  • Keanan Koppenhaver: WordPress Debugging Tips and Tricks

    WordCamp Dallas / Fort Worth 2016Speaker: Keanan Koppenhaver

    October 29, 2016 — “Everyone’s code has bugs. Luckily there are almost as many tools to help squash bugs as there are bugs to be squashed. In this talk, we’ll take a detailed look at how to debug and fix some common issues associated with WordPress sites.

    We’ll explore how Chrome’s Developer Tools can help us pinpoint front end bugs.
    Then, we’ll take a look under the hood with the Query Monitor plugin and see what’s going on behind the scenes with your WordPress site, including database queries, included template files, and more.
    Finally, we’ll see how Debug Bar can help us keep an eye on any errors or irregularities that crop up in our code right from the WP Admin bar.

    With all these tools in your toolbox, you can ensure that your code is in the best possible shape and ready to ship!”
