Great Tool, But...
« on: January 09, 2006, 05:06:10 PM »
Great tool, should save me a lot of time, if I can get it working.

Here is my problem.  Your tool does not allow for forward slashes in a url string after the ?.

ie, I commonly have pages that look like this:
http://alabama.nationwideshelving.com/pages.php?article=shelving_storage_products/shelving_by_industry/medical_record_storage/



Your script finds this page just fine, but then it assumes that the first forward slash is the current folder, and that all links are relative so that I end up with it thinking that links should be to pages like:
http://alabama.nationwideshelving.com/pages.php?article=shelving_storage_products/shelving_by_industry/medical_record_storage/pages.php?article=/sms/space_management_simulator.php

instead of :
http://alabama.nationwideshelving.com/pages.php?article=/sms/space_management_simulator.php

The actual html link is as follows:
<a href="pages.php?article=/sms/space_management_simulator.php">


I wish I could simply add a forward slash infront of the link making it <a href="/pages.php?article=/sms/space_management_simulator.php"> which I am sure would solve the issue, but I can't for reasons that would take me a lot of space to explain.

I need your script to look back to the actual current directory, and not simply assume that the first forward slash is the current directory. 

Hopefully this makes sense.

Again, a great tool, I realize my case is something you probably didn't anticipate, but I am sure there are others who have a similiar case.  I would edit the script myself, but you have made it uneditable.  Any help is appreciated.

Hello Hiram,

do you use Online Generator? If so, please try it again now - the code was just slightly modified. :)
Thank you for reporting!

I'm sorry, I just realized I posted in the wrong section.  I actually use the php version, which I installed on my own server.  Could you send me the modified code?  Thank you very much for your help.

Incidentally, I just tried the online generator, and it works great.  Thanx for the changes.  My site has many times more than the limit of 500 pages though, so if I can get the updated source code that would be wonderful.

Thanks again.

Hello Hiram,

you can download the script again now using the same link you have in automated email.
Let me know if that works ok now :)
