How To Find And Fix Broken Links

One of the most annoying things for website visitors is clicking a link and getting an error message. This is known as a “404 error” and in an ideal world, we would never see it.

While you can’t control broken links outside your department pages, you can — and should — eliminate them on your own pages. One way to find broken links is to go through all your pages and manually click each link to make sure it works, but that can take a lot of time.

A faster way is to use a free browser extension available for Firefox or Chrome.

After installing the extension to your browser of choice*, you can check the links on your web page in seconds, with the click of a button. The tool will highlight broken links. Then you can open the page in WordPress and fix those links, thus making the World Wide Web a little bit better.

*You still use Internet Explorer or Safari? We recommend that you download and try either Firefox or Chrome because:

  • They play nicely with WordPress
  • You can use handy plug-in’s like the ones mentioned above
