I am looking for a tool or tools for the following
1. Find broken links, show site map like the old astra Site manager do (but they discontinued)
2. A tool which will find reverse lookup. For example, list all the pages in a root folder which does not have a particular string.
Also, I love to hear any recommendations for new automations methods for a small scale web site.
I've used Xenu in my spare time to help out with link checking on our corporate web site... http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html
It works fairly well... and the price is right!
Xenu is a good tool for what you need to accomplish.
Even Link Checker Pro is also a very good tool. It has more features than Xenu but the problem with it is....a bit slow when compared with Xenu.
My project consists of 5400 links in total and Xenu checked all the links in just 1 hour whereas Link checker Pro took 3 hours to do the same.
Check badboy automation tool it has a spider feature which checks all the links on all the sites pages.
Find it on www.badboy.com.au
