Issues Tracker


Manage and monitor your WordPress website with ease using our WordPress Issue Tracker plugin. This powerful tool allows you to conveniently view and search WordPress logs, receive security advice, track 404 errors, and fine-tune your server settings.

We’ve designed the Issue Tracker plugin with accessibility and simplicity in mind. Say goodbye to the hassle of reading and searching through the debug.log file on your server. With the Issues Tracker, you can access and search logs directly within your CMS, making them easily readable and searchable.

Additionally, our plugin provides email notifications for various error events and covers more issues than a typical WP health checker.

Enhance your website’s security and performance with these key features:

Debug Log Viewer
Effortlessly view notices, warnings, and errors from the WordPress debug.log file in a user-friendly table format. Utilize advanced search options (by error type, line, and file) and pagination for quick and convenient log management.

WordPress 404 Errors
Identify and list all 404 (page not found) errors on your website, and configure email notifications for these events. For example, receive email alerts for every 404 event.

Receive expert recommendations on server and site settings to boost your website’s speed and security. Get notified via email if your server’s condition deteriorates.

Website Checks
Our plugin evaluates your website based on various criteria, including:
– Checking if the database username used in wp-config.php is widely used.
– Verifying the security of the database password in wp-config.php.
– Examining the state of the WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY constant.
– Ensuring you are not using the default database prefix.
– Verifying SSL (https) encryption status.
– Checking the PHP version for updates.
– Confirming that the WordPress version matches the HTML code.

…and many more checks in future releases.

Monitor all your website’s performance and security issues conveniently from one central location. Access log file entries, server checks, and 404 error reports in a single dashboard.

How do I debug a WordPress website?

To debug a WordPress website, follow these steps:
* Enable needed switchers in header of Issues Tracker plugin.
* The server will log errors into the wp-content/debug.log file. You can search this log file directly on the server or within your CMS using the Issues Tracker plugin.

Why is the debug.log important?

The debug.log is a crucial component of the WordPress system for debugging code, encompassing core, plugins, and themes. It plays a vital role in ensuring code quality and the smooth operation of your website.

You should aim to maintain an empty debug.log file, free from notices, warnings, or critical errors. If a new line appears in the debug.log, take prompt action to resolve the underlying code issue to provide the highest quality user experience for your website visitors.

What should I do with 404 errors on WordPress?

In WordPress, a 404 page is displayed when a requested page is not available, often accompanied by the message “Page Not Found.” These 404 errors indicate a need for improving the user experience. Numerous errors of this kind can deter users from your website and negatively impact search engine optimization.

Search engine crawlers do not index 404 pages, which can lead to a decrease in your website’s search result rankings. It’s essential to address and resolve 404 errors to enhance your website’s usability and SEO performance.

What are the common WordPress issues that can be tracked in the debug.log file?

The debug.log file serves as the default issue tracking log for WordPress. It provides valuable insights into various plugin errors. While some of these errors may not be critical immediately, they can lead to severe issues, such as the “White Screen of Death,” in the future.

Additionally, you can use the debug.log file to track errors in the code of the active theme. Regularly monitoring and addressing these issues is essential for maintaining the stability and functionality of your WordPress website.
