Getting the best our of your Netumo monitors.
Netumo can monitor any web page on the internet and alert you when the site is down or when the content is not matching what it should be.
Setting up a correct Netumo monitor is very important to get the best out of Netumo and ensure proper notifications are in place.
In this article we are going to go through the steps that are required for setting up a correct Netumo monitor.
Select textual content from your site that should not change, otherwise whenever the content changes you would have to update the Netumo monitor making such monitors difficult to maintain.
Monitor for specific content
In the above options it is important to pick data and information that is coming from a database (in case one is in use). Most websites platforms such as WordPress, Drupal Weebly, Shopify, Squarespace, WiX, Dreamhost, GoDaddy and so on all utilize some database on the back-end. If the database is offline or there is an issue, your website would still load but without any content.
Open the site and page in a web browser. Make sure your view is in desktop view. Right click anywhere on the page and select “View page source”
Search for the visible text you need to monitor.
Copy the code. You can simple copy the rendered text part but you can also add the HTML tags. It is not necessary to pick a huge chunk of code. A small snippet is enough as this would also help in case your website is powered via a theme, and upgrades to the theme would not effect the monitor.
Now head on to Netumo Console and select Websites/Hosts … Add Monitor. Enter the HTML code in the Netumo monitor section. Make sure to set a proper frequency. You do not need to monitor all pages from the same website at the same frequency.
We suggest to have monitors
This monitoring frequency will ensure that you get notified when the website is down or there are serious issues with it, and other minor issues would be highlighted within a 30 to maximum 60 time window.
Finally test the monitor in Netumo to see that all is correct and the content matched the page. And once this passes save the monitor.
Let’s assume we need to monitor this block and pick article as the main monitor element. One thing to point out is that this blog is hosted on the wordpress platform and all content is coming from a MySQL database.
Clicking “View page source” will show the source of this article. We picked a sub header that is part of the content and coming from the database just as all of the content is:
<h2>The monitor setup process</h2>
This header section is unlikely to change and that entire text can be entered in the HTML code to match inside of Netumo.

WordPress is one of the most popular Content Management System (CMS) used to power numerous websites. WordPress is very powerful particularly with the aid of the vast amount of plugins that exist allowing powerful customizations out of the box to both design and functionality.
Compatibility issues arise mainly when different updates are applied to the various WordPress platform and the plugins. There are various update points and various versions at play. WordPress itself upgrades automatically, while on the other hand in normal circumstances plugins do not and have to be manually updated. When plugins are updated all their functionality needs to be checked to ensure that the updates did not have any negative effect.
Things to monitor on a wordpress page
Monitoring with Netumo is very easy. All you need to do is get a Free account today by visiting Netumo.com and registering for an account. One you are logged in hit the Start Monitoring now to set up your first monitor.
Pick HTML content from your page that is important and unique to that page. Ensure that this content is always part of the page. For example if your is a blog do not pick text from a particular blog post to monitor your hOmepage since that would change every time you post a new post, but target the site header, menu or banner. It is not suggested to pick a huge chunk of HTML code. A small piece should be enough.
Finally test your monitor. Put the WordPress site in Maintenance mode, hide a particular post or put a product hidden to ensure that your monitor is working as it should.

Netumo was born over 5 years ago as a simple yet smart way of monitoring domains and websites. Since then this project grew to a fully blown service monitoring thousands of domains, sites and hosts.
Back then our team was small, and we opted for simple features, with the idea of small users and teams in mind like us. Since then our user base has gown and we have also acquired more complex organizations who have different requirements yet still love the idea of simple website monitoring.
One of the biggest challenges we faced with larger organizations is that for them one user is not enough. Larger organizations have different teams with numerous people and sharing of the credentials is surely not an option. Hence we have invested in supporting these organizations by launching what we call teams (multi-user) support.
The benefits include:
This new functionality in Netumo gives us the ability to serve better larger organizations that handle larger teams and also have more site under management which need monitoring. Each Netumo plan has been specially designed to come with a different size of team capacity depending on the size of the organization.
