Lesson 7. Accessibility and Testing > Checking for Orphaned Files

Checking for Orphaned Files

In the process of creating a Web site, you build new files as well as revise and replace old ones. Throughout the development phase, you may develop multiple versions of certain files or end up disregarding other files entirely. An orphaned file is one that is included with the site files, but which is not used on your site. These may be HTML files that have no links pointing to them, or images that haven't been used on any pages.

1.
In the Site window, select the local root folder for your project Web site.

In order to run an Orphaned files report, you must first run a link check on the entire site.

2.
In the Link Checker tab of the Results dialog box, choose Broken Links from the Show drop-down menu and click the Check Links icon (the green arrow) for a drop-down menu. Choose Check Links for entire site.

A larger list will appear in the dialog box.

3.
From the Show drop-down menu, choose Orphaned Files.

A list of orphaned files appears in the dialog box.
