Configuration

You find the standard configuration in EXT:linkvalidator/Configuration/TsConfig/Page/pagetsconfig.txt.

This may serve you as an example on how to configure the extension for your needs.

Reference

You can set the following options in the TSconfig for a page (e.g. the root page) and override them in user or groups TSconfig. You must prefix them with mod.linkvalidator, e.g. mod.linkvalidator.searchFields.pages = media.

searchFields.[key]

Property

searchFields.[key]

Data type

string

Description

Comma separated list of table fields in which to check for broken links.

Example :

pages = media,url

Default

pages = media,url
tt_content = bodytext,header_link,records

linktypes

Property

linktypes

Data type

string

Description

Comma separated list of hooks to load.

Possible values:

db: Check links to database records.

file: Check links to files located in your local TYPO3 installation.

This list may be extended by other extensions providing a linktype checker, e.g. DAM.

Default

checkhidden

Property

Data type

Description

If set, disabled pages and content elements are checked for broken links, too.

Default

showCheckLinkTab

Property

Description

If set, the backend module shows a "Check Links" tab, which you can use to perform the checks on demand.

The Check links tab is visible

The Check links tab is visible

Note

Depending on the number of page levels to check and on the number of links in these pages, this check can take some time and need some resources. For large sites it might therefore be advisable to hide the tab.

Note

Linkvalidator uses a database table to store information about the broken links, which it found in your website. If showCheckLinkTab is set to 0, you must use the scheduler task provided by linkvalidator to update these information.
