How do you view the error console I keep hearing mentioned? I passed --contracts-console in my initial set up (i'm using the docker image) but no console runs in the background or opens when I call to cleos etc.

The --contracts-console option to nodeos will cause it to output any print statements made by a smart contract to its console log. When running from the command line, these end up in the terminal. If running from Docker, check the nodeos log file.
