FAQ

Can I safely upgrade from V1.x to V2?

Yes, you can upgrade without a problem to the new version. Just be informed that the shortcodes with -nh in the end are not supported any more. Also some attributes in shortcodes have been changed. I would advise you to check your shortcodes and settings after upgrading. All old settings/options will be deleted from your WordPress installation, only the main apikey will be copied to the new database.

Why does the function offline monitors to top change the manual order?

Please upgrade PHP to version 7 or higher to get the ordering correct. Without it you will have to choose if you preffer offline monitors to the top with ordering by id, or manual ordering.

Reviews

Does not play nice with existing Dashboard widgets

The dashboard widget of this plugin interferes with the style and working of existing widgets, making the wp dashboard freeze – so: unusable, uninstalled it. CSS issue? Untested? I installed another Uptime Robot plugin and that just works fine.

Flexible and easy to use

Works as advertised. We were able integrate it into our user interface to provide our members with great reporting data right on our site. Now they can check and see if their site is down or what their uptime is without having to open a ticket!

Excellent

Excellent fully working and buzzing about using. Now I am going to customise this bad boy and voila! Would recommend to all very much indeed. Easy to use and setup including getting an account. Absolute class and it’s free!

Great Plugin for UptimeRobot

Custom themes will need to edit the code. Here’s the status php file edited to work with custom themes. The issue was data would appear at the top of the page because echo is being used instead of return. https://gist.github.com/KeanePW/71048d8fbd09598891fc
