Broken Link Checker

IMPORTANT: Dashboard RSS 1.01 *must be installed* prior to installing this package. Get it from

Broken link checker for Umbraco finds links in your pages as you publish them and checks that they are valid. If any broken links are found then this is reported via the Umbraco dashboard.

Links are queued for checking and a background scheduled tasks perform the actual verification. Once a user has fixed a broken link, they remove it from their dashboard.

No configuration required: works straight from install.

IMPORTANT: due to a problem with the package action to add items to the dashboard you may have to configure the dashboard manually if you already have items on the dashboard.

The following tabs can be added to any dashboard section you wish:

<tab caption="Broken Links">
<tab caption="Queued Links">
