When a project (or a profile) page has a lot of links (URLs) to other places, particularly to off-Geni sites, those URLs might get 'stale'. That is, the remote site may have changed it's structure a bit and the Geni-stored link may no longer point to a valid (external) Web page.
Does anyone know of a simple-to-use tool that will scan the "currently-viewed" page and check each link found on the page to be sure it points to a "valid" place?
I know the definition of 'valid' is a little nebulous, but at the very least it should be able to flag simple "not found" errors (e.g.: where the parent site is valid, but the particular page is no longer where it was).
I think the W3C link Checker might be helpful for what you are trying to do:
