  1. How do I use broken link checker to update the internal links?

    1. Hi, thank you for stopping by. The broken link checker gives you a list of all the links (internal and external) in your site which no longer are working (Page not found errors, redirected etc). It will not automatically fix the errors, but you can go to the individual posts provided in the list and update the incorrect URLs to point to them to the right place. In the plugins I have listed, I think of the “Redirection” plugin as more of a temporary solution to incorrect URLs. The broken link checker and corresponding post updates, on the other hand, is the permanent solution. Hope this helps. Thanks again for stopping by and commenting. Cheers, D

    This was perfect! Just followed your instructions and it worked perfectly. I was quite nervous about doing it myself but so glad I did- wasn’t too difficult at all. Thanks a million!
