Any plugin to kill dead internal links?

Just fishing in the dark: Is there a Textpattern plugin to alarm of – or even assist fixing – dead internal links of a TXP site?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Any plugin to kill dead internal links?

I don’t know of one. There are quite a few online service that do that – search for “dead link checker”, “broken link checker” or “link rot checker” …

For the Mac, there’s a tool called Integrity (free version available with more fully functioned pay versions) which is reputedly very good and by an indie developer. I’m sure there are similar tools for Windows too.

Finally, there are server-based tools that you could probably have run on a regular basis using a cronjob or similar. Here’s on picked totally at random – Fink. I couldn’t vouch for it, but it may do what you want. There are others too, and some may potentially be incorporable into a plugin.

Happened to chance across this thread that also mentions using curl to check for dead links.

Hi jayrope,

Are the dead links because of deletions, schema change, or site_url change?
