Broken Links Troubleshooting

Local resources#

If you have bookmarks for resources that only accessible from your local network, they will be marked as broken. This happen because our automated scripts can't connect to such domains and by default we mark them as broken.

To change this behaviour:

  1. Visit settings
  2. Select Basic mode from Broken links dropdown
  3. Wait for few hours

Fix broken link#

If URL is incorrect such bookmark will be marked as broken. Just fix URL and wait for few hours, broken state will be updated automatically.

Modes#

To prevent false positives you can configure how strictly we should check your bookmarks. We have few different modes to choose from:

Basic mode#

  • Mark as "broken" only when origin server send 404 (not found) or 410 (gone) HTTP status

Default mode#

  • Origin server send 404 (not found) or 410 (gone) status
  • Or domain name is unresolved / not exists

Strict mode#

  • Same as "Default", plus:
  • Origin response is timed out (more than 13 sec)
  • Server is down or send error (408, 500, 521, 523, 524 HTTP status)
  • A lot of redirects
