Layout and Activation

From version 3.0, the plugin has a new panel called Layout, allowing you to control the position of the debugger popup, size (if the position is not a Full popup window), modality of the popup, and activation.

The plugin also has additional options for activating popups via keyboard shortcut (with adjustable shortcut combinations in settings).

Plugin has the URL query argument with a secret access key for activating the debugger, allowing testing of live websites without showing the Debugger popup to everyone.

Powerful SQL Queries Panel

One of the most important debugger features is the ability to list and trace all the SQL queries executed by WordPress, plugins, and themes. SQL Queries panel in DebugPress shows information about each executed query, including the call trace, execution time, and formatted query easy to read. The panel allows you to filter queries by query type, database tables used in a query, and the function that made the call in code.
