Check My Links is a link checker that crawls through your webpage and looks for broken links.
'Check My Links' is an extension developed primarily for web designers, developers and content editors.
When you're editing a web page that has lots of links, wouldn't it be handy to be able to quickly check that all the links on the page are working ok? That's where 'Check My Links' comes in.
'Check My Links' quickly finds all the links on a web page, and checks each one for you. It highlights which ones are valid and which ones are broken, simple as that.
Comments and feedback are welcome both here and directly to me on Twitter (@ocodia).
Version 3.7: Now works with local files, bug fixes, copy tweaks, general spring-cleaning (thanks to kyleladd, njablonski, tbrandles, pbx, iamdevelish for this release).
Version 3.6: Added optional 'warnings' for empty href attributes, trailing #s and anchor tags. Also, invalid links can now be dumped into the console in CSV format for export (many thanks to Kyle Ladd for this stuff).
Version 3.5.1: Sets 'noFollow' default to false on first run & checks for existence of either ID or Name attributes on pages linked to using URL fragments.
Version 3.5: Optionally check rel="nofollow" links, anchor links are now also validated, GET is now the default request method and you can now close the report box and re-run the checking process multiple times without any weirdness.
Version 3.4: You can now optionally cache valid links (green coloured, HTTP 200). This means the extension will always consider them valid each time you run the checking process, and therefore check only the red (broken) links each time... making page checking A LOT faster (many thanks to Kyle Ladd for this feature).
Also, you can click on the cache and method links on the page to quickly get to the options page (allowing you to change the HTTP method and caching settings quickly).
The extension also doesn't render multiple times on the page when re-clicking on the extension button.
Version 3.3.4: Now allows you to check links in a local file (note this requires the 'Allow access to file URLs' checkbox to be ticked in the Chrome extensions screen).
Version 3.3: Bugfixin'
Version 3.2: Added the option to choose the HTTP Request Type (HEAD or GET).
Version 3.1.2: Fixed blacklist (on the options page) not saving.
