Schedule Validations or Link Checks

By using a scheduling program like the Task Scheduler app in Windows, CSS HTML Validator's command line processor can be used to run validations or other jobs at scheduled times.

For example, you can use the command line processor to create a batch file that runs a Batch Wizard job and then emails, uploads (to a web server or other server), and/or publishes the report (this may require additional 3rd party software). You can then schedule this batch file to run at specific times. See the example below.


This example runs a Batch Wizard job at scheduled times and optionally uploads the report to a server.

Choose a folder (with write permission) to save the needed files which will include a Batch Wizard target list file and a batch file. This example uses the folder C:\Users\(username)\validator, but you could use another folder.

Please note that on 32-bit systems you may need to change "Program Files (x86)" to "Program Files".
