Support » Plugin: Health Check & Troubleshooting » Indispensable for Isolating Problems on Active Sites

    The ability to temporarily change themes and plugins on an active site without affecting other users is absolutely the best thing I’ve ever encountered in building websites. To manually do everything this plugin does would take hours if not days. It’ll let you root out conflicts in no time, or at least as fast as you can run a test scenario.

    Make no mistake, this is not a magic bullet. You still may need to do the debugging work, but it goes so much faster. If you’re lucky, the status and debug screens will flag the problem right away. If not, the troubleshooting mode will at least isolate the problem to a specific theme or plugin.

    I was initially reluctant to use this plugin because of many low ratings, but then I realized that the vast majority of low ratings were related to earlier versions. After seeing in the health-check support forum how everyone posting received help and invariably got their problem resolved, it put my reservations to rest and I went ahead and installed this plugin. I never looked back, it’s awesome!

    I now recommend health-check to everyone who appears to be experiencing a conflict of some sort. I personally have not heard of anyone I’ve helped having trouble with this plugin. Because of my active involvement in the WordPress support forums, I realize my opinion on this could be biased, but I’m absolutely certain I would be equally pleased if I was brand new to WordPress and encountered a problem.
