WordPress Plugin: Diagnosis

Blogging has opened up to just about every type of person, but that does not mean all the problems are gone, and sometimes you need to fix something that has gone wrong. If you don’t have technical knowledge it can be difficult to fix or explain the problem. A new plugin is trying to help by giving a few important answers. It is called Diagnosis.
