Allow users to submit feedback and bug reports anywhere on the site using an interactive feedback button.


With this plugin, logged-in users can send feedback using a dedicated feedback button on the front-end. For example, when you find a bug you can highlight the relevant part of the page and write some additional notes to it.

This information is sent via email to the blog administrator, including a screenshot of your annotated page and helpful debugging data.

Demo: Watch video

The plugin is highly flexible, you can adjust almost anything via filters & hooks. We also plan to release a couple of extensions for various use cases:

  • Stylish HTML emails
  • GitHub and HelpScout integration
  • An admin dashboard to store all sent feedback in the back-end.
  • Detailed usage analytics


Manual Installation

  1. Upload the entire /user-feedback directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate User Feedback through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. Visit the front-end to submit feedback
  4. Watch your inbox

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I enable the plugin for guests too?

You can configure where the User Feedback tool should be loaded in 'Settings' -> 'General'. It’s possible to show it for guests and also inside the WordPress admin.

How can I leverage this tool in my own plugin?

If you’re a developer, you may want to support User Feedback in your own plugin. For example, if you have a custom settings page and want to load the plugin there, just add the following snippet on that screen:

do_action( 'user_feedback_init', array(
    'name'      => 'My Awesome Plugin',
    'data'      => array(), /* some additional debug data */
    'recipient' => '', /* your email address */  
) );

This snippet registers your plugin properly so the User Feedback plugin gets loaded on that screen. If the user now submits some feedback, the email gets sent to you, including the debug data you provide. How awesome is that!

How can I change the wording inside the tool?

This is possible by leveraging the user_feedback_script_data filter. For example, you can change the message after submitting the feedback like this:

 * Modify the script data passed to the user feedback tool.
 * This example function changes the message shown after submitting feedback.
 * @param array $data User Feedback script data.
 * @return array
function custom_user_feedback_script_data( $data ) {  
    $data['templates']['wizardStep5']['intro2'] = '– awesome company';  

    return $data;

add_filter( 'user_feedback_script_data', 'custom_user_feedback_script_data' );

What else can I do with this plugin?
