How to Filter Links When Initially Scanning Files

In using LinkFixer Advanced, you may have noticed that there seems to be no obvious option to filter links when initially scanning files. However, there is a quick and easy way to do this! If you need to filter (inclusive or exclusive) links in your reports, you can accomplish this quickly and easily by doing the following steps:

1. After doing your scan, select the “Create Report” tab.

2. Choose the type of report you wish to run (either Regular, Cross-Reference, or Broken Links report).

3. Once you have selected the type of report,  you will see that you can deploy filters. This is where the program presents filters for filtering types of files, and filters for filtering links. You can control what types of links you wish to include or exclude in your reporting. You make your selection based simply upon the type of file being linked to.
