Reveal and report errors with debugging tools

Here are quick tips on how to reveal errors and report them.

Turn off the preloader 
Turn on wp-debug
  • WordPress comes with its own error reporting and debugging tool. It's easy to turn on. 
  • Here's how -
    • Open wp-config.php  for editing.
    • Look for the following line:
    • define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    • If you see it, great. if not, add it or change the 'false' part to 'true' so it looks like the line above.
    • Then choose how you would like to see errors: 
    • Log to a file?
    • define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );
    • Print on Screen?
    • define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true );	
    • Here is an example of a wp-config.php file with debugging turned on and set to log errors.
    • If you wish to print errors out to the screen, set wp_debug_display to true.
Check your JS console.
