View Full Version : AnyLink - Validating Links

09-24-2007, 08:33 PM
1) Script Title: AnyLink Drop-Down Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm

3) Describe problem: I can't find a link checker that will validate my AnyLink menus. Can anyone point me to something? I apologize if this has already been discussed. I searched but couldn't find anything.

What do you mean by "link validator?" Do you mean a markup validator (http://validator.w3.org/), or merely something that checks that any of the links within the menu aren't dead?

Just something that will tell me if the drop-down menu links are broken. I use HTML Link Validator now, and it does check links in the head, but not AnyLink Drop-Down Menu links.

Edit: I understand that browsers don't recognize HTML inside <script> elements (except closing tags oddly enough), but there's got to be something out there that will check these links.

I'm pretty sure I've run into link validator programs that can interpret HTML that's output via JavaScript, which is what you need here. Or, you can switch to Anylink CSS Menu (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/anylinkcss.htm), which is different in that all the menu links are embedded as normal HTML on the page, bypassing your issue altogether.
