Yurls linkchecker extended

May 8, 2011

The link checker on Yurls you can check whether the links on your Yurl still work. Recently we extended the link checker. Not only the dead links are found, but also the links that still work, but a permanent redirect to another URL. To check these links can be useful because it is not always directed to a page or website of your choice. You can find the link checker under ‘settings’.
