DebugPress 1.1

Published: · Author: · Category:

The first update to DebugPress, version 1.1, brings several new features, including a new Debugger panel and improved settings page, with many improvements and updates to the styling of the debugger.

New release brings one new panel: Debug Log. This panel is placed on the Debugger tab on the right side represented as an icon only, and it shows current status of the WordPress debug log (enabled with the WP_DEBUG_LOG value), and allows you to load up to 5000 lines from that file. Loaded lines are loaded from the end of the debug file, and loading whole file is not good idea, because it can be quite large.

New panel can be very useful to quickly get the debug log content, without going through the FTP or hosting panels to find ‘debug.log’. Future plugin versions will include option to empty this file.

There are many styling improvements and changes for various debugger elements, and some styling options can be controlled via CSS variables (soon to be documented). DebugPress settings page has been improved and restyled, and settings are now easier to understand, with some descriptions expanded.

Let me know what you think about new release, and what new features you want to see in the future. Please, report any problems and issues you find.
