It would be nice if thebrain could detect and report which links are broken.
So that the user is aware from it and can take a decision to adres the problem.

Thanks,
Gerard

+1 - Ideally including links in notes as well as attached links

Yes Metta this is allready possible with this application underneath, thanks for the support.

Here is a link to a dead link checker with which we can even give more explanation to the user why a link has a dead end.There is also a site check (free broken tool) which crawls within the site to identify the broken links for you to fix it.

https://www.deadlinkchecker.com/error-codes.asp

With kind regards,
Gerard

Looks like it could be a great tool in theory, Gerard.

However, I just now ran a link check on a site that has dozens of broken links, and it only caught 2 of them.

Also tried running it on a small brain where I deliberately added in 2 broken links (1 attachment, 1 note link) -- and it didn't catch either.

Nonetheless, this does give me a good idea to check for a tool like this that might be at least a bit more accurate. ðŸ˜‰

In the meantime, thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Metta,

Maybe that the webssites have to be indexed first ?? Normally ik takes a few months before that's done.
Did you expand the researched site in your browser first ? 
I look further on too.
Kind regards,
Gerard

Not sure what type of index you mean, Gerard. The site with all the broken links has been online since 1998, it includes a site map and it is regularly scanned by Google's "robots".

This site was not open at the time I ran my search, but I didn't see anything about the sites needing to be open for the dead link checker to work.

In any case, the brain site was open -- and I'm not sure how "indexing" would apply to a brain.

Hi,

We do have a ticket to add this type of detection to the data integrity scan. I've updated that ticket with your comments here.

Cheers, Sean
