We just did a website upgrade. On some sites I have seen a 'Report an error' icon (in the right hind corner). After clicking on it, a user can report an error which will send along other information about their system like OS, the user's browser and what link they were on when the error occurred.

Question: Any suggestions on which module to use for it and/or how to add such 'Report an error' to the website?

Update: I am looking for something like whatismybrowser.com, which can be added like a button or tool.


You could check out the Feedback module to see if it meets your needs - it's pretty simple and lightweight. If you don't want to use a contrib module, you could do something similar to the Feedback module - create a block (either using existing blocks in your theme or create a new block region programmatically), position it absolutely, and then link the 'Report an Error' block text to some kind of web form where you can collect the desired information. You could also use the Webform module to help you quickly create a form.

  • Thanks @kbrinner, What kind of information does the Feedback block captures? – pal4life Jan 22 '15 at 16:14
  • You tell the Feedback module where to go - I have it linked to a simple Webform that I've configured to collect the person's name and their feedback. You could put whatever fields you want in a form. So it's up to you what information it collects. – kbrinner Jan 22 '15 at 18:00
  • Ohh,I actually need something that can automatically collect the users browser information as well to report issues. – pal4life Jan 22 '15 at 19:37
