A super useful plugin for all developers
By Plugin Author, for WP 4.6

Debug Bar (and it's many add-ons) is a super useful plugin for all developers.

Cleaner notifications of PHP Notices and Warnings, get notifications about notices and warnings on XHR requests, and quickly see what site_id you are on a Multisite install (in addition to the PHP / MySQL versions for single site).

Plugin doesn't work well in PHP7-fpm
By , for WP 4.5.3

Hello everyone.
This plugin is useful, however, it doesn't works well on php7-fpm.
Sometimes it crushed php7/nginx, very often admin-ajax requests doesn't work.
Authors, please apply the patch to php7! Your plugin is awesome, however the progress isn't stay still!

Regards,
Andrej.

It works and it saves me a lot of time!

To those that have problems making this plugin work: Debug Bar is extensible and requires you to do further actions in order to be useful. For example:

1. Install "Log Viewer" (https://wordpress.org/plugins/log-viewer/) to have a tab where you can see debug.log in real time. This works only if you have the following options in your wp-config.php: "define('WP_DEBUG', true);" and "define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);".

2. Install "Debug Bar Console" (https://wordpress.org/plugins/debug-bar-console/) to have a tab where you can directly execute PHP code and MySQL queries. Very useful to quickly test code instead of using functions.php.

3. Set "define('SAVEQUERIES', true);" in wp-config.php to have a tab where you can inspect all database calls and their execution time. WARNING: this feature eats a lot of resources, so make sure you disable it on a live website.

Excellent
