When accessing my author via dispatcher (
http://myauthor.mycompany.com), the Link Checker Service adds internal links to the external links list.
Some responses created by CQ WCM include the referer information (any code that uses the HtmlResponse, such as SlingPostServlet). This referrer is then a fully qualified URL including "http" or "https", which is then treated as external link.
Add an exception to the link checker to tell it to ignore all URL patterns for hostnames that are used to access the author instance through the dispatcher. To do this, do the following:
cq5author.mycompany.com, then your override pattern would be:
/var/linkcheckercorresponding to the invalid link's host
[port] above refer to the hostname and port of your CQ5 author server.
[yourapp] refers to the name of your CQ5 application under
WARNING: If you apply this configuration and your users accidentally create links that point to
http://cq5author.mycompany.com/... instead of using the path then these links will be broken in your publish instance. To avoid this problem, please notify your authors that they must use paths for all internal links.
