Nothing is worse than browsing to your WordPress site and suddenly being met with the white screen of death, making it inaccessible to both administrators and visitors. If your site is a blank screen right now, this new plugin can help you restore your site back to normal.

What is the WordPress White Screen of Death?

Both PHP errors and database errors can manifest as a white screen, a blank screen with no information, commonly known in the WordPress community as the WordPress White Screen of Death (WSOD).

Majority of the time when you see a white screen of death, it means that the website exhausted the memory limit. This could be caused by a plugin that you may be using that is not functioning properly.

How to determine if a plugin is causing compatibility issues?

Before the “Plugin Detective”, you had to manually deactivate all of the Plugins and then reactivating them one by one until you find the one that’s breaking the site. This was a time-consuming process, but now with “Plugin Detective”, this can be done much faster. The plugin can disable groups of plugins, and use your answers to quickly narrow the scope of his investigation using binary search.

“Plugin Detective” helps you troubleshoot issues on your site quickly and easily to find the cause of a problem. You can even fix your site when it has the white screen of death (fatal error).

Once installed, a Troubleshooting quick link is added to the WordPress Toolbar. From here, users can open or continue a case. When a case is opened, a bot named Detective Otto asks users to navigate to the page where the problem is occurring.

Detective Otto learns from you. While interrogating the different plugin suspects, Otto will check in with you to see if the issue is still happening on your site or not. You just need to answer “Fixed” or “Broken” after Otto makes a change. Each of your answers provides Otto another clue that he is able to use to narrow down the list of plugins to find just the one that’s causing the problem.

Once the culprit is found, the problem plugin can be quickly deactivated.

If your site is not working properly, consider using “Plugin Detective”. This new plugin simplifies the troubleshooting process by quickly identifying plugin conflicts. Plugin Detective is free and available for download from the WordPress plugin directory.
