Submitting a Website for Assessment and how others can help
Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of using CDAP. They are very similar to those that apply to the Website Hospital.
Your website should perform satisfactorily in a particular browser/device combination before submitting the website for test. The Thread Title should include the URL for the website. In your starting post you should give full details of the following:
Details of what you know works re:
- Operating system
- Screen Resolution
Note that, as with all links in all Cre8asite Forums, links are not spidered by search engines and so entries will give zero advantage in search engine optimization. Please only use this service if you have a genuine interest in having our members assist you with cross-browser compatibility issues.
Be as detailed as possible in your introductory post. What are the important browser/device combinations you would like covered? Also add your URL to the body of the initial post. This will make it easy for a reviewer to click onto your site and thus increase the likelihood that they will do so.
Do keep in touch with the thread fairly frequently. Reviewers may be trying to ask you questions. Your chances of getting a complete assessment go up if all the posts happen in a short period of time.
You will also find the Tips on Getting a Better Website Review in the Website Hospital are useful here too.
Finally this only works if people with different browser/devices are willing to review the websites of others. So give back to Cre8asite and to CDAP by being there for others, particularly if you use the process yourself.
