How to make “Remove links” option selected by default on “Breaking Links” Sitecore dialog

There are many deletion activities on a certain Sitecore instance and the Breaking Links dialog is displayed all the time. Certainly, the users are lazy as us so we will get this message very soon: “We are always using Remove links as if not the link will become broken. We want to keep that as default option.”

Oh yeah, Happy Client Happy Life!

Let’s make “Remove links” option selected by default

We can easily display “Breaking Links” dialog by using SIM to setup a Sitecore 8.2 instance and then log into Sitecore + delete the default Home item

^^ Notice that there is a Sitecore control BreakingLinks under “/sitecore/shell” folder so let’s search it out ^^

↓↓ Have a quick check on \sitecore\shell\Applications\Links\BreakingLinks\BreakingLinks.xml, we can see that it’s easy to achieve the requirement above by editing BreakingLinks.xml directly ↓↓

So far so good 😀

Happy Sitecore Playing!
