Version 6.7.0 of Go Live Update Urls plugin is now available and ready for general use.
This version focused on providing more information when domain tests fail.
Unable to Verify Whether This Site is Accessible
There are a few cases where the plugin is unable to verify whether a new URL will be accessible on the current site after update. These cases include but are not limited to:
- The Old URL does not match the current site’s domain.
- Really nothing to check here as we’re not updating the site’s domain.
- The URL is a subdirectory.
- WordPress will redirect requests to subdirectories.
Previously, you would receive a simple, “Unable to verify whether this site is accessible from the New URL” message. Now the plugin will provide more context to why the URL can’t be verified.
This Site is not Accessible
If the site can deterministically not be reached on the new URL, the plugin will provide a “This site is not accessible when the Old URL is replaced with the New URL” message.
Now the plugin will attempt to detect common issues and assist with more information on why the site cannot be reached. One example of a returned info message is “The DNS for the New URL is not pointed to this server.”
wp_parse_url does a pretty good job of breaking a provided URL into parts using some standard PHP functions. It fails however on relative URL. The new
get_domain method will return the domain of a URL, regardless of its structure. This is very useful when attempting to determine the status of a domain.
