Forexlive uses a new syntax for market news. However, our broken links tool says that the links are broken.
We would like to manually fix all broken links to Forexlive inside our tool.

 

Method1: Follow redirects and Fix URL manually

 

Step1: Order

Open Broken Links Plugin and order by URL

Step2: ForexLive start

Go to the point where Forexlive Broken links start.

Broken Links ForexLive

I have already fixed the first one.

Step3: Open Link Manually

Open the link in Forexlive. The old link will be redirected to the new syntax.

Old URL:

Hence you click on http://www.forexlive.com/blog/2009/01/30/swiss-finmin-reverses-course-on-intervention/

and this one opens
New URL

http://news.forexlive.com/!/swiss-finmin-reverses-course-on-intervention-20090130

 

Step4: Replace manually

Replace the old URL in Broken Links Checker with the new URL.

 

Method2: Use fix redirects 

Similar as above do:

Step1:

Open Broken Links Plugin and order by URL

Step2:

Go to the point where Forexlive Broken links start.

 

Step3: Use Fix Redirect

 

The Broken Link Checker has a nice function called “Fix Redirect”. As soon as it realizes that there is a redirect for a broken link, it stores the redirect link in the database.

We use the bulk fix redirect for all concerned pages.

The first one was already done before, therefore “Failed to 1 redirect”.

 

 

Solve Bug in fix redirect with replacement

However, there is a bug in the fix redirect.

It generates such a URL:

Wrong URL:  http://www.forexlive.com//news.forexlive.com/!/eur-crosses-taking-the-lead-as-we-enter-the-doldrums-20090701

But it should be

Correct URL:

//news.forexlive.com/!/eur-crosses-taking-the-lead-as-we-enter-the-doldrums-20090701

 

For solving this problem, we use again the Better Search Replace tool.
