LinkX gives your surfers the ability to report broken and cheating links to you so they can be processed by one of your administrators. By default, on the link details page there is a link that your surfers can use to report a bad link. All they have to do is click that link and enter information on what is wrong with this link. You can then process these reports through the LinkX control panel, which is described in this document.
Viewing and Processing Bad Link Reports
To view the bad link reports that have yet to be processed, access the To Do > Review Reports function from the control panel menu. This will display a page where you will be able to see all of the bad link reports that have been submitted but not yet processed. For each bad link report you will see the information that the user submitted, their IP address, and the date and time the report was submitted. Below each report you will find information about the link that has been reported, including the site URL, title, and description.
In the table that displays the bad link reports, you will find several functions that you can run on a single bad link report. Each of those functions are described below.
