Link Checker v0.93

Posted June 3, 2009, in Utilities.


This plugin assists authors, editors and administrators in making sure that all of the links on their blog are still valid and therefore useful to their readers. It works by surfacing an additional list action called "Validate Links" in your Manage Entries table listing. Just select the entries you want to scan and evaluate, hit "Go" and this plugin will produce a simple report about all of the URLs found in the post.

The plugin will scan for all URLs including:

  • valid references to embedded images
  • outbound links
  • frame references
