The WordPress ecosystem is evolving at a relentless pace, with developers and website managers constantly seeking tools that can smoothen the transition between staging and production environments. Recognizing this need, we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes, and today, we’re thrilled to unveil our latest offering: the Environment Control Tools plugin!
Why “Environment Control Tools”?
Have you ever accidentally sent out emails from your staging site to customers because you overlooked deactivating your email plugin post-migration? Such mishaps, although seemingly minor, can have far-reaching consequences. This is where our new plugin steps in, acting as a bridge between your development and production environments, ensuring that each plugin behaves just the way you want it to, depending on the setting.
Key Features to Look Out For:
- Plugin Control: Dictate which plugins activate or deactivate based on your environment, ensuring optimal plugin behavior.
- Search Engine Visibility Control: Adjust site visibility (private/public) automatically based on the environment.
- Admin Bar & Favicon Control: Visually differentiate between staging and production with distinct admin bar colors and favicons.
We’ve also listed some recommended plugin configurations to maximize efficiency. From email controls to WooCommerce order testing, we guide you on how to optimize your staging site for smooth, error-free transitions.
