Broken Link Checker 1.9

Broken Link Checker was updated to version 1.9, from version 1.8.3. Changelog:

  • Added the ability to edit link text from inside the plugin. This features is only available for certain types of links.
  • Added a “suggestions” feature. When you go to edit a broken link, the plugin will now suggest replacing it with an archived page from the Wayback Machine (if available). You can disable suggestions in Settings -> Link Checker -> General.
  • Added a Hebrew translation.
  • Added support for HTML code in custom fields. To make the plugin treat a field as HTML, prefix its name with “html:” in BLC settings. For example, if you have a custom field named “foo” that contains HTML, enter it as “html:foo”.
  • Fixed: The “Status” column is now properly updated when editing a link.
  • Fixed: Visual feedback when a link is successfully edited. Basically, it briefly changes the row background to green.
  • Fixed: Email notifications will only include the “see all broken links here” link if the recipient can actually access that link.
  • Fixed some UI labels not being localizable.
  • The “Undismiss” action is now displayed in all views instead of only the “Dismissed” view. This way you can tell if a broken link has been dismissed without having to search the “Dismissed” list.
  • Added information about the last email notification sent to debug info. It’s accessible by clicking “show debug info” on the plugin settings page.
