Debugging with WP_DEBUG_LOG

The constant WP_DEBUG_LOG is something I’ve only recently discovered — when added to wp-config.php it enables a log of WordPress errors and notices to be saved to wp-content/debug.log.

define( WP_DEBUG_LOG, true );

This is very handy when debugging plugin errors, especially hidden ones like those which occur on plugin activation.
