So GTmetrix.com thinks they have helped us, by creating a whole new version of their very good website testing site. Unfortunately they have not. They have just made it more difficult to find the results we are used to! Luckily I have found a switch within their settings that puts it all back the way it should be. Don’t get me wrong I like change and improvements, but it seems they have made such a change that one does not know where to start.
To enable the switch back to the old one have a look at thy following images and start reverting.
1. Find the account link
2. Switch to Legacy Reports
3. Change this switch too, if you have this slide out “Page Settings” button, just to make sure.
4. Now just select the enable legacy switch.
5. Run a test and check that the old style reports show up. Job done.
Now I just hope GTmetrix leave them alone! (Now I should start work on my website speed again!)
GTmetrix page speed test is very good, and there are not that many others I could use as a GTmetrix alternative. Yes Pingdom speed test is ok, but not as good in my opinion. There are many GTmetrix benefits that I could mention over others. But if you are looking for a free website speed test GTmetrix.com seems the best bet. now the old version is enabled again, I can still say it’s one of the best website testing tools around.
