Quick Question re: "Link Text" (3 posts)

    What is the "link text" column for exactly? Sorry if that's a dumb question.

    On one link it says "image" on another it says "(none)".

    Thanks in advance.

    It's for the anchor text of the link. For example, if you have a link "Click here" that points to Google, then "Click here" will be displayed as the link text.

    In addition to links, the plugin can also check images (you can enable/disable this in Settings -> Link Checker). Since the concept of link text doesn't really apply to an image, it displays the text "Image" instead.

    As for "(none)", that shows up for links that have no anchor text. For example, if you've got an image link - e.g. a thumbnail that links to the full-view version - the plugin will display "(none)" in the link text column.
