I really am confused and need help from you guys :(

Actually, I have a portal in which I am using some BANNERS, to navigate to other sites.

What I want is to validate if the link is working or not.
Can you plz tell me about a site or tool that will help me solve this problem?

Thanks rcjordan, but Does it check the action of FORM i.e,

If I am using:
<FORM action ="www.Somedomain.com/foldername/filename.Ext">

Will XENU check if the url "www.Somedomain.com/foldername/filename.Ext" exists or not?

If you have all your URL's you wish to check (even the form based navigation ones) just wack'em on a webpage and run xenu over them.

I don't know of any program that fills out forms...

I still am unable to validate the action of the form using "XENU".

Is there something else to solve the problem.

Dreamweaver has an utility that checks all in site links.
I don't know if it's you're looking for.

Thanks Gus_R for your reply but dreamweaver just CHECKS links if they are broken or not. It does not validate the action of form.

I think this problem should be taken seriously and requires solution as soon as possible.

Till then I will validate the form by submitting it manually
