Link Checker by AddonsLab 1.6.1

No permission to buy ($21.99)
Here is a minor update that implements a new option to show link status as a tooltip on the icons in front-end.

The new version is available for all licensed customers at

Thank you!
In this release, we have improved the algorithm, especially fixing the cases, when the remote server denies the requests and replies with "429 Too Many Requests" header. Now the product will delay the check to such servers automatically, checking the links every 1 second in secondary (deferred) tasks.

On Rebuild Data page there is a checkbox now to check only URLs that failed previously with "429" header. Once the check is complete, you will see the number of deferred tasks and when the last one is scheduled to execute. Visiting Rebuild Data page, you will see this information if there are any deferred tasks. Once there are no deferred tasks left, you can see link statuses in Batch Update page, there should not be any 429 status code anymore.

Another bug was causing valid URLs to be shown as invalid on front-end. This was the case only when the same page has two or more of the same URL, but the check for the URL was successful one time, and it failed some other time. Now, if the link was checked successfully at least one time, its status will be valid on front-end.

This is a minor release with some new UI features and stability enhancements.

After Batch Processing the message will show how many links are updated/deleted. The same page will contain buttons to go back to the Batch Update or Manage Links pages.

After the tasks on Rebuild Data page run, they will show the message "Cache rebuild successfully"

We have got a report about a link returning error "Error in cURL request: Empty reply from server". Our product sends so called "head" request to check link statuses - it does not fetch the entire content of the page, but only asks for headers. This makes the requests faster and saves bandwidth. Some servers, however, don't seem to support this type of request. We have implemented a workaround for these cases, and for such servers full request will be sent.

We have received some reports, that some links don't work in our product, but works in the browser. We have troubleshot the cases and see, that sometimes they are caused by "User Agent" of the product being blocked on the remote site. By default, the "User Agent" contains your board URL so that the remote site may have blocked your site by URL. Our later versions changed the user agent to "AddonsLab/URLStatusChecker/1.0", however, it seems, the word "Checker" is blocked on some sites.

So we have decided to make an option that allows you set the user agent to use. This does not, however, mean, that you should change the user agent often to avoid being blocked by remote sites. Doing so may even be illegal in some cases. Please choose an identifier that works the best for you, and do not change it. Respect the right of remote sites to block your site if they don't want you to send requests to them.

User agent format is usually ProductName/number.number (any comment here).

With this release, we have implemented several enhancements.

Now Batch Update page will keep the values entered even if you visit the page later (stored in cookies). After deleting a link from Quick Edit form, it will redirect back to Batch Update page, and the page will already be pre-filled with the values you had there.

We have also implemented a way to convert a URL into a text by setting the "Process URL" field to Replace Fully and leave the field empty. Link Text will be used as a replacement.

A new option is added to define the number of links to show in the preview in Batch Update page. Another field is now available in the Batch Update page, where you can set the maximum number of links to process. You can use it if you are not sure how the replacement will work exactly so that you can set a minimum limit and check manually how the replacement worked. You can also change the default limit of 1000 in case processing of so many links times out on your server setup.
