FakerPress is a clean way to generate fake and dummy content to your WordPress, great for developers who need testing
Whenever you create a new Theme or Plugin you will always need to create custom data to test whether your plugin is working or not, and as Developers ourselves we had this problem quite alot.
Our goal with this plugin is to fill this gap where you have problem with a good solution both for Developers and for Users of WordPress.
Note: This plugin requires PHP 5.3 or higher to be activated.
Normally a WordPress developer will need to perform the task of filling up an empty theme with dummy content, and doing this manually can be really time consuming, the main reasons this plugin was create was to speed up this process.
Create randomly generated attachments as the Featured Images for your WordPress dummy content.
WordPress has Meta for Users, Posts and Comments, FakerPress will allow you to generate custom dummy meta for all three, with 19 types of Data
After you are done with your testing it should be easy to delete all the content created using FakerPress, now you will be able to do it.
When creating dummy posts what you really want is that the HTML is really random so that you might see bugs that an XML import wouldn't.
When you are testing your website images are important, so FakerPress will allow you to output Images to your HTML tests.
For comments our plugin is prepared to generate a real Browser data instead of leaving the field empty.
For creating and assigning the terms you will have a much better tool that will allow you to select which kind of taxonomy you want to assign to your posts, and leaving the randomization to the plugin's code.
If you fill up your WordPress with any data for the user profiles you might not catch an edge case, this plugin will fill up the fields with data that will really matter in the tests.
