Taking screenshots behind user login

Trakr provides a limited, experimental capability for taking a webpage screenshots behind a user login. This is useful if the URLs, web pages you are trying to test requires a user login. Please note that this is different from Basic authentication.

Standard user login support

Pre-configured user login feature is currently available for the following website platforms. We look to add support for more platforms in the future. Please let us know if you need user login support for a particular website platform.

  • Drupal 7/8
  • WordPress 4/5

Also please be aware these preconfigured user login support only works for STANDARD login screens for these systems. If you have a customized user login flow they might not work! Example of customized user login system includes:

  • 2-factor authentication
  • Social login (facebook, google) only
  • Single-sign-on (SSO)
  • Multi-step login process

If you have a customized login flow for the systems above or other types of website platform, please refer to the custom login instruction documentation.

An example of a standard Drupal 8.x login screen might look like below:
