What It Does

AC.webcheck maps and checks your website (and others!) for incorrect ("dangling") links and unused files. It displays the result in a file tree ("explorer view"), showing you at once were problems occur and making it easy to drill down to the erroneous document.

Context functions (right click on an object) provide useful shortcuts for often needed operations. Call up lists of referrers and links for each HTML document. Navigate easily to referrers and targets of links. Call up a browser or an editor for a document, a referrer, or a link target.

AC.webcheck shows you, too, how much space single files and whole directory trees consume. Where is your web site getting fat? Are there any files that are not linked to by any page, and could be removed ("dead wood")?

AC.webcheck works on local files that are directly accessed by your webserver, or will be uploaded to a remote location (in example, when your web pages are hosted by a provider. AC.webcheck works as well on "live" websites which can be accessed over the Internet.

What It Needs

Java AC.webcheck runs on any platform (Windows, Linux, Apple, any!) because it is written in Java. Java usually will be allready installed on your system. In the case it is not (shame on the manufacturer!), the Java Run Time Environment (JRE version 1.4 or higher) can be downloaded from Sun. Just select the JRE for your operating system. It's not too big, and it's well worth the effort ;-).

What It Costs

Price and distribution model has not been decided yet


AC.webcheck can be plugged into AC.log Pro, a professional web log analyser. What do you get from the combination?

  • Display the number of views, hits, volume in explorer view
  • View tallies per file and for whole directory trees
  • Drill down to areas of the web site you are interested in - no more limit to the "Top 20"
  • Monitor pages with web access errors and the directories they are located in (in example, file not found, authorization failure)
  • See which pages and directory trees are never accessed
  • Check which pages and directories are hit without a link (in example, through bookmarking, deep linking)
