marking good links as broken

By Dustin W. Stout (dustinwstout) on August 16, 2022

The plugin was great for the longest time. Over the past year it seems like the majority of links it's marking as "broken" are actually not broken at all. If you visit the link, it's perfectly fine. Yet rechecking results in it being flagged as broken nonetheless. So while it "works" in finding actual broken links, the plugin is creating a lot of extra work because we have to sit and verify each link it finds, and mark dozens of legitimate links as unbroken.

Totally Satisfied

Broken Link Checker works as promised and is easy to use.

Its okay if you dont use amazon affiliate links

By silentwisher on July 20, 2022

The plug-in works great most of the time. In fact, I install it on almost all of my websites and client websites. However, I cannot give it 5 stars, in fact, I take away two because there is no way to filter out specific links so they do not get detected as broken. Specifically, I'm referring to Amazon affiliate links to products on The amount of times every single day multiple times a day that I have to check off that these links are not broken is very annoying.

Nothing bad to report. It even tells you the text of the link, so you can quickly check the part of the page that got the issue. But you can also fix the link directly from the plugin page. Very useful plugin.

Works well, but not ideal

By yeoric on June 26, 2022

The link checker finds broken links and has many settings to exclude or mark false-positives like blocked access (HTTP error 403/503). It does correctly check and resolve internal links (#anchorname) which is more than most checkers do. One caveat (a big problem for me, but probably not for most other sites): The checker does not run from the environment I am logged in as, but seems to try to connect as an anonymous user. This means that posts/pages that require a login do show up as "404"s, i.e. broken links.
