doesn't work with multisite
By , for WP 3.8.1

the plugin doesn't work with multisite and the author doesn't seem to want to fix this.

Awesome plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Great plugin!
Can be easily used in a heavy site with thousands of posts and links. Most plugins don't work well on those environments.

Resourse hungry

tried to install it few times, but id brings site down eating on all resources. Completely useless

AMAZING plugin!

Couldn't be happier! Notifies me when something's wrong, and I don't have to check to make sure it's working!

The Page Template is Invalid Erros
By , for WP 3.8.1

Plugin used to work great.

I don't think I used it much in the short time we were on 3.8, but now on 3.8.1 it's refusing to take actions on links.

Bulk processing actually says they've been changed but does not change them. Refreshing the page shows them still there.

Individually attempting to unlink or alter them gives "The plugin failed to remove the link. The following error(s) occurred: The page template is invalid."

Indispensable maintenance plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

I install this plugin on every site I create. It saves time and makes for a better user experience as well as SEO.

Good plugin, but fails on Latvian language
By , for WP 3.8.1

False positives on ā, ņ, ū etc. characters in the links.

Doesn't work. Broken links are never flagged.

Used to work. Now it doesn't. Broken links are not flagged.

Works very reliably
By , for WP 3.8

I have been using this plugin for a WP blog that has many links to outside sites. I am extremely happy with the way it works. I don't see any slowdowns, I don't have any site problems, as some other people have talked about.

It does mark links in articles automatically, showing a strike-through. For my situation, I'm totally satisfied with how that works.

Great plugin!
