After updating the old link title is in weird characters #2620
Describe the bug
Well, the good news is that getting started with curl to trigger an api call is pretty straightforward.
The Update-30X plugin checks existing long urls for redirects, storing the final destination. It also provides a list of unreachable links in the return call, which was intended to make adding 404 management trivial.
For title updating, you might take a look at this title re-fetch plugin I threw together.
If it's useful to you, I also make use of a URL-Health Check plugin which does what Update -30X does and more when links are initially submitted. It needs some work, particularly when determining reach-ability of links, but is reliable.
I like the idea of working these into a unified link-management / housekeeping plugin, periodically addressing 30X and 40X errors, and cleaning titles with a cron job. But in the meantime the title refetch plugin would be my suggestion in this case.
