Customise broken link report fields to display URL

(Stef) #1

The Broken link report generated from my site has asset ID listed.
Is there a way to display the webpath/URL of the page instead of the asset ID?

I don’t think that would normally be possible, because the usual reason for ./?a=<assetid> URLs appearing in a broken link report is that the assets being linked to no longer exist.

When an asset is deleted in Matrix, its webpaths and URLs are too, so Matrix would no longer be able to look them up from the asset ID. All Matrix can do in those circumstances is tell you which asset was being referenced and is now broken.
