          One of the links on my site - http://莎士比亚.org/ - is reported as ????.org and therefore shows as broken.

          • Security scan on links

            My security scanner spotted that a database backup file had some suspect links. When I investigated it was in the wsswp_blc_links table in the "final_url" column.

            Perhaps broken link checker could incorporate a URL malware check too?

            • I think there is a mistake ...

              If you have a linke http:///xxx.xx the Link checker means all is ok. The third "/" is wrong.

              Thank you for help
              Mike

                • Include a feature where the links are highlighted in the page where the links are broken!

                  I find it confusing when I have a broken link and there are several links on the page. I need to check each one to find out which one is being picked up. If you could highlight the broken link in the page that would be awesome.

                      • Check Post and Page slugs

                        Sometimes the links to the posts and pages themselves break. Slugs are not always sanitized. This happens too often on one of my sites where curly apostrophes are not deleted from the slug. I would love for this plugin to handle this problem. Thanks!

                        • Export CVS and Import CVS

                          I have a site with hundreds of broken links

                          that there would be very effective way to export and import a CVS file

                          in this file broken links and new links

                          in my case the time it takes for the plugin to add one to one is long

                          I have located the correct links and a lot of cases is just changing a few characters to correct this I could do in a CSV file and finish in a day

                          regards

                                    • Ignore errors caused by linking to a "Private" page on the same site.

                                      My site is www.foo.com, I create a link from the homepage to www.foo.com/members/

                                      This site is set as "Private" in WordPress, and using the Page Restrict plugin I can allow only logged in users to access it.

                                      The link to the page gives a 404 error, even though (if you're logged in) it works.

                                      Is there a workaround or fix?
