Quickly finding broken links

Hi there, 

The school district I work for has curated a large number of curriculum resources for each grade level of instruction. From time to time, users discover broken links to content or videos that send us into a scramble to find replacements for them. Does anyone know of a way to use a bot or some kind of program that can look through our entire Haiku page and identify broken links for us? This would help us to catch them before they become a problem for users.

 

Thanks,

Chrystal

Try this : https://validator.w3.org/checklink

 

Lot of paid services also available around that check sub folders since free ones may not do that.

 

Cheers,

Re: Quickly finding broken links

Thanks so much for the recommendation. The W3 site seems to only check links in the head of the page. You mentioned paid services. Do you know of any reasonable and reputable ones I could look into?

 

Thanks,
