Validate existing links (web URLs only)

Last modified June 30, 2021

The Page Editor allows you to validate a single active link, multiple selected links, or all the links in your digital edition!

Validates all links in the issue

Validates selected links only.

After the validation of all or selected links completes you may see some invalid links listed.  You can click on each link in the list to correct it.

Go back to the validation report by clicking on the validate links button; newly added links will be rechecked, too.


  • URL validation only check that the URL you specified exists and does not return an error, not whether or not it’s the correct URL.
  • Many URLs require the presence of “www” to function properly.
  • Some valid web URLs will return errors, e.g. if a server is down or the content won’t be live until the issue’s publication date. You can ignore such errors.
  • Email addresses and page links are not validated.
