Manage links in CMS

P: n/a
Hi there,

I am building an application that basically consists of 2 sections, a
download list of over 1000 articles and then a content side to the
website, however the author of the content would like to include links
to these downloads in various places amongst the text, no real
problems there, however what i need to manage is that if a download is
removed or its title updated then all pages in the database that have
a link to this download are updated/deleted..

Basically i am after some advice on a professional way to tackle this
problem ad solve it in the most effective way, any advice most
appreciated..

Cheers
Anthony

What do you think about

1) when link is updated/deleted look for its title/url in the content
and update it, if found
2) refer to to the link through intermediate aspx (e.g. link.aspx?
id=123) and when the final link is not found, send a message to the
author and display an error
