What will it look like? How do I use it?
We’ve created a video to show you what the fix can do:
What links are checked?
All links in the post that you are updating, saving, or posting.
Do I have to wait for the check to complete?
Nope! If you navigate away from the page before the check is done, that’s okay. You can always go back later to re-run it.
How do I fix a link if it is broken?
You can either click the “Find in Post” button or scroll down to find the link in your text. There you can edit the link just link you would when writing a post.
Why doesn’t it find all broken links on the site?
Checking each link and where it goes takes a lot of resources. At this time, we’re just checking one page at a time to avoid site slowdowns. Stay tuned for future updates as we are working on solutions to finding all broken links without causing site issues. If there are specific pages that you want to check for broken links – especially those that are high traffic – you can go ahead and spot check those by posting an update.
Does this feature work with Gutenberg?
Why am I getting some false positives on the Broken Link Finder?
Some websites have extra security that does not let us check their status. We are planning a future upgrade to allow you to put certain domains on an “ignore list” so they don’t keep showing up as broken.
How do I get this feature?
You need to have Live Fix. If you already have it, comment on our pinned post about the new feature with your name and blog url. If you don’t have it, start here. It will automatically be applied when Live Fix is configured. Any fixes you’ve purchased in the past will be applied too!
