A project for the RottenLinks extension being developed to easily make the detection and management of dead links easier.

Well there has been no progress on this in a while. I do agree that the table is way too large for some links.

@John I am not sure how exactly the resolution is meant to work. After upgrading to latest master this test wiki still only shows the status description and not the status code together with the description.
However this was an appealing feature. I liked it. No worries, one day there will be a solution. Admittedly the respective wiki I use for testing holds about 23,000 external links in total which is intense.

Removed feature, super inefficient SQL wise within MediaWiki.

@Rob_Kam I believe this should be opened as a separate issue. Anyways I cannot confirm this for the wiki I am using it for.
Submit 500 items per page it changes okay. Then click next page and it's back at 25. Change again to 500 puts it back to the start page of the list.

I agree, imho not as a default, probably as a upo or via a configuration parameter.
Yeah, colouring links by some sort of priority will be nice but imho not utmost important.
I'd rather like to click through many pages than seeing a huge bunch of pages at a time. Imho scrolling down is far worse. Being able to select the number of links to be shown on a page e.g. via a configuration parameter is a way out here.

You may need to create MediaWiki:Rottenlinks-showbad on your wiki to whatever the default value should be, or whatever value you want.
You may need to create MediaWiki:Rottenlinks-showbad on your wiki to whatever the default value should be, or whatever value you want. Sometimes messages defined by custom extensions or recently installed/enabled extensions don’t always show up in Special:AllMessages just from my experience.
IMHO this should be either a user preference option or a local wiki ManageWiki option - shouldn’t be hard coded in the extension and be “mandatory” for say.
