Overview

tidyDOM includes a purpose-built an issue management solution to help your team work through remediation tasks easily and efficiently.

There are a few important concepts to understand:

Issues

Issues found on your site will always map to a specific WCAG 2.1 Success Criteria. You can think of an issue as a “class of problem”, for example an insufficient contrast ratio or missing descriptive text.

Instances

An instance is an individual ocurrance of an issue on your site. Issues will often have many instances across multiple pages of your site.

We use advanced pattern matching in an attempt to group like issues together. This grouping enables developers to better identify the source template for grouped instances instances, even if they occur on multiple pages of your site.
