I went to GPL links and tried to get on the GPL alternative forum. Unfortunately the link is dead. It is part of the F1 Legends site ������
TP:

Regarding gpllinks...

Yesterday began testing link checkers capability to analyze the 600-plus links on the page.

So far, those at the top of Google search have gone into apoplexy and either offer nothing or roll-on forever and never complete the test. Maybe wait a few more hours rather leave the tab open for almost two before shutting it down incomplete?

Once had a nifty link checker that posted its result in a text file in a few minutes. Eventually its probably Win98  config just quit working and any upgrade was no longer available.

Now many issues there because of F1Legends.
Also, noticed recently that searching here often find only getting recent results, not from Day 1...sometimes no results before 2017.
So likely now even links from gpllinks to here may not be working as well.

Anyone know of a free and capable link checker that offers useful results rather than site statistics?

Anyone interested in reviewing links to here and if possible restore them to their destination?

GPL++ The Add-ons is up after many years since an active site.
It continues to be a great resource for everyone.
Not easy to understand why the F1Legends site was closed and not supported as a legacy site.
Especially as its absence has caused all this now necessary effort by so many.


:D

Thanks for looking Ginetto.
Yes I ran that one.
But it only gives the link destination, not the link as named on gpllinks.
Not sure how to match them up.
Or did I miss something there?

The one I used before listed the broken links as named on the page.



:D

Hoovering over a name with your mouse pointer in gplinks page, you will see the link address in the lower left of your browser; is not difficult to spot out all the links listed in those 2 pages :)

Yes! Thanks, Stefan, for providing our "life line" at the GPL Alternative Forum.  It is a good way to keep informed when things go sideways.  :)
