Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » Keeps Showing Broken Link for Link that is NOT broken

    I have a shorturl on my website, specifically shorturl.at/psQRU

    Your software keeps saying it is broken, but it is not. Is there a way to stop it from checking this specific link?

    Thank you.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @ma3ry

    Sorry to hear you are having this issue.

    I checked the link and it worked just fine on my website.

    Can you please click on details and send a screenshot so we can take a look?

    Once I tell the plugin that the links are not broken, they will appear fixed until it happens again.

    Currently the plugin is showing three 403 forbidden links which all work. I will not fix them so you can see. They are at https://bestwebsites.ca/promoting/ and https://bestwebsites.ca/search-engine-optimization/

    So although these are different re the code of 403, they are behaving the same as the original.

    Hello @ma3ry ,

    From your screenshot, I can see it throws 403 for youtube videos links. Can you check if you added your YouTube API key in General settings of the plugin and in the Protocols & APIs tab Youtube API is selected?

    kind regards,
    Kasia

    Thank you. I did not have my YouTube Embed plugin installed on this website. I’m not sure if this is what is needed but I have paid for multiple licenses so I installed it with the API key.

    The broken links appear the same as in the screenshot.

    Can you please give me more detailed advice as to how to proceed to fix this.

    Please note, this morning I received notification of broken links on another site, none of which are broken.

    Hi @ma3ry

    For the reported link, the status is 503 Service Unavailable, it is possible when the plugin checked the links the website was having an update or not available.

    You can wait for the next cronjob or force a recheck on Settings > Advanced > Force Check.

    https://monosnap.com/file/0obdFriR1eyKuB9wniRr7AwIfTqy7e

    About the API key from youtube, it seems there is a misunderstood, my Friend asked about the key configuration from Broken link checker, not the youtube plugin.

    Can you please try to configure your youtube API key on the Broken link checker plugin? https://monosnap.com/file/vkA1fANRIS7ma91ZQIeIDGX7HJgo9B

    Once done, re-check the links using the option or wait for the next cron.

    Let us know the result you got.
    Best Regards
