In designing some sites, web design may not take long, but testing it can be time consuming and tedious, and it can take up too much of your energy.
This is very frustrating for the web designer and has happened to every design. This will leave you frustrated or depressed and tired, and will cause you to close the project with bugs and problems as soon as possible and deliver it to the customer.
In order to perform the test operation in a practical and correct way, in this article, we describe the common problems during the test and provide suggestions to improve the performance of the site designer as much as possible.

How to test a site
Website testing steps vary depending on the type of work and team, but the most common and best way to test the website is as follows in four steps and their order can be changed according to need:
Test after finishing the appearance of the work
After completing the coding on the appearance of the website, the site designer must once again test and check the display and non-display of information by inserting information in all fields and parts of the site. By doing this, both test information enters the site and better displays the appearance of the website, as well as the defects and problems of the website are identified.
In this section, the assigned tasks are performed one by one based on the programmer’s analysis.
If the test is performed by someone else, after testing by the programmer, the tester will test the completed sections. At this stage, the tester is obliged to inform the programmer or analyst in case of any discrepancy with the main analysis and the customer’s opinion, and to ask the programmer the reason for the change in performance.
If the programmer does the test himself, it is necessary to test them step by step after the completion of each part.
