If the PC and tablet are on the same network, it is possible. All you'd need to do is use the IP address of the PC to access the site. So instead of accessing it via localhost (as you would on the PC), you'd access it via 192.168.1.2 (example). If the devices are not on the same network, it's still possible to access the PC with the tablet if you setup ...

Adding the height and width attributes to your IMG SRC HTML tag allows the browser to know how much space to leave for an image. Without these values, the browser gives an image no space until the image is loaded, which means anything surrounding the image is adjusted after the image has loaded. http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001158.htm

The browser requests this for performance. Say you have a paragraph of text with an image of 100x100 pixels in the top left corner. Browser builds the page, no image yet, so it builds it with just text The image now loads, and suddenly there's space needed Browser rebuilds the page, with the proper room for the image If you give width and height to the ...

This is quite doable. XAMPP should work fine for this. The biggest gotchas will be converting any code that does not use relative addressing to work with a domain and HTTPS. You can likely get closer to your goal by using the hosts file on your computer to create a domain name (but only have it work on computers with a modified hosts file) WordPress is a ...

I've always used the favicon generator at realfavicongenerator.net, which allows you to see how your chosen artwork will appear on different devices. There are quite a few options and you can try with their example icon to test. Start with a square SVG for the best results as the site will convert it to the necessary formats and give you a compressed folder ...

Piwik has a plugin called the 'Visitor Generator' which can generate fake data for testing purposes. It is available here, on the Piwik Plugins Marketplace. You can use it to generate 100% fake data or a mix of fake and real data from your own logs. A blog post giving a features overview with sample commands is here, on the Piwik blog. If you want to just ...

One thing that others have not mentioned yet is competitor speed metrics. If you score an 86/100 and you have a competitor site that is very similar to yours (i.e. similar backlink profile and on-page signals) and they are scoring 96/100, then they probably have a good chance of ranking higher. Now, that is a made up hypothetical situation because there are ...

I'm going to break your question into two parts: Where can I send test email? Send test email to a disposable email address service. [1] These services automatically create an inbox for any email you send to them. You can then read the messages in the inbox through their web site, without registration and without a password. For example, I can send an ...

Is the sending email address in the contact lists of your Yahoo and Gmail receiving accounts? This might avoid the spam treatment.

The easiest way is to modify your hosts file to hardcode the domain name to the new IP address temporarily. See this guide for OS-specific instructions. Don't forget to remove the entry again after you're done testing. Alternatively, you could setup a temporary test subdomain for each site on the new server (test.example.com), set it up as an alias, and use ...

Case 1 When you know number of occurrences to be substituted in the existing request: Take a loop counter define it with loop count as the number of occurrences you need to substitute. Insert a CSV data set config as child into it and a Counter (this will generate that many occurrences variable.) Use a beanshell to fetch the values from CSV data set config ...

There is no mass checking that I can see. Especially against Google. **WARNING: Google will block asscess for the following reasons: It feels as though you are trying to scrape, reverse engineer SERPs, or submit mass queries by an agent of any kind. This incudes using the Google API. Google will also block IP addresses that appear in some black-lists. Which ...

Perhaps the Google mobile friendly test is of use to your study. You can input a URL and the tool tests a variety of responsive parameters. The test also says which parameters have been tested and which have been found not responsive. https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

I'm not sure what your question is aimig at – and your question is also rather broad – Responsive Design is a wide field. You may also consider asking over at http://ux.stackexchange.com – I have the feeling you might get more suitable answers than here. That said I'll try to answer: if you just want to check for 'responsiveness' (yes/no) then media ...

Absolutely. For doing everything on your computer (or locally), I recommend Local by Flywheel. While the other answers (XAMPP, Docker) work great, I think Local by Flywheel greatly simplifies the process of setting up a local environment much better. It sets up a WordPress site with a domain name that can only be accessed thru the computer it is installed in....

It is quite trivial do do so. The simplest way is just to pretend you have a domain by adding it to your internal network. If you only develop on one computer, then just change the hosts (/etc/hosts on Unix) file to point a name to your local computer's IP address (Done this dozens of time, it is that simple!) Then you just develop normally using the name ...

If the 86/100 is the mobile score, the desktop score is likely ~95-100. I have many sites that score like this, and have no problems ranking content on either desktop or mobile. This will not hinder pages on your site from ranking. However, sinces Google's recent Page Experience Update, it does mean that you may lose a tie breaker where the decision is ...

Okay. I used to develop large-scale applications for global telecoms, major global NGOs, etc. Periodically, someone would interject themselves into the process for what ever reason. Be careful, sometimes they have sway and their demands can become a requirement. Just keep that in mind. In each case, there is a client and while it is easy to think it is the ...

Nothing stands out as worrisome to me in your test results. Of note is that some of your requests take well over a second to load, but that is to be expected on any very cheap shared hosting provider. Regarding the bandwidth limit, that is an internal NameCheap policy as the soft-caps for "unlimited" plans vary by hosting provider. Unless you are running a ...

You need any A/B testing tools to allow you two create two different versions of the same page(s) and test which design or modifications yields the best results. Google Analytics is a free alternative that will allow you to run "Content Experiments", you will need to know how Google Analytics reports work and properly interpret the experiments results. ...

The Firefox add-on NoScript should be able to block all JavaScript, including the JS included in the current page. Just make sure that you don’t enable the setting that the current page is always allowed to run JS (it’s the first setting in the first tab).

I came up with an answer finally after an year. now i am using HTTP watch extension. https://www.httpwatch.com/download/ Go to the above URL and download the free edition. Run the .exe file.

I am struggling with GA too. I cannot find the query string parameters in IE, but I can use the Developer Tool in Chrome. Click the Network tab and filter the GIF file sent to Google server, then click the name of GIF file and click on the header.

Here's a few to try: Google's page-speed insights webpagetest.org pingdom.com try.powermapper.com Also, you want to make sure your server is in good working order and not hacked. Hacked servers can cause unpredictable results regardless of the testing website you use.

You can replace the real domain with your local ip modifying the host file in your computer (if you are using Windows). Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and look for the hosts file. Then add an entry in it like: 127.0.0.1 thelivedomain.com A global text search & replace should work as well but I think the host approach is more safe.
