            Bug ID: 23716
           Summary: online link checker has unpublished limit of number of
                    links checked on a page?
           Product: LinkChecker
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: documentation
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org
          Reporter: gepearson2002@yahoo.com
        QA Contact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

On a web page with 586 links (!), only 132 were checked.

Though I use link checker every few months to check this page, someone just
pointed out to me that the page had a number of bad links.  The w3 checker
missed most of them, but another free checker found them.  I determined the
number checked by w3 by counting the "checking" entries in the scrolling
results window.

So this is EITHER a bug in link checker OR a failure of the link checker web
page to announce there is a limit on the number of checked links.

Unfortunately, this problem means that for YEARS I have had a web page with
many bad links of which I was unaware.
