checking links

I have this feature for testing to make sure all the links are correct, however it won't work with the menu. Of course it checks the html page for the href etc. Is there some program out there that will check the links in the menu or do I have to just hand check all of them on the web?

Far as I know, you will have to hand check them. Until the menu is actually rendered the hyperlinks are non-existant. And once the page is, for some reason I also cannot get a list of them either. I use a tool called IEBooster (awesome product by the way) that lets me see all hyperlinks on a page as well as the HTML source AS ITS BEING VIEWED among a bunch of other things. Kinda cool. I would say click on them all. Sorry. :?

On the Todo list is now a menu link checker.

Should have something soon, shouldn't be too difficult.

Sounds great, Andy. I have the same problem with my link checker. This is a needed item.

on a subject related to this, could right-clicking menu links bring up the normal context menu for links? i it's nice to be able to open new windows/tabs or copy link locations without having to visit the page, and i'm not able to do either of these in any browser i've tested it on (netscape, ie, firebird).

[note: it needs to be friday, i swear. my apologies, andy and hergio, for shooting off the wrong request without making sure i was saying what i had meant to say.
original text: on a subject related to this, would it be possible to allow the status bar to show the link location when you're hovering? i think it's really nice to be able to see where a web site wants to take you before you click on it.]

I should already be doing that for you. I know as I am looking at the milonic homepage on my IE 6, when I hover over menu items, the status bar shows me where the link points. You can also override this and have it show a custom string of text (see quick reference guides).
