Broken Links Plugin needs 'Greylist' (or Whitelist + Publish Status + Mark Read) (3 posts)

    In the Broken Links admin page,
    I'd like to be able to select whether to display all posts, or only published posts. I've got lots of old drafts full of bad links - I may deal with those later, but now they just clutter my broken links admin pages.

    Some broken links are links to the sources of copied article stubs, but I want to keep the link there so it is acknowledged that I linked to the original article. http://feeds.feedburner.com/~a/ScientificAmerican-Mind?a=OPDJgH

    Also:
    In the Broken Links admin page, some links are displayed which should not display
    - skype:Sampleskypename?call
    works, but is not recognized by Broken Links plugin

    Also:
    Broken Links appears to assume my blog is in my top directory, so it thinks some of my relative-referenced images (and links, I suppose) are broken, when they display properly within the blog. For example, in my post I have an image src="wp-content/uploads/[...]". The post displays
    imagiscape.ca/blog/wp-content/uploads/stars_shows/home_imp_buddy.gif
    but Broken Links looks for
    imagiscape.ca/wp-content/uploads/stars_shows/home_imp_buddy.gif
    (without /blog/).

    It is indeed very annoying that images display properly (if not in the standard uploads directory), but are seen as broken links.

    Would have been a fantastic plugin, but since all my images are on another server, this does not work for me...
