP activated (zend_extension=/[path to libraries]/ * have defined your ‘WP_DEBUG’ as true (in wp_config.php) to see also Notices

This plugin does nothing with the profiler output of Xdebug. When Xdebug is enabled on your webserver, outputted errors will be expanded with a Call Stack which shows which calls led to the error. This plugin takes care of displaying these errors in a nice way.
