Mega Error from Electric Putty is a free Expressionengine Extension available for EE2.x which will look across all tabs within a publish layout for errors and flag them up in a way no one will miss.

The problem:
You have a channel with lots of fields. You’ve spent ages making a beautiful custom publish layout for your client to make their life easy. You’ve separated your fields across multiple tabs and everything looks great. Your client then creates a new entry and leaves a required field empty. EE captures the error and adds a warning, but the field is on the second tab and the client can’t see it. They have no way of knowing there is a problem; they don’t even know the entry hasn’t been saved.

The solution:
Mega Error from Electric Putty is a free Expressionengine Extension available for EE2.x which will look across all tabs within a publish layout for errors and flag them up in a way no one will miss.

Usage
Copy the folders to their relevant locations and configure the accessory for your desired needs in the addons->accessories area. That’s it!

I like it! Publish/Edit errors are far from obvious, and this makes them so.

This is part of my standard EE install, without it I get no end of calls asking why why they can’t publish. It’s sad that EE doesn’t have user friendly errors yet, but this solves all problems elegantly.

This is a fantastic add-on! I did have a few problems with it not doing anything on a 2.2.0 install but with 2.2.2 it works absolutely excellently. Thanks Electric Putty for putting this one out there for free!
