WordPress Debug Meta Data Like A Boss

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

I’ve been working over this WordPress plugin for a new product which makes a heavy use of WordPress Metadata API. Mostly the post meta data. Several times a day, I’d find myself dumping the metadata for the purpose of debugging.

While I use the Developer WordPress plugin, it just hit me that there should be a plugin to dump the metadata in the form of a meta box at the very end of a post type. So, I went ahead and built a simple plugin.

WordPress Debug Meta Data is a simple plugin that helps you debug the post metadata by adding a meta-box with metadata information of a post for all the post types. Information with meta key, meta value and its var_dump().
