How to test for conflicts with other plugins

Sometimes things in one of our plugins don’t seem to work how you would expect – clicking a link doesn’t work, something displays a little awkward, etc. It is possible there is a conflict with another plugin or even your theme. To help identify if there is a conflict follow these steps:

  • Temporarily disable all plugins except your WP Sunshine plugin having issues. You can use the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin to disable plugins only for yourself while your site visitors see everything active as normal if you have a busy website and don’t want to disable essential plugins for the rest of your site to function.
  • Check to see if the specific functionality is now working.
  • If yes, great! Now enable the other plugins one-by-one until the functionality breaks again – now we know the culprit of the conflict.
  • If the functionality still does not work as expected, use a default WordPress theme to see if the theme was the source of the conflict.
  • If nothing still works with all other plugins disabled and a default WordPress theme, submit a support ticket for further investigation.
