Project description



It’s important, that this package isn’t started by conjob in non productive deployments. This is due to the fact, that the command is started by a zope ctl command.


Plone 4.3.x


  • Add the package to your buildout configuration:

eggs +=

One needs to add a config file (e.g. linkchecker_config.json) holding:

  • portal path (unique identifier of the platform)

  • emails of the platforms administrator (the ones who gets the report)

  • base URI (domain where the platform is configured)

  • timeout in seconds (how long the script waits for each external link before continuing if the page does not respond).

  • upload_location can be left empty. It is the path to a file listing block where the report will be uploaded.

  "/portal/path-one": {
    "email": ["", ""],
    "base_uri": "",
    "timeout_config": "1",
    "upload_location": "/content_page/my_file_listing_block"
  "/portal/path-two": {
    "email": [""],
    "base_uri": "",
    "timeout_config": "1"


The linkchecker can be started with (–log logpath optional):

bin/instance check_links --config path/to/config/file.json --log path/to/logfile.log
