Broken Link Checker

Broken Link Checker

Categories

  1. Sometimes, in the process of remove the broken link, it is necessary to keep the information of the old URL for research consistency. The relevance of some pages for researchers of any kind, depends to keep this reference (URL). It`s a way to inform them that, even besides the link is not available anymore, I will know that the exactly URL was available in that page once. For example, look to this sentence:

    <p>The astronomer Carl Sagan <a href="http://example.com/speach.html">said once</a> that the probability of us, human beings, being alone in the universe is near "4”.</p>

    I`m sugesting that…

  2. ...rather than applying to ALL broken links. What I'd really like to do is keep certain broken links, apply a css class, and remove those links from future broken link reports. Thanks!

  3. Please consider the broken link checker to work with wordpress-mu (mulitsites). I use wordpress mu and when I install broken link checker, it only works for the mainsite. When I run the plugin with my wordpress mu, it just checks the mainsite again.

  5. Some of the picture/video sharing sites block IPs if there are many requests in short amount of time. So the BLC returns broken links even if they are not broken. This is a problem on bigger blogs and on shared hosts where multiple people share one IP. A box where we could input multiple proxy servers to use would be helpful to solve this problem.

  8. I love WordPress, but why isn't this functionality in the core ?
    In the past I made html with Dreamweaver. I absolutely don't want to return to those days, but there were very basic functions in Dreamweaver that I used daily, which are still missing in WordPress

  9. Many agree that applying TITLE tags to links is good SEO practice, and certainly good usability. It would be EASY to add a list of links missing their TITLE attribute and allow it to be added.

    I suggest instead of creating a special title editor, you have a universal link editor that opens up, so that if, when correcting a broken link you notice it needs work on the title it can all be done in one place.

  11. Sounds quite simple, would really like to be able to 'sort by' Status Link, Text, and Source. Not JUST by URL, thanks.

  12. 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?

  14. In http.php file (modules/checker - directory) is a useragent set. Please set it to a string that could be identified by statcounters. Seomthing like "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; BLC/Broken Link Checker; http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/broken-link-checker/)".

    The reason is very simple. I just wondering why my server crawles my site and identifies itself as IE7 on WinXP. First I thought I got hacked. It takes a time to find this in BLC.

    This change is a minor in http.php in two lines - 142 and 345 - but it will prevent confusing the admin :-)

    Cheers

  16. In addition to broken links, a good value add would be to also find dummy links that are put as placeholders while a site in under development.

  18. You should recognize short URLs from services such as bit.ly, and categorize these differently. I want to keep track of these, but they need to be handled differently from other redirects, as the author will likely want to keep them around permanently do to the preference for sharing them over their long ugly expanded forms, but will want to be notified if the redirect breaks.
