Bug 1: Broken link checker is one of the most commonly used plugins but certain queries, in particular checking images on my site, are blocked with a 403 error (see below) I did not turn on hotlinking of images.
I’m using BPS 47.8 and WP 3.5.1
Bug 2: I’m also having the same problem this guy is having with the facebook block, that is still unsolved:
Bug 3: In the new line DirectoryIndex index.php index.html /index.php
it took a while but it looks like “/index.php” was really messing up my installation where I have enabled apache directory listing on certain directories. Specifically, it was causing a 403 error but commenting out that line fixed the problem. Now anytime this plugin is updated I will have to comment out that line again.
Thank you very much for your efforts!
