Debug Mode

Enabling Beaver Builder Debug Mode generates a report that lets the Beaver Builder Support team quickly get facts about your website's environment to help them troubleshoot. Debug mode can also help you find information to assist in your own troubleshooting efforts.

For example, Debug Mode lets you access any code you've added to the Global CSS and JavaScript option on the Tools menu, so you can troubleshoot whether your custom code is causing a conflict with Beaver Builder.

Entering Debug Mode produces a URL that contains a debug report. You can do any of the following things with the URL:

  • Copy it into your browser to view the debug report.
  • Add the URL when you file a Support ticket
  • Send it to the Support team when they request it at [email protected].

Debug Mode

To enable Beaver Builder Debug Mode and obtain the URL for the debug report:

  1. On the WordPress admin panel, click Settings > Beaver Builder, then click the Tools tab.
  2. Click the Debug Mode button. The URL appears just above the button. Copy the URL to send to Support.

There are no security risks from having Debug Mode enabled. Debug Mode is automatically disabled after 48 hours. You'll see a countdown timer on the Settings > Beaver Builder > Tools tab. You can also disable it manually on that tab after you know that Support has accessed the report. Once Debug Mode is disabled, the report is deleted.

Show Errors

Beaver Builder debug mode doesn't output errors by default. In order to show errors add the showerrors parameter in the URL.

After enabling Debug Mode, add the parameter /?showerrors to your URL to view errors, for example:

If the URL already has a ? parameter in use, then use &showerrors instead. For example, if you're using the Beaver Builder debug URL, the existing URL might be something like In this case, you'd append the showerrors parameter to form
