Hello XML-Sitemap creators,
I have tried your free tool to crawl my site and want to purchase your stand alone tool.
However, I need to know answer to the following 2 questions, please.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
In scanning my sites - there are internal links that allow the surfer/site visitor to select various styles to change the color scheme of my site to best suit their viewing needs. Also I include a print to PDF and E-mail to
a friend button on my content pages.
The links to the style sheet switch, pdf creation and e-mail to a friend are not items I want to include in the site map.
Using your free tool on this site I created a site map and then loaded it into notepad to remove URLs to the items I did not want listed (mentioned above). This took a few minutes.
My real question comes from: using the automated script you have as a standalone product -(1) is there a way to tell the script some identifiable information about certain links that have certain words in a url - which I can chose to exclude from the site map automatic creation? For instance - does the script allow me to put an exclusion statement in a rule set to not include any URLs with %PDF% or %EMTF%?
(2) Can it also remove all statements from URLs with actions? So, URL: [external links are visible to admins only] would be included in the site map as [external links are visible to admins only] (which strips everything on the URL after the ?)
