    Hi @tooni

    Sorry to hear you are having this issue.

    The Broken Link checker will ping the URL and return the status that the service reply to it, I was able to replicate the 400 on this link and I pinged the developers to check why this is happening.

    In the meanwhile, I suggest bypassing the links from this website adding them to the exclusion list:
    https://monosnap.com/file/yEYLsmzn5DFaDBN300FOYkdH9XS7iz

    We will update once hearing back from the developer.
    Best Regards

    Hi @tooni

    Let me follow on this

    Our developer checked it and indeed the link is not broken but when we try to request, the service returns a 400 status:

    HTTP/1.1 303 See Other
    Date: Sun, 06 Jun 2021 17:47:33 GMT
    Server: Apache
    Set-Cookie: DRVB2-S=$xc/XLiTjqhyKer431GnEWo3IiM01bCqAZToi6W4kOeYKcWCFsaT; Path=/; Secure; HttpOnly; SameSite=None
    Content-Length: 123
    Location: /error_path/400.html?al_req_id=YL0KNZY0Bp@zlYkk44u-PwAAAKs
    Content-Type: text/html
    HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
    Date: Sun, 06 Jun 2021 17:47:33 GMT
    Server: Apache
    Cache-Control: no-cache
    Pragma: no-cache
    Connection: close
    Content-Type: text/html

    I am afraid you would need to mark it as no broken or use the exclusion option to bypass the specific site.

    Let us know the result you got.

    Thank you very much for your fast answer and investigations!
    Up to now I wasn’t aware of the existance of an exclusion list. 😉
    So I added the errornous website to this exclusion list and I’m rather sure this will help. I will let you know in some days…

    After waiting enough time I can confirm, that I had no more false broken links for the specific website. Thank you for your help.
    There is only one little disadvantage with this “solution”: If there is really a broken link, it will not be detected any more. However – that’s okay for me and I do not see this as a problem.

    Regards, Tooni
