Every site needs this
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have several WordPress sites including one large one and run a tight ship as far as links go, but was still surprised with how many broken ones this found. It's now on my essential plugins list.

Excellent link checker with bulk update
By , for WP 3.5.1

Does what it says on the tin. Very useful for moving a blog from one place to another because of the bulk replace feature.

Used to work - lost my rating
By , for WP 3.5.1

Broken Link Checker used to work great then... I updated it and so much for checking for broken links. I followed all the suggestions listed here in the help forum but still cannot use the plugin. Oh well...

If I could give this POS a 0, I would!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Just spent 3 hours trying to undo the massive damage this POS caused my site content.

No plugin, ever, should automatically change links/text/content on a site without express permission for every change.

Pretty much any external site link have been silently changed to the default media path for the site.

Broken Link Checker is in itself BROKEN!! stay away.
By , for WP 3.5

Detected over 200 broken 404 not found images. I clicked on their links and they still open, and are actively used in the posts. So i do not know the function of this plugin.

WILL CRASH YOUR SERVER
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin will overwhelm your server with HTTP requests, bringing it to a complete standstill.

Major platforms like WPengine, in fact, ban this plugin for this very reason: http://support.wpengine.com/disallowed-plugins/

STAY AWAY!
