Genuine Test Engine

Let’s face it. Updates or ugprades often cause display errors. Testing website manually can be very time consuming. With our Genuine Test Engine you can be more efficient. Perfect Dashboard will perform website test for you and point out where are possible display errors.

Genuine Test Engine analyses all changes in website layout, but also checks if all Social & SEO Tags are still in place. And it works with every website in the Internet. To be perfectly secure we are performing backup of your site (we also test integrity of this backup to see if everything is really fine)

Automated Backup Verification in Cloud

You don’t have a backup unless you know you can use it for website restoration. Restoring every website copy and checking it’s integrity is boring and takes ages. But we want you to be able to concentrate on more important tasks.

That’s why we give one-click backup that start a chain of actions which includes coping website, remote restoration, integrity testing and storing backup at chosen storage location. And that’s it.

Custom Changes Detector

(coming soon)

Editing CMS core files is a bad practice & editing extensions code is not recommended. At times, the website's security may be compromised because of that. You are also likely to include additional backups of your files because of that. But there are cases in which it’s difficult to customize website to client’s needs without it. That’s why Perfect Dashboard comes with a Custom Changes Detector.

It scans entire code for any modifications. Thanks to that you don’t need to remember yourself to copy these parts of the code to the updated website code. What is more, we provide resources on how to implement these modifications along with good practices, to save you time the next time you will do update or upgrade.

Not Limited to Joomla

Perfect Dashboard is not limited to any particular CMS. In fact, it has been crafted to work best with Joomla & WordPress (with backups, upgrades and updates included), but you can use Genuine Test Engine with every website in the Internet.

Thanks to that you are not limited to any particular technology. Whatever your choice will be, Perfect Dashboard will be there to make your work more efficient.

Automated TO DO list

Managing multiple websites in a time efficient manner requires excellent organization. Perfect Dashboard helps you boost your efficiency and security. Everyday we check your websites and create a personalized TO DO list for you with all the tasks you need to perform to keep websites you manage secure and safe from hackers and malware. You are one click away from performing backups, updates, upgrades and tests for all your websites.

Remote Development Environments

(coming soon)

Don’t want to update or ugprade live websites? No problem. With Perfect Dashboard you can create a development environment in our cloud and perform an update or ugprade with just one click. We will make a backup of your site and send it to a remote server. Then you can review test results, optionally correct some display errors and publish a new version with just another one click.

Git Integration

(coming soon)

Perfect Dashboard can fit into any workflow. With git integration you can easily include it into any staging process you have. This way, you can enjoy the benefits of Perfect Dashboard without having to change the way your work is organized.

Why people use Perfect Dashboard?

80% of websites are susceptible to hacking as their software is not updated or upgraded regularly plus they do not perform regular backups. Perfect Dashboard is a solution to this problem. It’s the one place you will ever need to manage all websites efficiently. It’s designed to work with WordPress and Joomla, but you can use it with every website. It effectively scratches website's security off your list.

To protect brand reputation

Hackers are getting clever. Getting access to a vulnerable website is just a first step for them. Then, they use this website to infect unprotected computers of people who visit it. Imagine the consequences when it’s revealed that it was your website that had spread malware to others. Regular website updates, upgrades and backups are the easiest way to shield yourself from that risk. Make your website's security your top priority!

Every website should be updated

Both WordPress and Joomla are great tools to build beautiful, feature-rich websites in an efficient way. But that’s not their main advantage. The best part is that because they are so popular, their security is tested on a daily basis. And every month there is a security fix release. That is why Joomla and WordPress are considered much safer than any custom CMS solution. However, this is true only if the website software is regularly updated / upgraded and the backups are regularly performed. Otherwise, the website becomes vulnerable to hacking and malware.

Updating is boring

Everybody knows it. First, you need to backup and restore it to check if it’s ok. Then you need to install updates one by one. After that, you need to check if nothing got broken during the update / upgrade and the website is working normally. And finally you have to fix possible display errors. And it gets more complicated if you do not want to perform an update or an upgrade on a live website. Top security can be really tedious.

To save 50% time spent on updates

But updating doesn’t have to be this way. Imagine a tool that does the backup and automatically restores it remotely. Then it installs all the updates and upgrades and tests the website for you, pointing out potential errors you should fix. All with just one click. And this tool has a name. It’s Perfect Dashboard.

To manage more websites & increase income

With Perfect Dashboard, every web developer can become a professional website maintenance provider and offer management services and top security at compelling prices. This turns one-time clients into a recurring source of income. Branded reports, that can be generated from Perfect Dashboard, help to show what actions has been undertaken and make a great attachment to a monthly invoice.

To make the Internet a safer place

But it’s not only about the money. It’s about making the Internet a safer place. It’s about how decision makers see Joomla and WordPress. Right now, their reputation is tarnished as, according to recent research, every minute some outdated WordPress/Joomla website is being hacked and malware is being installed on them. Typically they do not have any backup or if they do have one it is outdated. We want to change this and prove that a regularly updated Joomla or WordPress is far more secure than most custom CMS. But we need your help. Together we can accomplish this goal and prove that a CMS security we are working with is rock solid.

How to update Joomla 1.5 with Perfect Dashboard

Officially, Perfect Dashboard supports Joomla 2.5 & 3.x only. However, here’s a trick how to use Perfect Dashboard test engine with older Joomla versions.

1. Do the backup using third party plugin/tool (Akeeba Backup recommended)
2. Add your website as “other” on Perfect Dashboard
3. Generate test
4. Update / upgrade your website manually from admin panel
5. Go back again to Perfect Dashboard and run test
6. Review the test results and fix the bugs, if needed

And it's all done!

For now, using Perfect Dashboard with older Joomla versions, lets you save time while testing. However, we plan to support Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 (including backups, updates and upgrades) in the nearest future.


What Perfect Dashboard aims to do it now does very well

Ease of use

Simple installation options and the ability to control the functionality very easy


Simply excellent. Whenever I have needed support it has been truly excellent. Very easy to get hold of, very knowledgeable and eager to help


Clear and concise

I used this to: Managing over a dozen website, both Joomla and Wordpress. Makes things very, very simple and straightforward when it comes to updates, backups and security. I've been using Perfect Dashboard since the beta release and it has developed into a mature and well designed product.


Very functional. Many great features that make for less work.

Ease of use

Installation process is sometimes a little tricky and took a couple tries on some websites, but once I got the hang of it, very smooth.


Support has been great! Chat support has been very handy as well as a "contact support team" button for every failed action.


Very good and easy to understand.

I used this to: I manage about 10 websites, a mix of Joomla and WordPress. This extension gives me one central place where I can see any new updates required, but best of all a place to monitor my offsite backups and restore them if needed. If a backup fails, there is a one-click "retry" button.
