cant see the debug.log
By , for WP 4.4.3

i downloaded because i thought you could see the debug.log easily, it doesn't show it

Not working
By , for WP 4.4.2

When we click on "Debug" in admin bar, we get the following (see screenshot link).

Plugin is enabled, but plugin does not seem to be enable. Tested on 3 installs.


Best of luck with development. Sounds like a neat tool, but we did not find it useful.

Deprecated methods on PHP7
By , for WP 4.5-alpha-36255

Plugin throws error on PHP7

Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; Debug_Bar has a deprecated constructor in /home/sandboxo/public_html/wpdev/wp-content/plugins/debug-bar/debug-bar.php on line 20

This bug already has been reported a while back and the solution has been posted too. But the people responsible for this plugin simply cannot care less it seems and this being a plugin by the WordPress Foundation makes you wonder what the real priority of them is to switch to PHP7...

Doesn't Work
By , for WP 3.9.1

I just installed this and nothing happens. There is no new icon in the admin bar, no section for settings for this plugin.

I even went as far as deactivate all the other plugins I was using to see if there was a conflict. Still didn't work.

By , for WP 3.8

OK, I should have read the installation instructions rather than assuming that I simply add the plugin to the plugin dir, like many other plugins.

This plugin should have some checking code when not installed correct way.

Now, despite removing the plugin dir and checking the active plugins in the DB my WP admin area is trashed!

This a joke?!
By , for WP 3.6.1

Is this a joke? The plugin does absolutely nothing to make debugging any easier. Delete, Thanks you.
