This plugin currently is under heavy development

As I'm currently reworking the whole core, here's the late Alpha or early Beta. Please note that this release is moving towards a Beta and then RC candidate, but in the meantime features might get added or dropped. Only the core functionality is somewhat safe to use. Please use with caution and if you find a strange behavior, please take yourself a minute and report a bug. Software development takes two sides: The devloper and the user. Want to become a user? Give it a test drive.

If you like it and want to tell me, drop a mail or just open an issue. Or buy me a beer!

As you're already thinking about giving this a test run: If you find a feature, just add your request as issue as well. I'll consider and discuss everything down the road.

Plugin Name


Internal Link Checker

Adds a meta box to the post edit screen that shows all internal links from other posts to the currently displayed post. The plugin works out of the box.


No explanation needed - works out of the box. Just activate and be safe.
