Broken Link Checker
[resolved] Doesn't seem to work on multi site installation (2 posts)

    Hi, I've installed your plugin on my set up, a multisite installation. It works on the primary site, but does not install on a secondary site. It gives a pink banner across the top of the second site saying: "Broken Link Checker installation failed. Try deactivating and then reactivating the plugin. Installation log follows :"
    There is no installation log data.
    Any ideas? I thought I had it working on a multi site when I was first playing with multisite about six months ago.

    I was the cause of the malfunction. I remembered that in my efforts to "harden" my wordpress install I'd added this to my .htaccess:

    RewriteRule ^wp-admin/includes/ - [F,L]
    RewriteRule !^wp-includes/ - [S=3]
    RewriteRule ^wp-includes/js/tinymce/langs/.+\.php - [F,L]
    RewriteRule ^wp-includes/theme-compat/ - [F,L]

    One of those lines was the culprit I'm sure, as once I removed them the plugin worked.
    Thanks for a great plugin.
