Description

This is one of several possible solution to ignore specific URLs on link checking in order to reduce the number of falsely reported broken links (that are not broken). The other solutions can be found below under "*Alternatives*".

It should be possible to mark a link as not to be checked in the RTE

Disadavantages

  • if there are specific URLs that should not get checked, it would probably be better to exclude these in a central place. Otherwise, if an URL is used several times, it must be marked with "nolinkcheck" every time

Advantages

  • this solution gives the editor the possibility to exclude URLs. Most other solutions would most likely have to be done by an admin
  • this solution could also be used by for other external link checkers

Alternatives

  1. this patch (mark specific link only)
  2. Provide configuration for ignoring specific URLs (e.g. exact match / regex / starts with match) in central linkvalidator page TS config configuration, see #85127
  3. Make it possible to click on a link directly in the list of broken links to permanently add it to an exclude list. However this adds more overhead to the link checking: the exclude-list would have to be checked for every broken link.
