WordPress Broken Link Checker – a must-have plugin

On 10 January, 2013 by Carol

Broken Link Checker is a simple  WordPress plugin to check broken links on your pages, posts, comments and missing images.
You will be getting a report via e-mail and a full report on your dashboard with all your links, split by status and the option to bulk edit/check/fix/unlink  them.

As you see in the screenshot below, the report is quite clear and the cleaning up process couldn’t be easier.
