Wordpress Error Monitoring Features

WordPress debugging and error tracking usually involves another dodgy WordPress plugin or checking log files. There are better techniques, however.

Error monitoring has come a long way. Raygun Crash Reporting, for example, has a dedicated WordPress provider to ensure software bugs and performance problems get raised immediately. You can then go through your usual debugging workflow to ensure the bug is gone for good.

Raygun has features like: 

User Tracking - A full list of users who have experienced crashes and errors with your application informs you of the scale of your issue. Read more here.

Real User Monitoring - Enable Real User Monitoring to see how users navigate your website, the performance of each page, and exactly what you can do to improve your load time. 

Raygun gives you full stacktraces for each and every error occurrence, along with environment information, HTTP requests, raw data, browser, OS, affected users and more. All the details you need to rectify issues quickly and efficiently. Raygun stores every single error event (no data sampling) so you’ll always have the right information at hand when needing to see when, why and how an error occurred.

    • Rather than be bombarded with a flood of messages and error emails, Raygun silently monitors your applications in the background and offers smart alerts for you when need to take action. Notifications are fully customizable, but repeating error instance emails and team chat alerts are sent only when issues are recurring or getting worse, resulting in more signal, and less noise.
    • Raygun allows you to set inbound filters to remove the reporting of errors you don’t care about or cannot fix, meaning you’ll be able to see the problems that are highest priority and affecting the largest amount of users. Choose what you want to monitor with custom setup for dealing with private user details and sensitive information, you can do it all.

It takes minutes to set Raygun up - seriously

Simply add a short PHP code snippet and deploy your application into production, that’s all you need to start monitoring your application for Wordpress errors. Start fixing bugs within minutes!
