RSteinwand wrote:Link checking with CSE has never worked for me. With several websites on my development computer and links that start with /css or /images, there's no way it's going to check my links and if I do want to check them, I could always use other tools. I'd rather have it do a more extensive check of syntax, and script errors, because CSE is good at that stuff. Link checking is unimportant to me and a waste of time.
RSteinwand wrote:Could we have just a checkbox that enables link checking and everything related to link checking could be disabled (grayed-out or however you do it), unless the option is checked? That way, one checkbox turns it on and off yet still preserving the settings.
Albert Wiersch wrote:I think that in this case the option you want is in the Link Checking page of the Options->Editor Options (in v10). Do you have the "Automatically check links in the background" option unchecked?
Albert Wiersch wrote:Are you using v10? I bet you could use the link checking if you setup some path mappings in the Link Checking->Path Mapping page of the Validator Engine Options. Setting up paths will help CSE HTML Validator check the correct link.
Albert Wiersch wrote:There is an Options->Offline Mode setting. I wonder if that would do what you want?
RSteinwand wrote:Hi Albert. No, I wasn't aware of that setting. I assumed all the link checking settings were in that one area.
Yes, that fixed it.
