    Hello!
    In my contact section I’ve got a link like:
    https://wa.me/+XXXXXXXXX

    I’ve checked the link personaly with the pc and with the phone and both work, but I’m still getting the error on the:
    mysite/wp-admin/tools.php?page=view-broken-links

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    What are the real URLs?

    Well… That looks like a whats APP link to me and whatever you have checking your links on your WordPress site is expecting a 200 type response from a web server. Instead, the request is trying to open an APP. If the APP isn’t there (it can’t be) then BLC sees a broken link.

    If you’re running the Broken Link Checker plugin you can dismiss that ‘broken link’ and BLC might ignore it from then on. Else you can exclude the link since you know it is okay.

    Always consider things from a HTML perspective and you’ll probably save yourself a lot of worry over nothing.

    If you’re not running BLC then you’ll need to chat with the plugin provider that is giving you this broken link.

    Thanks for your replies!!
