Functionality Testing

There are 3 main functions we need to test to ensure everything is working.
Button & actions

Button & actions connection testing (Pro Version)

We only need one button to work to test if the functionality is working. Creating a Tag is the easy one to test with.
Create A Test Tag
Navigate to your buttons in your Pack building blocks. Insert > Packs > Wordpress To Coda
In your Pack building Blocks, drag over your “Create tag” button to your canvas.
Click the button and watch for the pop up.

Success

For a successful test we are looking for the green tick pop up with “1 external action performed”.
You can also check your “Coda Test Tag” has been created within your Wordpress site under Posts > Tags or by syncing your Tag table again which you will do in the next step.
If successful you can confirm this account connection part is working and all other buttons and actions should also work.
