This plugin will check your posts, comments and other content for broken links and missing images, and notify you if any are found.
Been using this for a long time, had to post a review after seeing the new features in version 1.9!
Great plugin. Sniffs out links that are broken very reliably!
This is one of the best plugins I have ever used, and I put it on all my sites. It is hard enough to build quality content with link variation, however when those links disappear it is worse than having no link at all if your visitors are sent to a deadend!!
Here is an example of one of my sites where I have used this plugin extensively. With art being an ever changing industry, it was important for a site on chalk ink that the links are always valid and the site is operating properly. Highly recommended A+++
Thanks for making my web site maintenance easier ...
Our site kept getting hacked, even after extensive cleanup. Our hosting company finally got involved and said that a malicious IP was "accessing a file in the broken link finder plugin."
I'm not saying this plugin was the security hole. But in our case it looks like it was more useful to the hackers than to us.
Upon installation (via FTP) returned
The plugin does not have a valid header
and all my existing plugins, gave messages such as:
The plugin apocalypse-meow/index.php has been deactivated due to an error: Plugin file does not exist.
Having wasted many hours (on a previous non-WP site) manually updating links, I almost cried when I found this plugin. It works really, really well, too, immediately notifying you of broken internal or external links and, better yet, letting you fix those links directly from the plugin menu. It takes what had always been a time-consuming and frustrating chore and makes it a quick, simple job.
If you have a site with any number of either internal or external links, this plugin is a must.
We love using the Broken Link Checker tool on the Mountain Weekly News. With over 2,500 pages and links on most pages this checker is a god send tool!
Stay up to date on your links. Especially helpful for product review sites where inventory may not be available from time to time. No need to send someone to a 404 page anymore.
This plugin is fairly simple to use, and does just what it advertises. It notifies me as soon as a link (whether internal or external) is broken, and lets me quickly fix the link before my visitors find it. It is one of my most actively used plugins, and makes me feel that I'm caring well for the cleanliness of my site!
Good plugin, but now get error 500 on all my site, I must rename the folder to go to my blog's admin page :-(
I'm finishing up the launch of a re-design, with literally thousands of inline and navigation links to confirm. Between that and, looking forward, having many authors -- who won't necessarily catch their own link errors -- Broken Link Checker is pretty indispensable.
