Option to skip deleted content in Link Validator

Option to skip deleted content in Link Validator

0 Kudos

The Link Validator will check links to deleted content, but it's not usually worth the teacher's time to review errors on these links (especially since the content is deleted and cannot be edited). This idea is to add the option to Link Validator to skip deleted content (similar to how there is an option to skip unpublished content).

Thanks for sharing this idea. As it moves forward for broader discussion, you might also want to add a rating and comment to Link Validation.

I agree, and it is also cumbersome for instructors to have to sift through the HTML editor to find and remove "ghost links" where a link is included in the HTML code but is no longer linked to any visible text. It would be great to be able to remove these automatically from the link validator area, or to have an option to skip them so that instructors can focus on checking links that are actually visible to students.
