Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » Show target of rediret in list

  • Resolved dragon013



    I do have a bunch of redirects in the overview which I have to check each manually by clicking on “details” and checking to where the user is redirected before accepting the redirect.

    Is there a chance to show the url to which it redirects directly in the list a a column ? That would make correcting urls a lot easier. Is there an option for that, maybe, which I missed ?

    Thanks for any hint!

    Hi @dragon013

    I hope you are doing well.

    I am afraid it is not possible, to see all redirects you would need to expand the details and the Broken link checker will only render the URL that is includes on the website, but you can enable the option to fix the redirect using WordPress > Settings > Link Checker > Advanced > Check the “Fix Redirect” option, then you will see a new option in Tools > Broken Link > Bulk Action.

    thanks for yur reply. Bulk Action is already enabled, but actually not an option because accepting all redirect without checking them before could lead to linking to suspicious websites. e.g. old url: bestwebsite.tld redirects to somespamwebsite.tld

    Most auf redirects are from http to https to the same domain. To see that a column with the new url would be helpful. Since there is the information about it already in details under “Location”…

    ….I thought it should be technically possible to parse this and put it in an extra column. Too bad that this it not possible.

    Thanks for looking into it, though!

    Hi @dragon013

    Thanks for your reply.

    As the Broken Link Checker plugin is getting improved, we’d recommend to wait for the next release and then verify if the new user interface provides the expected information. Of course feedback and suggestions are always considered by the team. Currently there is not a estimated time of completion for the new release, but you can check the changes deployed in new versions to gather more info.

    Kind regards
