    Is there some program (preferably mac) or firefox plugin that can check a local site for links just listed like this:


    I’ve tried to use some other link checker programs, but whenever it tries the # link, it thinks it’s a good link because it would go to

    Is there something that will let me specify what to look for in the href quotations?



    In Dreamweaver, or I’m sure any other editor:

    Find all


    I’m talking about a site-wide search, like if you had 15-30 pages.


    I don’t believe there is any tool that will do this for you, besides downloading the site and using your code editor to do a search of all the files within your project. Dreamweaver can do this, Coda, Textmate, etc.

    Alternately, you can use Firebug to search for the "#" character, or "href="#"" if you would prefer (just use the search bar in the upper right of the FIrebug window) but I don’t believe you can search multiple files at once. You’d have to do it one page at a time.


    Falken, he’s talking about a local site though.

    Sorry for taking a while to get back to this!

    If you have Dreamweaver (please confirm!) it’s very simple to do exactly what I said.

    Simply select the directory of the site (in DW), then Ctrl-F, type in href="#, then "Find All" (or Alt-L).

    I do this constantly for site wide searches on sites that are 2,000+ pages.


    I’m using Coda. I’ll probably try this same technique and see if it works in Coda as well.


    Sorry, missed your comment about it being a local site. Yes, Coda can do this.

    — Hit Command-F to bring up the find dialog
    — Make sure to check the "find in" checkbox in the left files column
    — specify what you are looking for in the first "find" input box
    — Hit the "find" button just below the "find" input box

    I use this quite often myself.
