I am converting a site to SS3 but attempting to edit a page in the admin screens produces a brief error message and then nothing. I can copy the error message if I'm quick to see that it says:
"Notice at line 168 of /Users/macbookbruce/websites/frog3/framework/dev/Deprecation.php"

I have had other instances where I am getting these brief error messages and its somewhat frustrating because I'd really like to see the normal development error page so I can debug the errors. My config file includes:
Director::set_environment_type("dev");

Is there some way of getting more informative error messages in the admin screens?

cheers

Check your web browsers error console. The full error message and backtrace is in the AJAX response (also called XHR).
