6 common website problems.

These main causes have great potential to disrupt the user
experience or cause damage to the website.

  • 01
    Plugin updates

    and WordPress updates leave errors on the website.

  • 02
    Code changes

    unintentionally modify design elements on subpages and remain undetected.

  • 03
    Missing checks

    Manual quality assurance of complex websites is time-consuming and inaccurate.

  • 04
    External services

    and API integrations are no longer fetched correctly.

  • 05
    Server problems

    do not display subpages correctly and generate error messages.

  • 05
    Malicious code

    or problematic links are infiltrated by hackers.

These problems can be prevented –
with Visual Regression Tests.

We wanted to help solve these problems for website owners.
That’s why we created VRTs – Visual Regression Tests.

No-code tool

Quick to install and uncomplicated to configure. Programming skills are not necessary.

 

WordPress Plugin

Visual Regression Tests is easy to integrate as a plugin into your WordPress website.

Daily tests

The tool automatically scans all selected pages and validates the visual content by comparing screenshots.

This is how the VRTs plugin works.

Activate tests in the post editor meta box

Activate daily tests for any page or post.

Upon activation, a reference screenshot is taken. This will be renewed when a post is saved or updated. Comparison screenshots are created daily. You wanna remove a test? No problem. Just remove the test in the settings.

Browse through alerts in the WordPress backend

Catch issues on the go with email alerts.

If a change is detected between the snapshot and the comparison screenshot, the plugin will create an alert and notify you via email. As an effect of an alert being raised, the daily testing is paused for that page. As soon as the alert is marked as resolved, the testing continues. The resolved state is taken as a new reference point.

Compare screenshots in various views

Compare two snapshots – use the view of your choice.

To compare two versions of a website state you can use the option difference, split screen or side-by-side. With that you can easily detect the differences between the two snapshots and fix them quickly.

Since our website has now reached a very large scale and continues to grow steadily, we are happy to quickly detect and fix errors with the VRTs. Absolutely recommended for extensive projects!

FAQ

With visual regression testing, you can detect errors and unwanted changes on your website by comparing a previous state of the website with a more recent one. For example, errors in the frontend can be caused by plugin updates and changes. For small websites, you may be able to find them right away, but for complex websites, it becomes difficult. A tool can help by taking pictures of pages and posts to detect visual changes and inform you automatically.

Tests can be done manually, pixel-by-pixel, DOM-based or AI-based. In all cases you compare an earlier website state with a newer website state. Our Visual Regression Tests Plugin takes periodical screenshots and compares them on a split screen.

You can do visual testing either manually or with automated tools. Checking your website for errors manually is time-consuming and less accurate. Automated tests may find errors that are minimal and irrelevant. But the chance of finding critical errors is much higher with a tool. As soon as you discover an error, you’ll receive a warning so that you can fix the problem as soon as possible.

Screenshots and comparisons are performed on an external server and sent to your WordPress website. Only required meta data is stored in your database.

Yes, cookie banners are not an issue. Before taking a snapshot, the tool can automatically trigger the Accept button to hide the banner. This option can be configured with CSS selectors in the plugin settings.
