You are an excelent web developer and we all the WordPress.org bloggers are very thankful and would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for your excelent BROKEN LINK CHECKER PLUGIN which is very useful.

Since some weeks ago, I didn't know about this plugin and I had more of 130 broken links on my respectable personal blog (Google page rank 3). So, I have installed your BROKEN LINK CHECKER and I was very surprised !!! I've never thought that I could have so many broken links on my website ! With your plugin, I have finally fixed this technical problem and now I have ZERO BROKEN LINKS thanks to you ! I will give you FIVE STARS rating right now !

Excellent time saver

I'm a Test automation guy and just when I thought I'd have to script or find other means to validate links, this plugin came across to me. Excellent time saver. It works from within wordpress, navigates as a WP service and provides a view to either fix or ignore any link. Also caters delayed response which is excellent. Loved it.

Amazingly thorough

Before I moved to WordPress, I had thought about trying to write a script to unlink external links that were broken. This plugin does everything I wanted to do, and more, and it is much better than what I could create.

Page load time endless

It increases my page load time to endless. I had to disable it.

Worth getting!

Good plugin! I just tried this on a blog and am pleasantly suprised at how many dead links it found. Very cool. I like the fact that it let me "unlink them" instead of deleting the posts or just putting a line through the link.

Does exactly what it says that it does

Savvy web developers know that mitigating broken links is critical and I find this plug-in to be very useful for that purpose. Given that my WP site has posts that are several years old, this tool lets me know quickly whenever a link becomes broken and gives me the option to choose how to proceed.
