Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » Feature request: Show details for all instances when instance count > 1

  • Resolved apedog


    First off, thank you for maintaining this great plugin. The details pane is very informative and useful for debugging/tracking/modifying broken links.
    However when instance count > 1 the information presented is rather scarce. Non-existent actually. BLC only shows the page where the link was first encountered. There is no way (other than querying with phpMyAdmin) to find what other pages also reference the link.
    There is also no way to know what other context the link appears in. In many cases the Link Text is not the same on different pages/posts. So the the user might not want to change the Link Text on all instances of the link.

    1. Please show all Source pages where the broken link is present. Or allow an ‘expand’ option to access (title|edit|view etc.) the different pages where the link instance was found. Much like the tr 'link-details' expands. Additional rows could be toggled to show the other pages where the link instance exists.
    2. Please show the different Link Texts that accompany the links on the different pages. (or allow an ‘expand’ view to see other Link Text – in same row as mentioned above).

    I find BLC very useful and robust for most (single instance) use-cases. However when multiple instances are found, BLC is lacking. Going into phpMyAdmin and making queries and modifications in SQL rather defeats the purpose of the plugin.

    I really appreciate your kind words and feedback here @apedog šŸ™‚

    I’ve already shared these with our BLC team for further consideration. If there’s any development on this, we’ll keep you posted here.

    Thank you,
