Validates external Urls in Wiki topics
This extension is best run from the command line, perhaps from a monthly cronjob..
./rest /ValidateUrlsPlugin/getExternalLinks web=Sandbox
This will generate or update
for the Sandbox web, listing all the url's it finds in the topics of the Sandbox web, listed either as broken, or working (from the point of view of the server).
If you run this rest handler from your browser, it will try to update the topic (assuming you have (admin) permission to write to that web/topic), and it will not
attempt to validate the urls.
The topics are set to be viewable only by the AdminGroup
, so that there is less risk of exposing url's listed on view restricted topics.
This can be changed by setting
to the group that you want to allow (set to WikiGuest
if you're ok with the list being public).
