The MindTouch link manager creates a report showing all of your links and their status. The status of each link is color coded so you know the appropriate steps to take to fix the link.
 

Why is link integrity important? 


Your MindTouch pages are interconnected in more ways than just your hierarchy. Links play an essential role in tying pages together. These connections, while essential for navigation, can negatively impact your user experience if managed incorrectly.  Should any pages be moved or deleted, links to those pages could generate 302 redirects, or worse, 404 Page Not Found errors.
