Introducing site health checks and email notifications

[NEW] Site Health Checks & Email Notifications for Instagram and Facebook

Almost a week after announcing our new Social Media Blocks feature, we’re back already with another huge announcement…

Health check notifications and email alerts for our Instagram and Facebook Feed plugins!

Ever check out your own website, only to realize it’s broken?

It’s a sinking feeling. How long has it looked like that? Have you lost visitors or revenue because something’s not working the way it should?

The unfortunate truth is, social media platforms aren’t 100% reliable. If you’re not checking your website every day, you might miss the fact that something went wrong.

That’s why we decided to help you out and let you know ASAP if your social media feeds aren’t working.

Notifications in the wordpress dashboard

This can be caused by a few common errors:

  • Expired or invalid access tokens
  • Your website failing to connect to Instagram or Facebook
  • Your feed having trouble updating because of an error with Facebook or Instagram

Plus, if you’re logged in to your site as an admin, you’ll also see notifications on the front end of your site.

And that’s not all…

WordPress Site Health Check Notifications

We’ve also added notifications in the WordPress Site Health tool, so you’ll instantly know if there’s something strange going on that needs your attention.

The Site Health Check feature in WordPress is a handy tool that helps you keep an eye on any security and performance issues that might affect your website.

You can find it under Tools » Site Health from your admin area. From there you can see the overall health score of your site with a high score showing your site is running under optimal conditions.

Email Notifications

To complement the WordPress notifications, you’ll receive an email once a week if you haven’t fixed the issues with your feeds.
