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)

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.

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.
