Support » Fixing WordPress » I keep receiving "broken link" notices

  • For the past day, every few hours I’ve been notified that I have a “broken link”, but when I click on the link and the source, it works fine. Is this something I should ignore? If I am able to click on said link, does that mean everyone else can too? What should I do? I’ve never had this issue before. I don’t know if my wordpress is going haywire or what, because I’ve been having different issues today.

  • What notification? Google, Broken Link Checker … or some other?

    Sorry, from Broken Link Checker in my dashboard.

    Ok.
    Is your link or to external site? 404 error?
    Can you give us this url?

    When I click the link, it works fine. My link is not to an external site, just a link on one page to another page.

    This is the link

    There is no error when I click the link, but the broken link checker status says “503 Service Unavailable”

    Also this:

    503 Service Unavailable
    The server is currently unavailable (because it is overloaded or down for maintenance)

    Your site need optimisation.
    Use cache plugin…
    Check YSlow to find problems.

    Thank you! I do have a cache plugin. Should I “empty” it? Also, what would I do with YSLOW? I’m a newbie at this.
