How to test WordPress plugins to get script conflicts

Content of the article

Use next algorithm to define what exactly does not work on your WordPress site after any changes with core, theme or/and plugins:

  • create site duplicate using plugin
  • create test subdomain on your site using hosting panel
  • install duplicate bundle on your test subdomain
  • on the test sub-domain deactivate all plugins except one main plugin (even change wp theme to default), for example WooCommerce
  • one by one activate plugins and check functionality on the place where you found the issue, maybe you will have to each time make hard reset of the browser cache
  • also test for conflicts your site cirrent wp theme - change theme to any default theme

Also in browser chrome press F12 to see js errors in console after each plugin activation as js+php errors from another plugins which can prevent functionality for another plugins. Do not forget to disable all kind of caches if they are enabled on your hosting.
