Report Error WP Plugin

Daddy Design is proud to introduce our very 1st WordPress plugin, WP Report Error. This plugin was born out of the need to allow users to submit potential errors on a database website that we created, when no viable options were found we decided to build the plugin ourselves.

The Report Page/Post Error WP Plugin allows website visitors to inform the WordPress owner/webmaster that there is a potential error on a page or post. This plugin is extremely flexible with options to insert a “Report Error” link on every page/post, on individual pages/posts via shortcode, or into your theme’s template via php script. When the “Report Error” link is clicked, a small contact form will pop up via javascript, the user can then input an optional message and submit the form, the form also features an easy captcha to avoid potential spammers. The owner/webmaster will then receive an email with a link to the exact page or post where the reported error is located and any additional messages from the user.

Version

*1.6 Two new admin features added in Plugin options page , 1. Hide error “Icon” and 2. Hide “Email” field from the pop up form.
1.5 Fixed Spam issues. Make sure to have Askimet Plugin installed!
1.3 Fixed upload issues from the 1.2 upload
1.2 Insert strings needed for multiple languages.
1.0 Released

Thank you for creating this plugin. One little thing I was hoping to suggest for the next version: I am using this on a client's site and he would like to be able to change the wording that shows up on the page. There doesn't seem to be an option to do this. I can change it in the plugin, but of course, if you come out with another version, I'll lose it. Thank you!

Nevermind, finally found it and changed the text and color in the php on line 86 from: Report Error to Please email me if the video is deleted.

Hi, Thanks for this great plugin, just what I needed. Just how do I change the text "Report Error" in the post? I tried to find it (also language file) but no luck yet. How do I change the color? Now it is darkish blue, but barely visible on my background. All other links are the standard css color. For both I checked the php and css files and I normally find what I am looking for to change, but this time guess I need sone direction. Thanks, Ron

Hello, I use your plugin for 2 years and I feel very good! But from the beginning must be something: I need the plugin sent the mail to the author of the post and the admin, not only to my mail but also warning that the author of the post since my blog is used by many authors.

I keep getting blank emails from the Error Report. No link, description, or even an email address. Any ideas how to fix this? I'm worried they are real, but the information isn't getting through. Thanks!

Plugin functions well, however, the spam challenge is just too easy to break by spammers. 98% of all reports are blank emails from spam email addresses. Please use some form of validation which prevents sending of message without body text and a more dynamic spam challenge. Thanks

Hi, I'm trying this plugin but it shows the report icon only on pages, not posts. I tried inserting the shortcode in posts too, doesn't work. I'm using WP 3.2. Please help. Thanks

Great plugin, Might I request: 1. When the user clicks on send, just close the ajaxified popup instead of taking user out to a new page 2. Allow users to customize a list of categories from a dropdown 3. Capture the IP address of the reporter so that spamming IPs can be added to a block/ban list. 4. Show report in dashboard

I added in the Wordpress Theme Editor but they doens't show on the Webpage

Rather than sending the report to email, how about using a database of some sort and show a listing of all reports in the wp backend.

Tried your plug-in on one of my sites. I like it, but how about if it returned to the visited page? The configured message on the Setting page appears to thank them (my words from the settings page) and then the only option for the user is to close the window. I would like them to return to the page they were looking at when they clicked the error link.

UPDATE! Request from users, We added two new admin features: 1. Hide error “Icon” (hides the Yellow icon so now you can have just a text link). 2. Hide “Email” field from the pop up form (now the submitter does not have to input an email and just notify you about the error).

The plugin is great, only trouble is that for the last few days I get several fake reports from just one user (in the body of the email there r links to all the adult stuff. If I cud know the IP address of the user then I could ban him easily using wp ban. But no such info is given by the plugin. Thanks for considering my request. :)
