Once you’ve installed Page Checker on your browser toolbar, you can run the bookmarklet across any web page on your site.
Page Checker works on both your live site and your staging site.
Using Page Checker
1. Navigate to the page you want to validate.
2. Click the Page Checker button in your browser toolbar or favorites list, it will open the current site in a new tab
3. Page Checker will then highlight on the left hand side any errors on the page , please note the additional Spelling and Broken Links tabs which will load issues for those categories.
What will I see?
The left-hand pane lists any checkpoints that contain issues.
A red flag indicates any high-priority checkpoints.
Click on a checkpoint, and the web page you are validating will load into the right-hand pane, with the error(s) highlighted.
Broken links and misspellings on the page are reported in their own separate tabs.
To find out more about a checkpoint click the ‘i’ icon next to it for a popup with further information.
Sometimes it’s easier to identify and fix an error if you can see where it appears in the code – to do this, just toggle between the browser view and the source code view of the page using the tabs.
Within the source code view of a page, if there are multiple instances where the page fails the checkpoint you can use the navigation toolbar to cycle between them.
Page Checker tests your links in real-time – so if your page contains a lot of links, you can check how many links still have to be tested by viewing the progress bar.
Page Checker can validate your page for spelling mistakes. The language used to check against the page will be based on the spelling language that was set up from the dashboard page checker was installed from
If Page Checker identifies errors, simply return to your CMS to correct them. Once you’ve made your changes, you can then run Page Checker again to validate the corrected page.
Using Page Checker speeds up the publishing process and means web editors no longer need to spend long hours reading up on the latest standards.
