Kentico Xperience 13 documentation and ASP.NET Core

Most documentation about running Xperience applications under ASP.NET Core can be found in a dedicated section: Developing Xperience applications using ASP.NET Core. The rest of the documentation still applies, but some code samples and scenarios might need slight modifications for Core projects.

Certain pages allow you to switch between Core and MVC 5 content using a selector located under the page heading.

All major differences between the MVC 5 and Core platforms are summarized in Migrating to ASP.NET Core.


Validating links

The system allows you to check pages for broken links. Only links within <a>, <img>, <script> and <link> elements are validated by the link checker.

  1. Open the Pages application.
  2. Select a page in the content tree.
  3. Switch to the Preview mode.
  4. Open the Validate -> Link checker tab.
  5. Click Validate.

Checking links in the Pages application

If the validator finds broken links on the page, you can view the following information for each detected issue:

  • Status code - the HTML status code returned when the link is accessed. Statuses of redirected links are shown for each page within the redirection.
  • Type - W for links redirected to a different location (301 status code), E for broken links (404 status code).
  • Error message - details about the link issue.
  • URL - URL to which the link is pointing.
  • Request time - time elapsed between sending a request to the link and receiving a response.
