Installed BLC yesterday and really like it so far. I have 3,000 posts and 6,000 comments. BLC found about 500 broken links in comments alone. 8 year old blog, bound to happen.
I am moving web hosts this week. What happens if/when I remove the plugin or turn it on at the new host? Will the broken links re-appear? By that I mean, does BLC edit the posts table and remove the link permanently or does it apply CSS styling or CSS to hide the link via the plugin. I am hoping it is a one-time deal so I can run BLC, make edits, then deactivate it if I have to. Also, I don’t want to run BLC on old host and then have to do it again on new host.
Feature request: Many of my broken links in posts point to Yahoo News articles. Probably a few hundred of those are broken. I wish there was a way to have BLC search Yahoo for the correct link and update the link in the posts table. this is a huge problem with older content, too bad links are not self-aware.
