How to handle False Positive's

Most likely that you will encounter links incorrectly marked as broken or redirects. Firewalls are an issue but also redirects to cookie pages, timeouts and more.

Marking links to ignore for now or permanent

All states are hidden in the Links overview, unless you select them explicitly.

There are buttons to change the state of the link in the response column and in the toolbar.

Ignore

You can mark links to be ignored. They are not rechecked anymore.

Working

Alternatively, you can mark a link as working. These links are rechecked. If the response state of the links changes, the working status is reset.

Hide

This hides a link until the next link check. This state can be useful if you can't fix or remove a link immediately.
