Check Websites And Webpages For Broken Links With LinkChecker

 

It can be quite frustrating for a user to find broken links while browsing through a website. The problem is that over a period of time a website is bound to suffer from broken links. This can be due to website content deletion, careless tagging and hyperlinking, failure of website components (e.g. a widget) and the like. Broken links can result in loss of visitors, search engine ranking, revenue, and can greatly damage a website’s reputation. For this reason it is necessary for webmasters to check their website for broken links on regular basis. LinkChecker is an open source broken link checking tool which checks a specified website or webpage for broken links.

Just enter a website or web page URL and click Start to initiate the scanning process. It must be noted that checking for broken links can take a very long period of time if your website has a lot of pages. When a link is scanned, the result section displays information about broken links found (if any), valid URLs and warnings.

Apparently, one might see a lot of errors when the scanning process is completed, however, many a times this can be due to your website’s security settings. Nonetheless, an experienced webmaster is likely to be able to easily identify actual broken links and errors on his/her website.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
