Last version works OK for me, older ones didn't
By , for WP 3.8.1

The plugin makes all my admin pages go blank as soon as it is activated, and the only solution I've found so far is to manually delete it (using FTP). Also, there is apparently no support in the forum.

I have the feeling that the plugin (probably) places too much stress on the server, at least in my particular case.


I want to be fair and correct my previous comment:

After my bad previous experience I decided to give it another try, and installed the last version (1.9.2). This version works correctly in my site - or, at least, does not give me the problems that a previous one did, and that I mentioned in my other message.

I used Xenu's for this work. Now I can edit the link directly and I received a email automatically. Good Work!

Very useful plugin. Works perfectly.

I've used this plugin on several of my sites and it works great.

One of the most useful plugins around!


It wrongly finds lots of links which are working just fine
By ,

I have used this plugin for years and it has always worked great. However in the last few weeks this plugin finds hundreds of supposedly broken links which are working just fine. The message is always the same 503 error. Anyone know what is causing that? I hope it's just a temporary glitch that will be fixed soon.

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."
