We can display WordPress errors and generate more output to our PHP log using the Multitool plugin. Version 1.2.1 of Multitool now offers a Quick Tool that will activate error display easily. It’s very simple at this stage and you should consider your site’s security when using it as errors could output sensitive information.

Increased Logging and Debugging

The new Error Display tool is just one small step to a long line of work intended to increase logging. An increase in logging will support debugging of the Multitool plugin and eventually WordPress as a whole. I’ve already setup a new Project on GitHub which involves assimilating another developer oriented plugin. The goal isn’t just to copy existing plugins features (I can come up with the idea of features on my own) but I’ll be trying to support the WP community by offering an alternative to plugins that are no longer supported.
