Synthesis Site Sensor


Site Sensor is a site uptime checking service that checks key content publishing features of WordPress sites in addition to basic UP/DOWN reporting. Sensor’s WordPress plugin enables Site Sensor’s uptime checker to retrieve WordPress specific integrity information including the validity of RSS Feeds, XML Sitemap, WordPress Privacy Setting, and WordPress Update status.

  • Validation that a site’s xml sitemap matches the most recent post.
