Plugin Test Drive

Test any wordpress plugin before activating it.

Plugin Test Drive lets you take any plugin for a test drive, see if suits your needs before letting your site visitors experience it.

Set options for any plugin to see how it works for you before activating it.

  • Test plugin functionality in both admin dashboard and the front end site.

  • Change options and style of plugins until they blend perfectly in your site/blog.

  • Compare different plugins to find out which one best suits your needs.

  • Once you are done testing and the plugin is ready to be up and running, you can then activate it.

How Does it work?

  • Plugin Test Drive lets you load wordpress plugins conditionally by user name or IP address. While the tested plugins are visible and fully functional for you, they are invisible to others.

  • Testing plugins is safe. When you select a plugin for testing, PTD validates it the same way WordPress validates a plugin when you activate it. If the plugin fails the validation test, PTD will let you know about it and will not test that plugin.
