Whenever you create a new Theme or Plugin you will always need to create custom data to test whether your plugin is working or not, and as Developers ourselves we had this problem quite alot.

Our goal with this plugin is to fill this gap where you have problem with a good solution both for Developers and for Users of WordPress.

Note: This plugin requires PHP 7.4 or higher to be activated.

Creating Dummy Content

Normally a WordPress developer will need to perform the task of filling up an empty theme with dummy content, and doing this manually can be really time consuming, the main reasons this plugin was create was to speed up this process.

Random Featured Images

Create randomly generated attachments as the Featured Images for your WordPress dummy content.

Create random Meta Information

WordPress has Meta for Users, Posts, Terms and Comments, FakerPress will allow you to generate custom dummy meta for all four, with 20 types of Data

Delete the Content Generated

After you are done with your testing it should be easy to delete all the content created using FakerPress, now you will be able to do it.

Generate Random HTML

When creating dummy posts what you really want is that the HTML is really random so that you might see bugs that an XML import wouldn’t.

Generate Images in your HTML

When you are testing your website images are important, so FakerPress will allow you to output Images to your HTML tests.

Real Browser data on User Comments

For comments our plugin is prepared to generate a real Browser data instead of leaving the field empty.

Random Terms generation

For creating and assigning the terms you will have a much better tool that will allow you to select which kind of taxonomy you want to assign to your posts, and leaving the randomization to the plugin’s code.

Real random User profiles

If you fill up your WordPress with any data for the user profiles you might not catch an edge case, this plugin will fill up the fields with data that will really matter in the tests.

We moved away from Transifex due to the new GlotPress on WordPress.org, so if you want to translate FakerPress to your language please follow this guidelines.

See room for improvement?

Great! There are several ways you can get involved to help make FakerPress better:

  1. Report Bugs: If you find a bug, error or other problem, please report it! You can do this by creating a new topic in the plugin forum. Once a developer can verify the bug by reproducing it, they will create an official bug report in GitHub where the bug will be worked on.
  2. Suggest New Features: Have an awesome idea? Please share it! Simply create a new topic in the plugin forum to express your thoughts on why the feature should be included and get a discussion going around your idea.
  3. Issue Pull Requests: If you’re a developer, the easiest way to get involved is to help out on issues already reported in GitHub. Be sure to check out the contributing guide for developers.

Thank you for wanting to make FakerPress better for everyone! We salute you.

have used this plugin several times when I needed to test WordPress sites with certain content. Specifically it was a lifesaver as I built it my simple user listing plugin! Bugs fixed quickly and open to adding useful features. A+ support as well

Practical and sophisticated at one time . Easily customisable, it allows you to re-create all the typical conditions of a real site. I love it!

This plugin does exactly what it has been created. It has a clean interface, is fast, and has a wipe button—nothing more to add.
