Wayback Machine Plugin for ALL old/dead outbound links on a website?
March 6, 2009 1:19 AM Subscribe
My old website still gets a lot of hits. But many of the outbound links I posted years back are no longer valid, are dead or have changed location. Is there any way to integrate the Wayback Machine Internet Archive
into my site's code so that links are redirected to the archive for the date they were originally posted?

Ideally I would like an integrated plugin that directed old outbound links to their archived page on Wayback automatically. It would be great if visitors to the site hardly even knew their click had been redirected. I would like to implement it site-wide, so that either:
1. All outbound links were directed to the original date they were posted, or
2. If links are dead then the plugin kicks in and directs to the wayback archive, or
3. The plugin places a Wayback version of each link next to the original (something like: Original Link
(My site is a self-hosted blogger blog - the old version - if that makes a difference...)
Is there a way?
