Custom Recovery Mode Email


Since WordPress 5.2 there is a built-in feature that detects when a plugin or theme causes a fatal error on your site, and notifies you with an automated email.

But sometimes the message bothers people who doesn’t know how to handle with it and how to fix the bug which causes the crash.

With Custom Recovery Mode Email now you can choose the right recipient email of the person who can deal with it.

Optionally you can also set Email and Name sender.
