Very good this plugin, perfect as proposed.
The support is even better, considering that in 10 hours the author of the plugin one answered my question.

Super easy. When I turned it on, it quickly listed 20 broken links, most of them on an old link page. It also automatically crossed out the broken links out on the page, so visitors can see which links are defunct and which are fine.

It then gave some handy options for what to do about each link in its easy, intuitive admin panel, hereunder the option to just dismiss broken links I do not intend to do anything about. It has bulk-action options.

Brilliant little plugin that does precisely what it says and more!

Works well

multiple email addresses to receive notifications

Can I add multiple emails separated by commas to receive notifications? I tried adding 3 people, but the emails get removed upon saving.

I have installed this plugin on two sites and so far it's been doing it's job perfectly. It's promotion and donate links are discrete and not in the way. A real time saver since I don't have to go through links manually.

Planning to donate because "it just works".

I've been using this on a couple of websites for years, with no problems.

É bom mas...

Sempre que uso ele, meu site sai do ar, quando volta as vezes fica muito lento. Ele também não tem muito compatibilidade com cloudflare.

You need to turn it off

If you want your site up and avoid this message:

"connection Lost. Saving has been disabled until reconnected. We're backing up this post in your browser, just in case"

Make sure to turn it off because it make conflicts with the deskboard, inside WP. I made me crazy until I finally discovered the issue!

It provides a nice report of your links.
I feel a little nervous about it, as I'm not quite sure how it works. It appears to make a set of tables within your database named "wp_blc_links" (blc_ prefix) and then it fills them up with links that appear in your site. That's great, but if it is running all the time adding information to the database and checking links, then it might be a performance drag. So I'm just running it on occasion, then disabling the plugin until the next time I need it.
