Update: Ajax Error Log for WordPress – v2.0

New version of Ajax-Powered Error Logs for WordPress now available for download. The functionality is the same, but the script is rewritten for better design, performance, and security.

Notes about the new version

New for Ajax Error Logs for WordPress Version 2.0:

  1. New sanitizing filters for input/output data
  2. New email notifications (enabled by default)
  3. Dropped support for magic quotes (see below)
  4. Updated to work with the latest jQuery (1.10)

Here is a list of changes and important notes:

/404.php

  • Some of the default markup has changed in the 404.php file.
  • In 404.php edit the $name and $email variables with your infos.
  • To disable the automatic email notifications, comment out (or remove) line #49 (i.e., the mail() function).
  • If you’re using magic quotes, add this snippet the mm_clean() function:
    if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) $string = stripslashes($string);

/page-ajax-display.php

In the page-ajax-display.php file, the default path has been changed from /wordpress/ajax-error-log-process/ to /ajax-error-log-process/ (two instances).

/page-ajax-process.php

If you’re using magic quotes, add this snippet the mm_clean() function:

if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) $string = stripslashes($string);

Everything else is essentially the same, but you’ll want to backup your original files and then check to make sure that everything is copascetic. Then test well and you should be good to go.
