Element Location will assist with locating the code that needs adjustment.

If the issue is not highlighting on the webpage when selected, please see our FAQ article about issue highlighting.

The user role dictates whether the user will see the Ignore Issue option and whether the user will have the additional options to Ignore Issue for the page, site, or full account.

Best Practices panel

The Best Practices panel is similar to the Accessibility panel options. Please note that while Best Practices may be related to Accessibility. The Best Practices do not factor into the Accessibility score. Best Practices do not mean that an accessibility issue is introduced using code. The Best Practice indicates that a technique should be adopted to make your website more accessible.

Broken Links panel

The Broken Links panel displays what links were reported broken for a webpage. Each Broken Link will provide what the error status was for a reported link. Note that a 404 error is a truly broken link.

Other status codes could be an indication of something other than a real broken link. For instance, a 429 status indicates that a web server stopped allowing DubBot to access a URL check for the web domain because it throttles traffic from a single browser over a certain amount of time.

Depending on a user's role, a Broken Link can be ignored for a Page, Site, or Account.

If you notice an issue for a link or set of links that are not actually broken, the specific broken link or a regular expression for ignoring a set of links should be added to Settings > Links. For further assistance configuring this setting, contact DubBot support via the Chat icon, make a Task and assign it to @DubBot Support, or email help@dubbot.com.
