broken link checker on password protected site

Caroline Hamilton asked on December 10, 2018 04:53

Hi Kentico team, we're running our intranet on v10.0.1 and have recently undertaken a redevelopment. There are a huge number of broken links but there doesn't seem to be a way of doing a site-wide check (and can't use an external link check as the site is password protected. I did search DevNet and found this: Just wondering if there was a way to site-wide link check without external software or a plugin? If not then what would be the preferred option for a mac OS? thanks so much! Caroline

I assume the redevelopment is already done right? As you could have had the setting enabled with the option to keep original links as a page alias when you moved a page (only internal links keep working of course).

Do you have developer access? You could develop a scheduled task to check broken links. Otherwise you might need to look at third party tools.

Hi David

thanks! and yes - the redev has already happened. we are looking at third party tools. found something on github that seems to do the trick but am unsure. we would need to install python. for info see:

in terms of authentication I found

so it looks like we could set it up on my computer with my username and login in loginuserfield and loginpasswordfield and btw no - I'm not a developer! so I don't have dev access
