HI Christian,

   If the page contains multiple links, it becomes difficult to spot the broken link.

Yes, the link-checker is rather fragile in the sense that when it
encounters something it doesn't expect, it will have

But on pages where there really are broken links, the corresponding
link will be highlighted with a red background in the editor.

We tried looking for such indications, but cannot see such links at all.
Can you have a look at the "Broken links" report at SS and revert? Thanks in advance.

When using the editor to create links, you shouldn't be able to create
broken links. Broken links can occur however when you delete images
from asset or delete pages.

Just by moving pages around/renaming them, or moving images in assets
to another folder, the links won't break.

David and I discussed this. He tells me he has not done anything that causes broken links.
I have restricted my operations to entering content in existing pages.
A third person could have done that. 
But how to detect that? That's the question!
Note that the link-checker also doesn't verify external links, only
links within the CMS.

I used a link-checker application from my desktop.
It does check external links (as an option), which I turned off.
So both SilverStripe and my tool (Xenu) are looking for broken links in the same domain.
