SiteChecker gave https://docs.sencha.com 36/100 and only crawled 6 pages (https://sitechecker.pro/tool/crawl-report-domain/?id=222498).

Rather than users waste their time reporting on broken/incorrect links that might not be read for a month, get some software to do the task.

I know $97 per month (https://sitechecker.pro/account/plans/) may be a lot to ask, but there may be cheaper versions out there.

Here is a link to other possibilities.

I am happy to put some money on a gofundme campaign if you need it.

I'd be surprised if a tool like that would work at all the way the docs are built. As links are programmatic, I'd say most (99% are false positives)...

The only reason I normally find broken links are due to copy/paste of docs from one major version to another where something has been depreciated / removed.
