Takes me so long to install...
By , for WP 3.6.1

I just installed the plugin...although I have known the plugin a few months back. Then, I forgot and simply go through manual and tedious way of checking broken links within my websites. Now, this looks automatic and I'll just simply check from time to time if there are broken links detected to double check.

Great job on this one... keep it up!

...and Thank You!

Great - keeps getting better

Been using this for a long time, had to post a review after seeing the new features in version 1.9!

Great plugin. Sniffs out links that are broken very reliably!

The best - indispensable!
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is one of the best plugins I have ever used, and I put it on all my sites. It is hard enough to build quality content with link variation, however when those links disappear it is worse than having no link at all if your visitors are sent to a deadend!!

Here is an example of one of my sites where I have used this plugin extensively. With art being an ever changing industry, it was important for a site on chalk ink that the links are always valid and the site is operating properly. Highly recommended A+++

Found broken links on my site dating back to 2005 ... easy fix/update

Thanks for making my web site maintenance easier ...

BEWARE can corrupt plugins and cause them to be removed somehow
By ,

Upon installation (via FTP) returned

The plugin does not have a valid header

and all my existing plugins, gave messages such as:

The plugin apocalypse-meow/index.php has been deactivated due to an error: Plugin file does not exist.

Staggeringly useful.

Having wasted many hours (on a previous non-WP site) manually updating links, I almost cried when I found this plugin. It works really, really well, too, immediately notifying you of broken internal or external links and, better yet, letting you fix those links directly from the plugin menu. It takes what had always been a time-consuming and frustrating chore and makes it a quick, simple job.

If you have a site with any number of either internal or external links, this plugin is a must.

Great For Large Sites

We love using the Broken Link Checker tool on the Mountain Weekly News. With over 2,500 pages and links on most pages this checker is a god send tool!

Stay up to date on your links. Especially helpful for product review sites where inventory may not be available from time to time. No need to send someone to a 404 page anymore.

Effective proactive link checking
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin is fairly simple to use, and does just what it advertises. It notifies me as soon as a link (whether internal or external) is broken, and lets me quickly fix the link before my visitors find it. It is one of my most actively used plugins, and makes me feel that I'm caring well for the cleanliness of my site!

Huge help for huge sites

I'm finishing up the launch of a re-design, with literally thousands of inline and navigation links to confirm. Between that and, looking forward, having many authors -- who won't necessarily catch their own link errors -- Broken Link Checker is pretty indispensable.

I love this plugin. It should be part of the core ASAP! So much easier than updating links manually... a real time saver. Many thanks!
