Plugin “my-logit” logs data from plugins that make a function call to ‘logit’ which has been added in their plugin code. The call takes three arguments “logit(1,__LINE__, “some data”). This is a great plugin for logging and testing as it progresses through your plugin.
In ‘my-logit’ you can create up to four log files, view them, print them, and clear them. You can name the file anything you want. the log files are kept in the folder http://your-domain/contents/uploads. “.log” is appended to the filename so do you do not need to append .log yourself.
Place the code “logit(File Number, __LINE__, “Data”) anywhere in your plugin code where you want to log data.
– File Number (1-4), number representing which log file to use.
– __LINE__ will log the plugin line number. __FILE__ would log the plugin file name (This can be any text or blank) . Supports HTML structure.
– Data is the data to be logged.
To View, Clear, Delete, Print, or Test Log File, first select the appropriate File # and the click Save Settings.
logit(1,__LINE__, “some data”);
logit(3,__FILE__, “my data: $myVariable”);
logit(4,””,”<h3>Log File: $logfile</h3>”);
Be careful on clearing and deleting files as this plugin currently does not ask for confirmation (coming).
Enter the name for the logfile(s) (up to four). Click on Enable to turn on the logging for this file. Click on Show Time to include the date and time in the log file when logging.
- Upload `my-logit.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory.
