Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » Link URLs are cut off. Must Hover each item in list 1 by 1 to see the url.

  • SherylHohman


    Not useful to me. It’s too frustrating to see the urls of the broken images/links.

    Since every item must be hovered over, the “list” is effectively NOT a LIST at all!

    Also, there is no way to generate a text list.
    You can try the option which writes the debug info to a log file, but there is no reasonable way to filter out which lines to delete, or which lines to keep, even via regex, in order to wind up with a readable list of links that need tending to!!

    While it might be useful to many, I could garner no sense of the state of my website’s image urls (I’m trying to clean out old generated thumbnails, and also update links to use newly generated thumbnail sizes) from the info this plugin returned to me.

    I did NOT TEST actions, such as updating links, or the like so I cannot attest whether the reported functionality WORKS. Hence 3***.
    I ASSUME it essentially works.
    But the UI, and info returned did work for my particular needs.

    Your mileage may vary ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi @sherylhohman,

    Sorry to hear you didn’t have the best experience with the plugin, I wanted to mention that WPMU DEV team has taken over plugin support and maintenance of the plugin and we would love to hear your further thoughts about the usability.

    Since every item must be hovered over, the โ€œlistโ€ is effectively NOT a LIST at all!

    If you don’t mind, could you elaborate this part a bit more?
    Broken link list does indeed require hovering on the element to see available options but there’s also a bulk option so you can apply same action on all selected files.

    If I understand correctly you were looking for an option to download a clean list as a txt or csv file that includes all of the broken links, is that correct?
