Sets PHP error handling and handles WordPress debug mode.
define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY and WP_DEBUG_LOG perform no function unless WP_DEBUG is true. WP_DEBUG defaults to false.
When WP_DEBUG is true, all PHP notices are reported. WordPress will also display notices, including one when a deprecated WordPress function, function argument, or file is used. Deprecated code may be removed from a later version.
It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG in their development environments.
When WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY is true, WordPress will force errors to be displayed. WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY defaults to true. Defining it as null prevents WordPress from changing the global configuration setting. Defining WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY as false will force errors to be hidden.
When WP_DEBUG_LOG is true, errors will be logged to wp-content/debug.log. WP_DEBUG_LOG defaults to false.
