Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Testing the site before going live, part of WordPress DIY: Weddings and Special Events.
- If you've been following this course from the beginning,…you now have a fully built-out website…for a wedding or other special event…complete with customized user management,…registration, and guest only info and RSVP pages.…But we're not quite done yet.…When building a website, it's important…to make sure everything is working properly…and to check that you've done your part…to ensure those who are invited…to your event are able to register, log in,…and get the information they're looking for.…This is what I call the Launch-Test Phase.…
First, run a full test of the entire site.…That means clicking on every button…and visiting every page, polls,…and other content to ensure all works as intended.…We've done a lot of customization on the site…so it's important at this stage to ensure all works.…Even though this is a fairly small site,…it's important to click all the buttons, fill out every form…and make sure all the information gets…to the right place or the right person at the right time.…Second, test your site against as many platforms…
