I work supporting WP plugins and child themes and until I found out about THIS jewel of a plugin it was a real migraine to get sufficient data from any client. Now I have more than enough. Simply ask them to install/activate the plugin and send you a URL... Voilà! Life is so much the easier. Thanks Matt Cromwell, I'll never forget this 😉

Just stumbled on this today. Absolutely love how simple it is. The bonus ability to email the info directly, or post a public link is really excellent. Thanks for creating this and making it available to the community at large! (Full Disclosure:) I loved this plugin so much, and I noticed it wasn't being maintained, so I adopted it and am now maintaining it.
