WordPress Beta Tester

Descripción

This plugin provides an easy way to get involved with Beta testing WordPress.

Once installed it will enable you to upgrade your blog to the latest Beta or Release candidate at the click of a button using the built in upgrader.

By default once enabled it switches your blog onto the point release development track.

For the more adventurous there is the option to switch to the bleeding edge (trunk) of development.

Don’t forget to backup before you start!

PRs are welcome on GitHub.

Reseñas

Not recommended for 4.8.3

When I activated my plugins page returns 503: Server runs out of time. Deactivated this plugin and all back to normal. Not recommended for 4.8.3!

Must-have for any theme or plugin developer

This plugin works great, as advertised.

A lot of people complain that you can’t revert the DB changes. I bet (hope) that they are not plugin developers. The plugin warns you about this. You are meant to keep a backup of your site first. If you are testing in a container such as docker or a VM, then it’s even easier.

This highlights the issue that user reviews are not always reliable. A lot of users click on plugins and run arbitrary code on their sites without even reading the readme, then they come here and complain. Makes you wonder if there should be a feature on this site for users to rate the usefulness of reviews. Oh well, I’m getting side-tracked!

Anyway, thanks for a great plugin.

Good. But Please note:

Good. But Please note: (This is the bleeding edge development code which may be unstable at times. Only use this if you really know what you are doing.)

A Must have Developer Plugin

Very useful to test plugins against latest beta/rc versions.

But keep in mind, that this plugin is designed for developers only to use it on their development sites – never try to use it on a production site! you may not to be able to go back to stable releaes!

Excellent – Usage: For Development testing ONLY

I see a lot of 1 star reviews from people who obviously do not understand what this plugin is for. It is ONLY for Development testing and should ONLY be installed on a Development site/server. This plugin should ONLY be used by Coders and Developers (plugin authors, theme authors, custom coders) to test their code against the latest non-Publicly released WordPress versions. If you install this plugin on a Development site then there would be no reason to change to a publicly released Production version of WordPress since this plugin is ONLY for Development sites/servers and NOTHING else.

If you want to install and use this plugin then create a Development WordPress website (a copy of your Live Production website). If you accidentally installed this plugin on a Live Production website then restore your website from a backup.
