Hi,

I am using the...

SS_Log::add_writer(new SS_LogEmailWriter('myemail@somedomain.com', SS_Log::ERR);

and I get emails for my errors sent to me - however what would be pure gold is if I could also get the name of the user (assuming someone is logged in) in that email so I know who to ask for when I want more information about what they were doing... any advice is much appreciated.

I think maybe something along the line of (see the documentation in the header of class SS_Log):

$logEmailWriter = new SS_LogEmailWriter('my@email.com');
$myEmailFormatter = new MyLogEmailFormatter();
$logEmailWriter->setFormatter($myEmailFormatter);

SS_Log::add_writer($logEmailWriter, SS_Log::ERR);

Have MyLogEmailFormatter extend the SS_LogErrorEmailFormatter class. Then have it add Member::currentUser() somewhere?

No idea if this will work though, haven't tried :-)

I was hoping it was a setting - but that is very close I should have followed the code a little more... I am going to set this up now and I'll report back what has worked.

Maybe I've overlooked a setting - don't think so though... Very interested in what you'll come up with :-)

All working....

_config.php

   $logEmailWriter = new SS_LogEmailWriter('some@email.com');
   $myEmailFormatter = new MyLogErrorEmailFormatter();
   $logEmailWriter->setFormatter($myEmailFormatter);
   SS_Log::add_writer($logEmailWriter, SS_Log::ERR);

MyLogErrorEmailFormatter.php

class MyLogErrorEmailFormatter extends SS_LogErrorEmailFormatter {
   public function format($event) {
      $arr = parent::format($event);

      $member=Member::currentUser();
      $arr['data'] .= 'Member='.$member->ID.','.$member->FirstName.','.$member->Surname."\r\n\r\n";

      $browser = new Browser();
      $arr['data'] .= $browser."\r\n\r\n";

      if (count($_POST)) {
         ob_start();
         print_r($_POST);
         $arr['data'] .= ob_get_contents();
         ob_end_clean();
      }

      if (count($_GET)) {
         ob_start();
         print_r($_GET);
         $arr['data'] .= ob_get_contents();
         ob_end_clean();
      }

      return $arr;
   }
}

As you can see I've also included the get/post and browser in this too...
