The Link Checker feature saves time and effort by automatically checking all links in your Knowledge Base and by providing a user-friendly interface where you can easily fix any broken link found.
Why should I use it?
Broken links are links that do not work or lead to an error page, and they can be frustrating for users trying to access important information.
By using the Link Checker feature, you can improve the overall user experience of your Knowledge Base by ensuring that all links are functioning correctly. This helps the users of your Knowledge Base access the information they need quickly and easily, which leads to increased customer satisfaction.
How do I use it?
The Link Checker always auto-checks your links every few days, so you don't have to worry about that. To use this feature, click on this button in the Dashboard's sidebar to access the Article Links page:
On this page you will have access to all the broken links found in your articles, where you can:
- Replace each broken link with valid ones in all the articles they appear.
- Ignore a specific link.
- Check the articles where each broken link appears.
- Check if the link points to an external or internal location of your KB.
- Check the status error of each broken link.
