    Hi

    thanks for this plugin, it saves me a lot of time checking manually !

    I've got a problem anyhow : the plugin checks as expected, there are 286 broken links found (out of 10000 ...) but when I try to access the list, I only get a blank page.

    Brocken links are properly stored in the database btw

    My configuration: WordPress 3.5.1 (same thing anyway on WP 3.5)

    Any thoughts ?

    tc, Olivier

    There's probably a PHP error on the page. If error display is turned off in server configuration then you'll just get a blank page whenever there's an error.

    Check your PHP error logs for recent error messages. If you don't know how to find the log or if logging is disabled, see this page:

    well, as expected there is a memory problem, found this in the debug log :

    [26-Jan-2013 10:12:54] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 239075328 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 79 bytes) in /wp path/wp-includes/cache.php on line 570

    more details abouts the links pool :

    233 liens cassés trouvés
    Aucune URL dans la file d'attente.
    Trouver 1980 unique URLs dans 10158 links.

    Is there any way to resolve this by limiting treated url at once ? I definitely can't raise the php memory_limit more than the current value (228 Mo)

    tc, Olivier

    Update : the problem was in fact related to non-link custom fields with space/accentued caracter values (or so I think) entered through the setting page for BLC to check into. Now that's been corrected, the plugin works as a charm, even if I have a heavy pack of links, as already stated :

    1555 broken links found
    0 pending URL
    Found 9596 unique URLs in 10093 links

    I particularly appreciate the useful filters which are automatically added to the standard ones (broken, redirected, suspended, all) just by saving a custom search through the BLC admin page

    So Janis, bravo for this wonderful tool which is one of the trickiest one I've ever seen since I'm using WP (7 or 8 years I think), I only regret you didn't do it earlier to save me so much time these last couple of years ;) Thanks to you, I'll be now able to check frequently my numerous links instead of the annual overwhelming / exhausting manual inspection I used to do before
