Broken Link Checker 1.8

Broken Link Checker was updated to version 1.8, from version 1.7.1. Changelog:

  • Added an option to only show the dashboard widget for users with the Administrator role, or to disable it completely.
  • Added a way to change the notification email address.
  • Added support for Smart YouTube “httpv://” links.
  • Added support for protocol-relative URLs (for example, “//example.com/”).
  • Added support for checking YouTube playlists.
  • Added a Brazilian Portuguese (pt-BR) translation.
  • Updated Chinese (Traditional) translation.
  • Switched over to storing plugin settings as JSON instead of serialized PHP arrays.
  • Improved error reporting in situations where the plugin can not load settings from the database.
  • Fixed: Display a more specific error message than just “update failed” when the plugin fails to modify a post. This only applies to WP 3.5+.
  • Fixed: Display the right URL for embedded YouTube playlists. Previously the plugin would show the same (incorrect) URL for all playlists.
