Testing a website

Add the website

First you must add the website to Sitebeam so it can be tested.

Test the website

Now you can test the website(s) that you have added. If you completed the steps above, you will be taken to a new screen.

  1. Under Type of Report, select the type of report you wish to run. Each option will run a different selection of tests. If you choose Custom you can select exactly which tests you wish to run yourself.
  2. If you chose Custom, an additional area called Tests will appear. You can then selected desired tests from the list on the left, and click the Add button to move them to the list on the right. The list on the right shows which tests will be run.
  3. You can optionally change the number of pages which will be tested. The default appears in the Limit to box. Testing fewer pages is quicker, and in many cases it is preferable to test fewer pages to get a quick sample of a site.
  4. Optionally, check the Email me when this report is finished box.
  5. Click on OK to queue up your report.
  6. After a short while, you should start to see a screen summarizing the progress of your report(s). You can choose to watch this screen, or to go elsewhere – your reports will carry on running regardless. If you stay on the screen, you will be taken to your report when it is finished automatically.
