Fixing broken hyperlinks

  1. Switch to the Reports view. You should see the Site Summary report displayed - if not, select View > Reports > Site Summary.

  2. Click the Broken Hyperlinks report. Note: if you rename a file from within FrontPage as our best practice guidance suggests, FrontPage will automatically update any links that might be broken as a result.

  1. Unverified hyperlinks are links to pages outside of your FrontPage Web, either on the LSE Web server or other internet addresses.

    To validate the unknown links click the Verify Hyperlinks icon represented by a link with a red tick underneath.

  2. When the Verify Hyperlinks window appears, click the Start button.

    FrontPage will now visit each link and report back if there is a page at the address specified. If you look along the status bar at the bottom of the window you will see the number of broken internal and broken external hyperlinks.  Click on the Status bar to sort the list so that the broken links all appear at the top of the screen.

  1. Right-click the broken hyperlink and select Edit Page. The page will open in the Page view with the broken link already selected.

  2. Click the Hyperlink icon as before when creating a hyperlink.

  3. When the Edit Hyperlink icon appears, create a hyperlink in the usual way by selecting the correct page if the link points to one of your Web pages or paste the correct address from the browser if the link goes to an address beyond your pages.

  4. Click OK and save the page.
