Managed Plugin Updates: Visual Regression Testing

Managed Plugin Updates utilizes AI to perform visual regression testing after running updates on your sites. By visually comparing a series of pages before and after the updates are run, any discrepancies can be identified and your website can be quickly rolled back to its pre-update state!


Flywheel’s AI tools will verify the homepage by default, and up to 19 other pages chosen at random, as long as a sitemap is present. If there is a failure on any page, Managed Plugin Updates will rollback the plugin updates and restore your entire site to its previous state.


You can easily add a sitemap to your WordPress site with a plugin such as Yoast SEO or XML Sitemaps.


Sites running WooCommerce will have their cart, checkout and my-account pages verified, along with 3 random category pages and 13 random product pages.


Multisites with under 49 subsites will have the following pages verified:

  • Homepage of the main site (the main site is defined as the site ID 1 and uses the wp_options table)
  • Homepages of all subsites

Multisites with 49 or more subsites will have the following pages verified:

  • Homepage of the main site
  • Homepages of the first 49 subsites (site numbers 51 and greater will not be verified)
