Contributing Quick Fixes
Support for writing custom quick fixes has been discontinued. Feel free to reach out if you have ideas for new quick fixes.
You have probably seen the new Fix tab on elmah.io. If not, check out the We don't just log your errors. We help you fix them! blog post. The Fix tab helps you fix errors fast, by providing quick fixes known from Visual Studio and relevant answers from Stack Overflow.

public override bool CanFix(Message message)
return message.StatusCode.HasValue && message.StatusCode.Value == 418;
In this example, we create a new quick fix with a link to the Coffee Pot Control Protocol on Wikipedia on all errors with a status code of
To get started creating quick fixes for elmah.io, fork the
Elmah.Io.QuickFixes (no longer available) repository and add a new C# class. Additional documentation and examples are available in the repository as well.
