Health Check 1.2.0

Health Check was updated to version 1.2.0, from version 1.1.2. Changelog:

  • Changed plugin name, it now better describes the plugins two primary purposes.
  • Changed the Health Check tab, it’s now named Site Status, as we used the old name too many places and it was confusing.
  • Site status tests now run asynchronously, making the page load much faster.
  • The HTTPS tests now also check your Site URL settings to make sure they are following recommended best practices.
  • Fixed a warning preventing plugin names from displaying on the front-end in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue where you might get a 500 error if you tried using Troubleshooting Mode while using a child theme.
  • Automatically disable/enable a plugin or theme in Troubleshooting Mode if they are detected to cause errors.
  • Introduce a new dashboard widget during Troubleshooting Mode (and a simplified version on the plugins screen) to better explain what is going on, and make available actions more discoverable than the admin menu is.
  • Some text improvements throughout the plugin.
  • When loopback tests fail, we previously tested all plugins at once, for sites that have many plugins this may fail as the request times out. We now test one plugin at a time to avoid this, while also showing more information at the tests are running to the end user.
