Hello, I am going to buy it today if you can answer my one question ASAP. I am not getting the list of scans in demo version. I tried to create a new scan, but that is not appearing on the list of scans. If it comes only in pro, then its fine. Thanks

Hi muksat, thanks for your message.

Demo version should list the scans, there is not a limitation in this sense.

Are you using a multisite install? Currently there is no support for global activation, the plugin needs to be activated locally for each single blog. Otherwise, it is recommended to run only one scan at the same time per each web server.

Kind regards, Pau

Is there any way to make it work for multi site ? I have 2 site for french and English and French. I installed it from network admin then “Network activate”.

Hi, sorry the plugin does not work well with network activation, you need to activate locally for each single blog.

Kind regards, Pau

Hi, quick question. Do you know if your pugin works fine with multilingual sites using WPML? I have tested your plugin in a single-language blog and it worked fine, but now I am trying to run a scan in a WPML blog and the scan status say “waiting” but it looks that it is not working…

Thanks in advance

I don’t think so… I will check later along the week. Thanks for your support.

hi again, the plugin does not work on eserpblog.com (wordfence deactivated). Is there any check or test I can do in order to try to understand why it is not working?

Hi, it seems a WordPress multisite, do you have activated the plugin via the network activation? Currently does not support global network activation and it nees to be activated for each blog invididually.

Please let me know if local activation resolves the issue.

Im getting a message :Warning: mysql_query(): Unable to save result set in /home/mikepwhitepants/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1870

Hi ColeBField1221, thanks for your message,

Just to be sure that the problem is related with this plugin, where do you get the error?

Kind regards, Pau

On the admin plugin page.

Warning: mysql_query(): Unable to save result set in other stuff here – wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1870

Sorry, I have not seen this error before, searching for general information it seems a major MySQL error problem like table corruption.

Maybe you need to do a check and repair MySQL tables, via phpMyAdmin or similar.

Sorry if I can not to help you more.

Kind regards, Pau

Hi I have a few questions, if we edit url’s through this pro plugin , and then later delete the plugin, are the changes gone ? Would deleting the plugin undue anything ?

Hi, thanks for your question,

when you edit an URL the changes are made from the post content, so there are permanent changes for the edited posts and this plugin links database.

Deleting this plugin only removes custom tables if you check the option “Data on uninstall” from the settings page (unchecked by default). More info here:


Please let me know if you have more doubts or something is not clear.

Kind regards, Pau

Out of curiosity, why would someone not want the check box checked ? and to clarify then, if the check box is checked and plugin is deleted , nothing will happen since the changes were made to the theme and the plugin just acted liked an “edit portal” so deleting the plugin does not change any of the work i would have done?

The checkbox checked means only that the plugin data will be removed (custom tables and this plugin only options).

It is unchecked by default to avoid data removed after testing the plugin with the demo version, for example. When the Pro version is installed the previous data can be reused (the scans from demo version, or lite version from wordpress.org installs).

The scope is only the plugin data, deleting the plugin does not affect to the WP data (post content, comment links, etc.). Any previous change editing links is permanent, in the same way if you edit a post with the WP editor.

Kind regards, Pau

It works with ACF fields? I mean: bulk deleting broken links inserted through ACF, for example. Thanks!

Hi lciantas, sorry for reply late,

Yes, it works with custom fields defined by ACF. You need to add the custom field name in the scan “Content Options” tab and select if it is a full URL or an HTML fragment containing links.

About what can you do with this custom fields in search results, you can remove the link only for custom fields with HTML content. For custom fields with full URLs you can just edit the URL, but not remove the entire custom field associated to the post.

Kind regards, Pau

Loving this plugin, an export function would increase the value so much more. Any chance you could add it? Thanks

Hi, thanks for your message, we are preparing a new version and this feature is included on the roadmap, but we don’t have a clear deadline yet, sorry.

Kind regards, Pau

Hi, how to edit and unlink the link in the comment field? It is the link that come with the author name, the website URL user enter is not correct. Not the link inside the comment content.

Hi, thanks for your message.

For the author comment link you can change only the target URL editing the link from the search results.

But it is not possible to unlink this kind of link, or changing attributes like nofollow, because it is a template-level job and the entire link is hardcoded in the comments template, so you need to modify the template to do this task.

Kind regards, Pau
