wdsi_not_in_pool in Broken Link Checker

wdsi_not_in_pool is shown as a post status in broken link checker and I am not sure what it actually is. I am assuming it has something to do with the plugin Slide In because the only "pool" is in this plugin. Any ideas what I should tell broken link checker to do with this status?

    Hey there Zach,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums

    You are right its the Slide in Plugin however I don't think those broken links would cause any issue.

    The reason of them being shown as broken is that we can not view a slide in as an individual post however I am going to bring our lead developer @Vladislav in here to see if there is something he can do about it in the future releases.

    He should be here sooner than later.

    Cheers, PC

    You were totally right in your assessment - this is indeed an internal status assigned by the Slide In plugin. It is being used in figuring out which slide-in messages to pull out (i.e. are they assigned to a post or are they free to be considered for filling in the "pool" according to current conditions). As far as the broken link checking goes, if it has a means of ignoring posts with such status, that would probably be the way to go.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
