Even when using a CMS (Content Management System) checking websites for broken links is an issue. By far not everybody uses a CMS, and for finding broken links to external web pages or for identifying invalid e-mail addresses more specialized tools are needed. LinkByLink addresses this and other tasks. The software and the user's manual are available in English and in German.
The results of a website check executed by LinkByLink can be exported in several formats and can be filtered by regular expressions. The integrated HTML source code browser helps finding the exact location of an error in the HTML sources.
Accessing secure websites is supported by a certificate and authentication manager. The number of parallel connections can be configured globally and on a per-host basis. Multi-threading ensures an optimum of performance. The Pro Edition offsers additional features like a validating HTML parser, a console mode for automated tests, storing test results in a database or forwarding results by email.
