Website down
By , for WP 4.5.3

This Plugin have make a good Job but after the last update I could no longer access the site. Very sad I had to uninstall it

Used to be great. Does not work now. 403 Forbidden errors
By , for WP 4.5.3

The plug in now lists all links as 403 Forbidden errors. The links do work but they all display with a line through them and throw the 403 Forbidden error. I have left a support request along with several others who have the same problem and there is no response from the developer. Use at your own risk. I hope they fix it because it was a must have plugin for me in the past.

Should be part of the WP core

Great plugin. The only feature it's missing is a way to pick a user and have it generate a list of pages with broken links that belongs to that user.

Powerful

The quickest way of checking your broken links if you have any.

Very powerful and convenient... But broken
By , for WP 4.5.3

EDIT: after a few hours usage, I notice it breaks (v1.11.2). It simply stops working. I opened a ticket and will put my old review back if this is fixed. With the bug, it's unusable and I spent most of the day on this...

Perfect!
I have been running a large WP site for 5+ years and there are lots of broken or redirected links that have accumulated. This plugin makes the job of identifying, and more importantly, automatically fixing these broken links very easy.

I like the range of options: it's all there! How frequently you check, which post types you check. There even is a log (watch it as it can grow pretty big).

Truely a beautiful execution: I don't know how it could get better.

A power tip: install the Crontrol plugin to customise at what time this plugin runs. I set it, after the initial parsing, to run at 2 AM.

AWESOME!

Causes server load spike and gives faulty information
By ,

I could only run this plugin for an hour at a time because it would drive the server load up from 2 to 20 in a heartbeat (not good!) and after I fixed hundreds of links, I ran it again and it began to point out broken links that weren't even in the content...I wasted hours using this questionable piece of junk. Don't waste your time.

Good Enough

Sometimes it even show those links broken which actually are not broken. Although it is great help.

Unverichtbares Link-Checker-PlugIn
By ,

Dieses PlugIn ist schon fast unverzichtbar, wenn man/n nicht laufend sämtliche Links von Hand prüfen möchte. Ohne diese Funktion hätte ich vermutlich zahlreiche dead-links auf meinen vielen WordPress-Blogs. Danke an Vladimir.
