How do I test WordPress plugin conflicts?

I'm a pretty experienced WordPress administrator. What's the best way to test a WordPress site with multiple plugins to see which might be conflicting with PilotPress?

If you don't know which plugin is conflicting, deactivate all of your plugins except for PilotPress and ONTRApage (if installed). Test the login function using the process below. Activate one of the plugins and test the login function again. If the plugin does not conflict, deactivate it and continue the process until you have tested all the plugins with only PilotPress active. This should identify the plugin that conflicts.

Testing Process WordPress remembers your administrative login, even in a private or incognito window. This is a persistent problem in troubleshooting WordPress issues, as you may appear to be logged in as a user but really have Admin rights. To start this testing process, create a new test Contact in ONTRAPORT and grant the Contact the membership level or Partner Program access you want to test. You can keep ONTRAPORT open while you test to see if the login is recorded in that contact's Contact Record if you wish. Then, each and every time you activate a plugin to test, follow this process:

  1. Open a new private or incognito tab in your browser. Instructions are here for Firefox and Chrome.
  2. In the private tab or window, clear the cookies for your WordPress site. This step is absolutely required. To see instructions on how to clear cookies in different browsers click HERE.
  3. Go to the default login page for your WordPress site by adding "/wp-login.php" to your domain. Example: http://www.your-domain.com/wp-login.php.
  4. Login as your new contact and verify the navigation.
  5. When finished testing the new contact log out and close the private tab or window.

Steps 1 through 5 must be completed in order with each test of an activated plugin.
