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.

Severe performance issues
By , for WP 3.6.1

Good idea, but poorly implemented. It hits the CPU hard, makes the site very slow, which makes this plugin basically unusable.

Security hole for our site
By ,

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.

broken link checker is broken
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have used this plugin on many sites. Lately, it gives many false brokens: perfectly correct sites are broken. Such as google drive.

I rate a 2nd star for all the joy of the past.

Running on WP 3.5.1 it does it's job but badly, reporting every single link I have to be broken.
Requires some updating before recommendation

Performance problems
By , for WP 3.5.1

Unfortunately this plugin always holds performance problems with other plugins. But basic idea is great. We've tested on several systems.

Slows down my entire site

It worked at first but after 12 minutes, it slows down my entire blog until to the point that my blog no longer loads. Have to delete to plugin to make my blog work again

É ótimo até que sobrecarrega o servidor da hospedagem
By , for WP 3.5

Assim que instalei ele começou a funcionar de forma brilhante, mas da mesma forma sobrecarregou os processos, a memória até que fez o site ficar down. Fiz 2 tentativas e mesmo desabilitando e modificando as opções ele continuou a trabalhar. Infelizmente só deu como solução desinstalar o plugin. :(
