Adds a display of your server’s PHP error log to the Dashboard page of WordPress. Simple as that.
I wanted an easy way to see if something I edited or installed was throwing errors, and I slapped this together. Since then, I’ve used it on nearly every WordPress install I’ve worked on as its a handy tool and can show errors that your code is generating but that doesn’t impede the script of accomplishing it’s task.
Why does this matter? Some seem to feel that as long as the results get produced errors can be damned, but the fact is each error eats CPU cycles and can lead to instability even if the desired results are being achieved.
