Sandbox Site powered by Playground

Beskrywing

With this plugin, you can:

  • Create a copy of your site in a private WordPress Playground instance.
  • Test plugins from the WordPress plugin directory without actually installing them on your site.

Your site is cloned in Playground by copying all the files and a database into WordPress Playground. It may sound scary, but your data stays safely with you and is not uploaded to any cloud service. Instead, your site’s data is shipped directly to your web browser where it stays only as long as you keep your browser tab open. That’s right! WordPress Playground runs a copy of your site directly on your device.

Usage

Starting a sandbox

  • Open /wp-admin/ on your site
  • Click on Sandbox Site in the Tools menu to load WordPress Playground with a copy of your site content

Testing a plugin

  • Open /wp-admin/ on your site
  • Click on Add Plugins in the Plugins menu
  • Find a plugin you want to test
  • Click the Preview Now button
  • The plugin will be installed and activated in WordPress Playground with a copy of your site content

All features

  • Start a sandbox of your site
  • Preview a plugin installation from the WordPress.org repository
  • Export Playground snapshots using Tools > Export

I really love the idea of quickly creating a staging website to test something. However, this does not (yet) work as expected: Themes and plugins are copied over, but not activated – while posts and pages are completely missing.
