How can I improve Broken Link Checker?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. For some reason I had to delete the plugin on last update as it crashed my site. I tried to install it again but I get a failed message.

    • Thanks for the awesome tool! Keep kicking ass!

      Just a small notification got me back on my feet after permalinks warped my site's reality.

        • Option to put post/page into "private" or "draft" status until link corrected

          If the user cannot get online immediately to correct the link or dismiss it as unbroken, have an option to set the post/page as "private" or "draft" until later.

          • Create New Dashboard window with RSS Data - native import: Facebook,Google,E-mail,SMS Text,

            I like dashboards pro, but I would love for it to be more. Like the ability to turn it into an ultimate DASH - like a "MISSION CONTROL CENTER"
            where you are watching all the data you need to see from one location.
            If I need to monitor clients like a CRM, I could use it for that. Or if I needed to import Video feeds, I could use it for that. What if I just wanted to monitor all my site data in one place I could use it for that.

            With so many options... it would be important…

              • Add a config option to choose snoopy instead of cURL

                cURL is active on my host but curl_exec is not available because it's specified in the disable_functions php.ini directive. If I remove the code that chooses cURL over snoopy, everything works.

                  • Allow me to exclude timeout links

                    I haven't figured out why internal image links are showing up as broken because of Timeouts when the checker is running, but I don't want them all marked as broken.

                    This is somewhat similar to the request to apply css selectively to broken links.

                    • Compatabile with Gantry Framework

                      I don't know if it's just me... But I installed a new Wordpress to test it with the Gantry Framework. It looks like the two plugins use the same class/functions and are conflicting with each other as I get a redeclare PHP error for add_screen_meta_link().

                      • Add Check All To Bulk Actions Menu

                        This plugin rocks! I added to one of my blogs at http://a11news.com that has roughly 18k comments. The number of broken links in old comments was staggering, 600+. Drop down menu Check All box would be a big help.

                          • any suggestions further on how to get rid of the entire dead link incl. link text please

                            Hi, please have a look at one of my (test) posts at
                            http://artistrudolfmegert.artbabyart.net/directory/204/useroo-listing-total-1
                            and you see how absolutely ridiculous this looks, using the only option to deal with dead links or redirects in bulk, the "unlink" option leaves the ton of dead skeletons behind (the link text, in this case all URL's that simply no longer link).
                            Please create an option to get rid of this final trash too, something like
                            "Remove complete Link" as a bulk tool option, many thanks for your effort in advance.

                                      The Broken Link Checker plugin is extremely useful but it is not working correctly installed in a multisite wordpress. It displays broken links that are actually working. Maybe it is because of the different used domains inside!?

                                      • Outstanding Plugin! Link (source) in New Tab?

                                        Outstanding Plugin! I've looked at the setup page and there doesn't seem to be (I may have missed it) a way to configure so that the reviewed page (source) opens in a new tab. In the situation I'm using this (migrating from a different platform blog/web-site) this would be very useful (hundreds of pages). I know I can force that by holding the control key ... but every few pages I forget and lose the "broken links" home page.

                                        • Issue: broken YouTube video are not identified animore from the plug in. 05/09/2015

                                          Please FIX.
                                          Before this was working now many broken YouTube video removed.. are not flagged as broken from the plug in.
                                          See https://wordpress.org/support/topic/broken-link-checker-not-showing-broken-youtube-links?replies=2

                                          It seems no reply from staff in the support topic about this issue. I hope can be fixed. Thanks!
