New Visual Comparison Tool
This is the new innovation that LiquidWeb rolls out. The new visual comparison tool can offer users more control of plug-in installations. Once there is a new plug-in ready, this new tool will automatically take snapshots of users’ websites before as well as after the installation, so as to see whether the plug-in changes how their websites look.
If no visual change happens, then the ready plug-in will automatically install on users’ WordPress sites. However, if any difference occurs, then the plug-in update will be rolled back, while users will receive an email to remain them to review the differences. In addition, there is an option available for users to manually install the update.
This visual comparison tool not only ensures that LiquidWeb offers users the latest code and update their sites, but also gives users the chance to learn if the update will alter their site look and the option to install it or not. The feature makes LiquidWeb managed WordPress hosting more flexible and user-friendly.
