How can I improve Broken Link Checker?

Broken link when 404 by Self hosted images

I've tested it a few times and I think it's not included yet. I use WP 3.0.1 with the Suffusion Theme and when I deleted an image that is included in a page or post it won't show up in the broken list.

This probably is because it redirects to a 404 page not found. But I would really like to see it come up in my broken list. Is this possible?

        If I understand this correctly I'm having a similar issue. I'm using Permlinks like this http://mysite.com/page/ and want the Broken Link Checker to detect any broken links to that page if the permlink were to change. I tried this and it reports the link as status 200 OK even though I have changed the permlink name. When I use http://web-sniffer.net/ it reports the same link as status 404 Not Found. I feel this is how it should work, no?

        i was writing an idea but i think it's the same like that.

        My problem is that i have a lot of images from tinypic.com and they deleted a lot of images from theirs servers without any warming.

        For exemple: http://i44.tinypic.com/10egakx.jpg

        it will be good to get support of this.

        Thanks

        Thank you for this nice plugin!

        It would be fine if Broken Link Checker could detect all kind of links which give back a 404.

        Excuse me for my bad English.
