Is your Joomla site down again? This widget simply tests all your sites to see if they are up and running or down in a heap of dead bytes. This widget runs on your desktop regardless of whether it is MAC Os/X or Windows XP/Vista/ Windows 7 & 8+.

site-status.jpgIt also works with all websites and not just Joomla/Virtuemart CMS web sites. Simply add the URL of any site to the list and it will do the work for you.

It provides a simple running list of all the sites you specify. A simple interface allows you to add or delete sites as you require. Each site is checked by both an http request and a ping. If a site fails then it is flagged as being in error by both visual and audible means. 

Site tests are grouped into 'jobs', the running interval of jobs can be modified as can the pause between each individual site test, to allow for slow network connections.

Tests can be initiated manually and the alarm sounds muted by a simple yet elegant interface. This version of the multi-site status tool has a slightly steampunk design though this could be easily changed on request.

This widget is the enhanced version that has these extra improved capabilities:

1. save the site list list to a file
2. open site lists as required

Please donate towards a beer for us.


yahoo-widgets-logo.png As this widget uses the yahoo widget runtime it means it will run on Macs and Windows PCs with no changes whatsoever. You will need the Yahoo widget runtime for this widget to run. Get Yahoo widgets here.   

and the Mac version here:

This widget works with Windows XP SP3, it has been tested on Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS/X and it should work on these with no problems whatsoever. It has no specific Windows functionality and should work for Mac OS/X 10 too as long as the Yahoo Widget runtime engine is loaded.

The full instructions can be found here:

The basic widget is donationware - please send £5/$7.50, this goes towards beer, donate by paypal here:

I am sorry that this widget does not run on Linux, Yahoo never developed a desktop widget engine for Linux... A great pity.
