AMAZING plugin!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Couldn't be happier! Notifies me when something's wrong, and I don't have to check to make sure it's working!

The Page Template is Invalid Erros
By , for WP 3.8.1

Plugin used to work great.

I don't think I used it much in the short time we were on 3.8, but now on 3.8.1 it's refusing to take actions on links.

Bulk processing actually says they've been changed but does not change them. Refreshing the page shows them still there.

Individually attempting to unlink or alter them gives "The plugin failed to remove the link. The following error(s) occurred: The page template is invalid."

Works very reliably
By , for WP 3.8

I have been using this plugin for a WP blog that has many links to outside sites. I am extremely happy with the way it works. I don't see any slowdowns, I don't have any site problems, as some other people have talked about.

It does mark links in articles automatically, showing a strike-through. For my situation, I'm totally satisfied with how that works.

Great plugin!

really handy
By , for WP 3.8

This tool works and keeps our web site from having tons of broken links, and makes fixing them pretty easy. No significant problems with it.

JavaScript doesn't work
By , for WP 3.8

In each broken link, javascript doesn't work. e.g,) URL Edit, Dismiss, etc. So I did all of my work with combo box except 'URL Edit'. Because 'URL Edit' doesn't work too in combo box.

Totally disabled/broke our wp-admin.

It was not accessible until we renamed the plugins folder & then logged in & reactived each plugin required.
