Broken Link Checker


Broken Link Checker monitors and tests all internal links & external links on your site looking for broken links. It helps you fix bad links to improve SEO and user experience.


  • Monitors external links and internal links in your posts, pages, comments, the blogroll, and custom fields (optional).
  • Detects links that don’t work, missing images and redirects.
  • Notifies you either via the Dashboard or by email.
  • Makes broken links display differently in posts (optional).
  • Prevents search engines from following broken links (optional).
  • You can search and filter links by URL, anchor text and so on.
  • Links can be edited directly from the plugin’s page, without manually updating each post.
  • Altamente configurable.

Uso básico

Unha vez instalado, o plugin comezará a analizar as súas publicacións, marcadores ( AKA blogroll) e outro contido e buscará ligazóns. Dependendo do tamaño do seu sitio, pode tardar desde uns minutos ata unha hora ou máis. Cando se complete a análise, o plugin comezará a verificar cada ligazón para ver se funciona. Novamente, canto tempo leva isto depende do grande sexa o seu sitio e cantas ligazóns haxa. Pode monitorear o progreso e axustar varias opcións de verificación de ligazóns en Configuración -> Comprobador de ligazóns.

As ligazóns rotas, se se atopan, aparecerán nunha nova pestana do panel de administración de WP – Ferramentas -> Enlaces rotos. Tamén aparecerá unha notificación no widget “Broken Link Checker” no Panel de control. Para aforrar espazo de visualización, pode manter o widget pechado e configuralo para que se expanda automaticamente cando se detecten ligazóns problemáticas. As notificacións por correo electrónico deben habilitarse por separado (en Configuración -> Comprobador de ligazóns).

A pestana “Enlaces rotos” mostrará de forma predeterminada unha lista de ligazóns rotas que se detectaron ata o de agora. Con todo, pode usar as ligazóns nesa páxina para ver os redirecionamentos ou ver unha lista de todas as ligazóns, funcionen ou non, no seu lugar. Tamén pode crear novos filtros de ligazóns realizando unha procura e facendo clic no botón “Crear filtro personalizado”. Por exemplo, isto pódese usar para crear un filtro que só mostre ligazóns de comentarios.

Hai varias accións asociadas con cada ligazón. Aparecen cando move o punteiro sobre unha das ligazóns enumeradas na pestana mencionada anteriormente –

  • “Edit URL” lets you change the URL of that link. If the link is present in more than one place (e.g. both in a post and in the blogroll), all occurrences of that URL will be changed.
  • “Unlink” removes the link but leaves the link text intact.
  • “Non roto” permítelle marcar manualmente unha ligazón “rota” como funcionando. Isto é útil se sabe que se detectou incorrectamente como roto debido a un fallo da rede ou un erro. A ligazón marcada aínda se verificará periodicamente, pero o plugin non o considerará roto a menos que obteña un novo resultado.
  • “Dismiss” hides the link from the “Broken Links” and “Redirects” views. It will still be checked as normal and get the normal link styles (e.g. a strike-through effect for broken links), but won’t be reported again unless its status changes. Useful if you want to acknowledge a link as broken/redirected and just leave as it is.

Tamén pode facer clic no contido das columnas “Estado” ou “Texto da ligazón” para obter máis información sobre o estado de cada ligazón.

It took a while but it fixed most broken links. Not pushy, doesn't ask you to provide stuff, write reviews, update, upgrade, and other sorts of nonsense. A good plugin

Because we have a number of old sites, with numerous links in them, this has become an essential plugin for us! Other sites often update and don't provide redirects, and this plugin will warn you of that. If the site no longer exists, then it can even recommend a link for you, so you can link to an old version of the page.

Finds the broken links, though it trips over anything at Lets me edit them from the list of broken links. Lets me view the post, trash it or edit it from the same list. Works with URLs in custom fields.

Excellent plugin. It saves time on identifying and fixing broken links. I have thousands of links on my site. It would not be possible to maintain them without this plugin. On the other hand, sometimes they are not broken, but slow to load, but I have no complains in light of the fact that this plugin save me many hours of tedious drudgery identifying broken links. Fixing them is easy from the plugin. Sincere thanks to the developer.

  • Increased the default server load limit to 4.0 to prevent the plugin from idling endlessly on weakling servers.


  • Masquerade as IE 7 when using the Snoopy library to check links. Should prevent some false positives.

  • Initial support for performing some action on multiple links at once.
  • Added a “Delete sources” bulk action that lets you delete all posts (or blogroll entries) that contain any of the selected links. Doing this in WP 2.9 and up this will instead move the posts to the trash, not delete them permanently.

  • Fixed an unlocalized string on the “Broken Links” page


  • Engadiuse a tradución rusa.


  • Engadiuse a tradución en francés.

  • Let people use Enter and Esc as shortcuts for “Save URL” and “Cancel” (respectively) when editing a link.


  • Added a redirect detection workaround for users that have safe_mode or open_basedir enabled.

  • Be more careful when parsing safe_mode and open_basedir settings.


  • Also try the upload directory when looking for places where to put the lockfile.


  • Editing links with relative URLs via the plugin’s interface should now work properly. Previously the plugin would just fail silently and behave as if the link was edited, even if it wasn’t.


  • Made the timeout value used when checking links user-configurable.
  • The plugin will now report an error instead of failing silently when it can’t create the necessary database tables.
  • Added a table listing assorted debug info to the settings page. Click the small “Show debug info” link to display it.

  • Fixed the bug where the plugin would ignore FORCE_ADMIN_SSL setting and always use plain HTTP for it’s forms and AJAX.

  • Separated the user-side functions from the admin-side code so that the plugin only loads what’s required.
  • Changed some internal flags yet again.
  • Changed the algorithm for finding the server’s temp directory.
  • Fixed the URL extraction regexp again; turns out backreferences inside character classes don’t work.
  • Process shortcodes in URLs.
  • If the plugin can’t find a usable directory for temporary files, try wp-content.

pre> tags before parsing the post. Turns out they can actually contain valid links (oops).


  • Added an autogenerated changelog.
  • Added a workaround to make this plugin compatible with the SimplePress forum.
  • Fixed


pre> block parsing, again.
* Fixed a bug where URLs that only differ in character case would be treated as equivalent.

  • Fixed a rare bug where the settings page would redirect to the login screen when saving settings.

  • Fixed a SQL query that had the table prefix hard-coded as “wp_”. This would previously make the plugin detect zero links on sites that have a different table prefix.


  • Fix a bug when the plugin creates a DB table with the wrong prefix.


  • This is a near-complete rewrite with a lot of new features.
  • See � for details.


  • Fix false positives when the URL contains an #anchor


  • (Hopefully) fix join() failure when Snoopy doesn’t return any HTTP headers.


  • There are no release notes for this version

  • Arranxa un erro SQL cando se elimina unha publicación.


  • Changed required access caps for “Manage -> Broken Links” from manage_options to edit_ohers_posts. This will allow editor users to access that page and it’s functions.


  • Ordenación de ligazóns, algo experimental.
  • JavaScript sorting feature for the broken link list.


  • CURL isn’t required anymore. Snoopy is used when CURL isn’t available.
  • Post title in broken link list is now a link to the post (permalink). Consequently, removed “View” button.
  • Added a “Details” link. Clicking it will show/hide more info about the reported link.
  • “Unlink” and “Edit” now work for images, too. “Unlink” simply removes the image.
  • Database modifications to enable the changes described above.
  • Moved the URL checking function from wsblc_ajax.php to broken-link-checker.php; made it more flexible.
