- New and modified entries are checked ASAP.
- Notifies you on the Dashboard if any problems are found.
- Lets you edit all instances of a specific link at once.
- Gives you a list of all links ever posted on your site, with the ability to search and filter it.
- Lets you apply custom CSS styles to broken and removed links.
- Highly configurable.
Example on our site
Here is a screenshot of the broken link dashboard.
As you can see we have a link still pointing over to what used to be my personal blog. That subdomain no longer exists and so I will hit the “Edit URL” link and fix the link to point at where the article now resides.
The plugin is free and great for cleaning up your broken links!
