    What if I get error 403 forbidden for external website links in my posts? When I checked them manually, they are accessible. What can I do to get them off the reports in Website Auditor? Thanks

    Aldin Lapinig, Very often external resources obey the same rules as internal resources on your website: they may block you due to excessive querying or if JavaScript is disabled. I recommend you to follow the same steps as described in this article.

    As a second option you may check what is the real status code that these external recourses return. A recourse may be open and visible in your external browser, yet the response code may return a 403 Forbidden message. I recommend you to check the actual response status code with browser via Developers Tools.
