WordPress is an amazing content management system. The team behind it works very hard to fix issues, add new features, and keep the platform secure. What you do on your website is another story. Your theme, plugins, and files you are running on your server could cause errors from time to time. You are not going to be able to fix errors if you don’t look for them. These 8 plugins help you catch errors and issues and fix them before they become something serious:
WP Error Fix: tracks errors related to themes and plugins and provides solutions. It can be a big time saver.
Error Log Dashboard Widget: brings the latest entries from error log right to WordPress dashboard. Does not slow down your site.
404 Error Logger: most 404 errors can be easily avoided as long as you catch them and spend time to fix each. This plugin tracks down missing content on your website and lets you know.
Error Notifications: one of the best ways to find errors is to ask your visitors to help you out. Error Notification is one of many plugins you can use to encourage your visitors to help you catch errors.
Broken Link Checker: monitors links in your posts, pages, and comments, and detects the ones that don’t work. It notifies you by email or via the Dashboard.
