Debug Your WordPress Website with the New Debug Bar Plugin

Mason has been blogging like crazy about the recent WordCamp Miami. I’m very jealous. I wish I was going to be at WordCamp Miami. I will, however, be at WordCamp UK – don’t think the weather will be so nice but I’m sure it’ll be fun anyway.

Anyway, Mason let me know about this cool new plugin that you can use for debugging your website – and the debugging options appear right in your admin bar.

To get it up and running you’ll need to install the Debug Bar Plugin and the Debug Bar Console Plugin.

Just click the button and the debug box will appear at the bottom of the screen. It’s pretty similar to other tools which I’m a fan of, like Firebug and Chome’s Developer tools. It’s great to be able to do as much work as possible in your browser – I like getting rid of unnecessary software :)

Here’s Mason’s original interview in which Andrew Nacin talks about it. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for it.
