Easy PHP Error Debug for Joomla – System Plugin – CBX PHP Debug

I don’t see any easy way to debug or see php error log for Joomla, If I am not wrong. While working with WordPress I just put some constant in wp-config.php file to enable debug and display , log errors.

define('WP_DEBUG', true);
define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true);
define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);

Then WordPress creates a debug.log file in wp-content folder. I don’t need to go to php error log file in the server to check the error. I know we can configure local domain so that the log file is generated in the joomla local site folder but that is also not native joomla solution ! I was thinking to enable something for Joomla but didn’t find. So, I created a system plugin for Joomla to make this easy. The idea for “System Plugin – CBX PHP Debug” comes here. Just install the system plugin, enable and configure as need “Enable Debug, Display Errors, Log Error in debug file”, save and you are done. This plugin will create a file debug.log inside Joomla’s logs folder as configured in the configuration.php file.

BTW, I copied the debug init function from WordPress 🙂

Easyfaq2 content element for joomfish2

I think you guys who are familiar with joomla also know about it’s popular extension joomfish.Don no about joomfish ? ok let see what joomfish is:

The Joom!Fish is your key for providing multilingual content to your visitors! International (i8n) portals, companies or projects require content in different languages and processes which help to keep track of the translations. The Joom!Fish extension for the CMS Joomla! does exactly this.

Ya I like another extension for joomla to manage faq easily and it’s easyfaq.

Easy FAQ is a small and simple component that allows you to add a simple “Frequently Asked Questions” sections to your Joomla site. It allows you to specify categories and subcategories and add FAQ to it. It’s allows tagging to create a second level of categorization.

* Define categories and subcategories
* Add FAQ to a categorie
* Add tags to your FAQ
* Show a tag cloud on your site

Now ? I made joomfish plugin(contentelement) for easyfaq so that you can translate easyfaq faqs, categories, tags etc via joomfish translalation panel. that’s it. See the attach file bellow for download . LEt me know if you get any problem.
Note: This is upgraded version of old plugin that I did for earlier version of joomla, joomfish and easyfaq. So you can use this new version for joomla1.5, easyfaq2+, joomfish2+
