I’m tracking a bunch of website changes with this tool. It’s affordable and saves me time by automatically checking if stuff broke after updates, especially plugins.

I’ve been using this plugin for a while now and wouldn’t want to miss it. It works and helps to save both time and trouble. Updating my site is much less of a headache now.

This plugin is amazing! I’m managing websites with over 300+ pages and tons of externally embedded forms etc and it’s simply impossible to manually keep track of every little issue that might occur after an update or user fault (quite often even something as important as forms go missing). Now I’m simply getting an email with an overview of what has changed on the site and it only takes me a few seconds to notice if something isn’t the way it’s supposed to be, so I can go directly to the relevant page and fix it.

Finally I’ve been searching for a tool like this for a long time. It works smoothly and is exactly what I was looking for. I would totally recommend webchangedetector to other people with websites!
