Check Source Code links


The check source URLs module is to review the source code in a module or a directory to find any broken links. When the module is first installed it obtains a list of top level domains from To review a module a dev task has been created which can be run to check urls in the source code of php, JavaScript, SilverStripe templates and MarkDown files. It need the php module curl to be installed and it records all the suspected broken urls it finds in a table.

The list it returns can not be guaranteed but it gives a good indication of broken urls.
