Broken Link Checker
Stopped working after update (2 posts)

    Database error : Unknown column 'dismissed' in 'where clause' shows up and cannot test links. I used to love this plugin, but I don't like having ones that don't work after an update.

    I followed all the suggestions from previous support posts and nothing fixes it. I'll just have to find another... I hope

    SOLVED:

    1. go to /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=link-checker-settings

    2. click onto Show debug info

    in mine it read:
    [ ] ALTER TABLE wp_blc_links ADD COLUMN dismissed tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'
    Database error : ALTER command denied to user '*******'@'localhost' for table 'wp_blc_links'
    (I erased the username)

    3. log into your MySQL manager

    4. add the ALTER privilege to that user, save

    5. /wp-admin/tools.php?page=view-broken-links

    :)
