Can Siteimprove scan a site built on our website framework?

Modified on: Mon, 30 May, 2022 at 12:22 PM

A website can be built using many different technologies, common technologies used by CMS systems are frameworks such as React, Angular, Vue.JS, and PHP.

The framework used to generate a webpage will rarely affect our ability to scan it. This is because we examine the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as seen by the browser regardless of the technologies used to create the website.

We crawl the rendered pages, not the source code and can generally check websites built with any CMS. For example, Drupal, Sitecore, headless, a plugin in a browser, etc. As long as the resulting pages consist of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, the technology used for their creation does not affect our ability to scan and test sites.

Saying that, there are situations when it is not possible to crawl a site or section of a site. For example, web applications with dynamic states on the same URL.
