So simple, yet, so helpful.
By , for WP 4.5.3

It is now in my "essential package" for new WordPress installs.

Also, I had an idea to include in the plugin features and the author developed it in a few days, so I'm really very satisfied.

Nice one!

Deserve way more popularity

That's a fantastic tool. So many of my users struggle with the PHP logs and it's so much easier to ask them to install this plugin. Thanks so much for making this! I just wished it was more popular to motivate the author even more. Please add a donation link :)

Excellent plugin

Apart from the convenience of being able to check the error log from within the WP admin area, this plugin can also notify you in case new errors/notices have been recorded in it. This is actually a very useful feature, especially if you update your plugins automatically (I use wp-cli for this) and want a notification in case a problem has been encountered.

Moreover, it can be a great convenience in case a plugin/theme developer needs feedback about the messages that have been recorded in the error log, but the user is not really tech savvy.

I highly recommend this plugin.

My Go-to Error Log Plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

As a plugin author, I often need to ask users to take a look at their error log. This plugin makes that easy, providing instructions for configuring the error log. The plugin will also let you know if the error log is not configured correctly.

It's a pretty simple functionality, but critical when you need it, and this one it does it best of all I have tried. This is the one I recommend when helping people debug problems on their site. It works.

Works great

My kind of plugin: does one thing and does it well; nice and simple. It does what it says it does.
One of the best things i like about it, is that i can easily truncate the log right from the dashboard, don't have to ssh in.

For people who are having trouble with it:
1. It can only know what WordPress knows: the settings in your wp-config.php file. That's how it finds out where your error log is being written to, your debug settings, and more. So if it's not working, check there.
2. If you are wanting to see the error log, it could be assumed that you have some tech knowledge and know what you are doing, in other areas of php and wordpress. So if this plugin isn't working for you, maybe ... i dunno ... there is more to learn?

happy coding!
