This page describes for advanced eValid users how to fine-tune the Search With Limitations section of the eValid Site Analysis Preferences Menu.
|Subject & Examples||Detailed Explanation|
"," (comma) is the delimiter.
Blanks after ","'s are OK, but otherwise not.
? means to process the field as a string-match inside the query field; eValid presumes either a ? or & in the query string searched.
You can have any number of entries in the field.
In the explanations below, BASE_URL is the URL at which you are starting your eValid SiteMap analysis. This is the value that shows in the Site/Subsite To Search in the eValid SiteMap Preferences Menu.
htm, html, jpg, jpeg, gif
jpg, jpeg, gif
Any URL that begins with the BASE_URL and ends in the given extension will be included.
Note, for example, that:
|?name=value||This means that URLs that have the string ?name=value or &name=value in the query string will be included.|
This means that URLs that have the string ?name
or "&name" in the query string will be included.
Note for example that ?name won't match except on the left hand side of the name/value pair.
|This means that URLs that have the string name=value in the query string will be included, as will any URL's that have the form BASE_URL...*gif.|
|?name1=value1,?name2=value2,gif||This means that URLs that have the string name1=value1 or the string name2=value2 in the query string will be included, as will any URL's that have the form BASE_URL...*gif.|
