Can eValid visit URL pages not visible

Postby RobGen » Thu Nov 24, 2016 4:15 pm

Hello.

In site analysis will the eValid web engine visit URLs on the page that are not visible to the user?

Thanks

Thanks for asking RobGen.

The thing to remember here is that site analysis is done by dynamically analyzing the contents of the DOM to figure out what links are to be visited.

The site analysis controller inside eValid keeps track of which URLs to visit, avoids visiting anything twice, and records all the data.

The way it finds URLs to visit is by scanning the current HTML stored in the browser DOM.

It doesn't make any difference if the URL is displayed on the page or not.

The URL scanner finds the link because it is in the HTML sent to the browser.

Here is the manual page that shows how to select various options for the site analysis engine to use:
