Link report

Available settings:

Time mask: Enter value as you would when setting up crontab in UNIX. Default: * * * * *. Please visit crontab.org for more information. Please note that the plugin uses the scheduler feature of October, so scheduling should be properly set up for this to work. Check the documentation for more information.

Response codes: (under "Which HTTP response codes should be reported?"). By default, only Client and Server errors are reported (broken links, response codes 400-511). However, you may also configure the plugin to log successful responses and redirections (response codes 200-308). Technically, the plugin does not check for broken links but just reports all links that match the selected response codes.

Check links within CMS files?: (checkbox). When selected, the plugin will scan through the current active theme files for links within the selected status.

Database fields: The plugin will scan for available database fields in all plugins. The plugin will go through every link found in the database for the given fields.

    WARNING: This plugin has an error, when I added this plugin it failed all my currently running cron jobs and gave this error: [InvalidArgumentException] is not a valid CRON expression. When I turned this plugin off the error goes away. I currently have a dozen other plugins running cron jobs fine!

    Seems like a come in handy plugin, Only i can't select a database field because i have plugins without a models folder. There should be a check because a models folder is not required for a plugin, like the Rainlab.Pages plugin for example. this makes it not useful.
