    Script to remove dead links?

    Hello,
    I just found a great list of thousand sites with usefull info for me...
    But the problem is, the list is 2 years old... so a lot of sites are offline already...

    Is there a site/script so I can check if the site is online or not?

    Here's a quick cheat:

    1. Paste the list into vBulletin.
    2. Preview your post.

    vBulletin's "Automatically parse links in text" and "Automatically retrieve titles from external links" features will work together to retrieve the <title> tags from each URL.

    The URL's which end up without title tags are probably offline.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory

    Really nice idea there Will. I was going to say to create a PHP code to do it, but that's much easier

    Too bad it keeps loading if I try to preview a reply with these links:

    That's a big list! But here's a better one: List of Article Directories (500+) - Articles Submission Service
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
