How do I use the Umbraco LogHelper method to trap errors and exceptions?

See below how to use the Umbraco LogHelper to log error messages to the UmbracoTraceLog.txt file.

Umbraco uses Log4Net for all it's logging, additional options can be set in the Log4net.config file.

@using Umbraco.Core.Logging
        // your code here
    catch (Exception ex)
        LogHelper.Error(System.Reflection.MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod().DeclaringType, "Your headline message", ex);

You can also use:

 LogHelper.Info(this.GetType(), "Message");
