Recursively checks a webpage for broken links.
This tool checks a webpage and recursively the linked pages for any broken links until a specified recursive depth is reached. Once the check has been completed the result will be available in a neat CSV file.
A special feature is the possibility of narrowing down the search by only checking for links that are inside a certain HTML DOM element (specified a CSS selector) and furthermore by being able to exlude links that contain special keywords (e.g. logout, signout, delete or remove) or that do NOT contain a defined string.
Open the page to be initially checked.
Click on the extension icon in the top right corner.
Maximum recursive depth
Default: 2 (checks all links on current page and again all links on pages linked to on the initial page)
Only continue checking for URLs containing
(leave blank if not needed)
Example: example.com (won’t check any further on e.g. test.com pages, that example.com or any of its subpages might have linked to)
Don't visit URLs containing
(separate by comma, leave blank if not needed)
Only check links in DOM elements qualified by
(use CSS selector syntax, leave blank if not needed)
Example: #contentSectionB (only selects HTML element with ID “contentSectionB”)
Click “Initiate check”.
CSV file will be generated. Open with Excel. Apply filter -> Exclude Status = OK.
