Find and fix broken, external, and orphaned links in Dreamweaver.
Use the Check Links feature to search for broken links and orphaned files (files that still exist in the site but that aren’t linked to by any other files in the site). You can search an open file, a portion of a local site, or an entire local site.
Dreamweaver verifies links only to documents within the site; Dreamweaver compiles a list of external links in the selected document or documents but does not verify them.
You can also identify and delete files that are no longer used by other files in your site.
From the Files panel, open the file.
Select Site > Site Options > Check Links Sitewide.
From the Show drop-down list, select one of the following:
From the flyout menu, choose one of the following:
The Link Checker displays the results.
To save the report, from the Link Checker flyout menu, select Save Results...
The report is a temporary file. You will lose the report if you do not save it.
After you run a links reports, you can fix broken links and image references directly in the Link Checker panel, or you can open files from the list and fix links in the Property inspector.
In the Broken Links column (not the Files column) of the Link Checker panel (Window > Results > Link Checker), select the broken link.
A folder icon appears next to the broken link.
If there are other broken references to this same file, you are prompted to fix the references in the other files as well. Click Yes to have Dreamweaver update all the documents on the list that reference this file. Click No to have Dreamweaver update the current reference only.
If Enable File Check In And Check Out is enabled for the site, Dreamweaver attempts to check out files that require changes. If it cannot check out a file, Dreamweaver displays a warning dialog box and leaves broken references unchanged.
Dreamweaver opens the document, selects the broken image or link, and highlights the path and filename in the Property inspector. (If the Property inspector is not visible, select Window > Properties to open it.)
If you are updating an image reference and the new image appears at the incorrect size, click the W and H labels in the Property inspector or click the Refresh button to reset the height and width values.
As links are fixed, their entries disappear from the Link Checker list. If an entry still appears in the list after you enter a new path or filename in the Link Checker (or after you save changes in the Property inspector), Dreamweaver cannot find the new file and still considers the link broken.
