Deleted external links are still shown on Special:LinkSearch

I buildt a "link system" on my wikis. External links are added in a special namespace and then integrated into articles by tagging this links.

Now, if we remove a link the site Special:LinkSearch still claims that this link exists on all articles, where this link was integrated into. The problem is Special:RottenLinks shows those deleted links too.

Is this a bug?

I can fix the errors by running Manual:refreshLinks.php but this script takes about 1 hour to run...

Those tables get updated asynchronously via the Job queue. Have you tried waiting, or setting a cron job or continious process to process the job queue ?

Thanks for your reply. It's been one week and the deleted link still shows up on Special:LinkSearch. The job queue is empty...

I think I will set up a cronjob with runJobs.php anyway. Is it enough to run it once a day?

Every hour is reasonable generally. You might also want to follow the debug log and see if you might be hitting any errors anywhere.
