Link Validation

Check that all your links are working and going to the right pages

Link validation checks that all your links are working and going to the right pages. Access the Link Validator by clicking the Links button in the bottom right corner. Parcel will attempt to connect to each link you have in your HTML and tell you if the connection is secure/successful. If the button says In Sync, then the validation results match the code. If you make code changes, the button will change to Refresh. Click Refresh to run the validator check again.

Silent video of the full Parcel window. A sample email is displayed in the editor and the preview. Under the Preview are several buttons, including one labeled "Links". The user clicks on this, which expands to a mini window with a button labeled "Validate" and the text "Check that all your links are working and going to the right pages". The user clicks the validate button, which is replaced with a list of links found in the email. The top of this mini window lists "1 valid, 1 error, 10 warnings", and has a button labeled "In Sync". Below is a list of links, each with a status code and security status (secure/insecure). The user clicks and drags the top edge of the window to stretch it to a taller height. Valid links are listed with a green check icon. Insecure links are listed with a yellow exclamation point icon, and broken links are listed in red with a red exclamation point. The user types some new text on a line in the editor, and the "In Sync" button changes to "Refresh". The user clicks the "Refresh" button and the link list re-updates.

Clicking on any link in the validator will open that link in a new tab. Multiple identical instances of the same link will only show up once in the results.
