Error Log Pruner + Alert Option

    There are 2 things that I desire XenForo would have in 1.0 and 1.1, in regards to the system error log section.

    I desire to have a) Upon login to admin.php in the right column that it informs me there are new error log entries, and b) The ability to click a button to truncate existing ones - so I don't have to go into the phpmyadmin to mass remove them.

    Optionally a link to create a new thread on xf bug report forum, so I could quickly report it - and not get too distracted from whatever I actually went to the admin cp for.

    $5 for a),
    $5 for b).
    Or $15 if you do a) and b) and the start_new_thread link
    (over paypal upon delivery)

    The addon will be 100% yours, to repurpose, redistribute and share with anybody at no cost.

    Yep, give me your paypal and I will donate the $5.

    What's left is the other 2 things, an alerter so I know there's something new, and a link to report it as a bug to xfl.

    hm, wouldn't it be enough to show if there are some errors in the log?

    you check the error log, if you want to report something, you report it, after this, you truncate the log.

    So the counter is 0, once you have new errors, the counter will be >0 and you know that you have new errors.
    IMHO it's too much overhead, to track the last read date and compare if there are new elements or not^^

    No, it doesn't have to have 'mark read' support etc. Just

    0 ? don't mention anything
    bigger than 0 ? there are entries .. mention this on admin.php's opening page.

    I go months without checking error log because its Not why you go into admin.php

    Yep, something like that, in that sidebar on that page = perfect. Be it there at the top, or at the bottom, etc. Doesn't matter, as long as the tech admin goes 'ah new ones..'
