Anyone know if it's possible to turn off outbound link checking? I'm fairly certain my host is blocking outgoing web requests so every outbound link is failing. It's not really a metric I'm concerned about so happy to just switch off that if there was a flag?
you should drop that host.
what if you need to use an external api for a feature?
how does umbraco check for updates?
You can't disable that. It's also one of the key features to have a Broken link checker. Would be too bad if you need to skip that because of a host :-(
I'm still seeing this on two different websites. I'm guessing that I'm the common denominator but can't see why it is reporting links being broken when they clearly aren't...
It will report them broken if they can't be accessed by the tool. For now it is not possible to disable those validations.
Understood but nothing is blocking the tool as far as I can see. It's just a bog standard app service for one and an Umbraco Cloud site for the other. Every link comes us a broken...
Could be blocking on the windows box. It's using a HttpClient on the server.
Will try and turn on full debug in log4net to see if it can detail anything.
We have the same issue - did you manage to resolve this?
For cloud you could either whitelist the IP, or use the following snippet:
For authenticated requests there is an option in SEOChecker
Add the following info to the appSettings section of your web.config
<!--SEO Checker settings-->
<add key="SEOCheckerConnectAsUmbracoMember" value="true"/>
<add key="SEOCheckerUmbracoMemberName" value="richard"/>
<add key="SEOCheckerUmbracoMemberPassword" value="my secrect password"/>
When SEOCheckerConnectAsUmbracoMember is true it use the name and password to login to the site.
Hope this helps,
Thanks Richard, I will ask the client to check again with regards to the inbound/outbound connectivity. The site can be accessed fine from the server itself and externally at the moment. There are no members or protected content currently.
