How to check links to download files?

Post by HansMerkl » Tue Apr 12, 2005 12:13 pm

Hi,

My site has several PDF files that can be downloaded. Can the batch Validator check these links too? I haven't found that feature yet.

On a related note: Does it check images embedded with an <IMG> tag?

Thanks

Yes, it will check HTTP links that are PDF files to make sure they exist. It also checks to make sure images specified with the "img" tag exist. Note that the link checker only checks local file and directory links and HTTP links, so if you're using FTP or HTTPS instead of HTTP, then it won't check it.

Thanks a lot for the info.

I can't tell you how much this software has helped me over the last months. It's a great tool.
