    When I run the “Check Broken Links” two links are found for to be broken (Linkedin and Yelp, they are listed as unreachable) yet the links are fine when I click on them?? Is there something I am doing wrong. My links are under “”.

    The problem is that these sites have mechanisms in place to prevent other web sites from ‘scraping’ their content. They don’t want automated systems to crawl though their sites and grab all of the content.

    I have been able to get yelp to show as valid by making some changes to my code, but LinkedIn still shows as unreachable.

    The fix to make yelp appear as valid is in a new version I just released.

    I also wanted to say, you should consider changing your switching method from HTML GET to AJAX, because as it currently stands, when you click on Page 2 for any of the categories, all of them switch to the second page, including the last category that does not have a second page of links. Moving to AJAX, only the selected category would display its second page.

    Please consider donating to support this plugin’s development.
