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.
