Broken Link Checker
comment created on Edit Url (3 posts)

    I am a new user to the plugin and have noticed that when I edit a URL to fix it, I get an email of a comment that was created which is just the text of the post. Is this expected? Anyway to turn it off?

    Thanks!

    That's very unusual and definitely not something that I'd expect to happen. This plugin should never create new comments, or send any emails except for the broken link notifications.

    Could one of your other plugins be causing this?

    Thanks for the reply. I started poking around a bit more and now actually think that what may be happening is that it is causing a "Trackback" to be sent. I am surprised that WordPress would send it to myself, but I just migrated off of blogspot, so maybe it thinks the "new" domain is posting back to "old" blogspot and is confused. Anyway, I don't think it is a LinkChecker issue.

    Also, I guess I do not need to worry about it since it should not happen going forward.

    Thanks again!
