Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » Disallowed Plugin by WPEngine

  • I was apprehensive about downloading this plugin but others were singing its praises so I went ahead. I’m on the very latest version of WordPress 4.8.1 and Genesis. I used the tool to find about 80 broken links on my site. I quickly fixed them, which was great.

    Then, my host, WPEngine, notified me that this plugin is disallowed because it causes slowing of my site and other issues. I’ve deleted it.

    One more thing: I ran a broken link check on my site prior to adding the plugin and it only caught about 60% of the broken links. I ran it again just now and there are still 55 links still broken. Now I have to go in and correct what the plugin missed.
