CSE HTML Validator: The All-In-One HTML, XHTML, CSS, Link, SEO, and Accessibility Checker
Check Entire Websites with the Batch Wizard
The CSE HTML Validator Batch Wizard lets you check entire websites for proper HTML & CSS syntax, spelling, SEO (search engine optimization), broken links, and more.
Simply launch the Batch Wizard from CSE HTML Validator by pressing F2 (or choosing Tools->Batch Wizard) and create a list of targets that you want to process (i.e. validate). Targets can be URLs, files, or folders. Set the Batch Wizard to do what you want to do (validate, spell check, link check, etc) and then run the job to process the targets and generate the report.
Reports are created in HTML format and can be easily viewed in any modern web browser.
URLs can be followed and websites can be "spidered" or "crawled" with depth limit control and other limits. For example, to check an entire website:
Add the website's root URL as a target. Example: http://www.mydomain.com/
Answer 'Yes' when asked if you want to spider (crawl) the target.
Confirm the depth limit setting in the dialog that appears. It defaults to -1 for no depth limit.
Confirm the 'Limit to' string so if your website links to another website, the Batch Wizard won't start crawling that site as well (but it will make sure the link is valid if link checking is enabled). In this example the 'limit to' setting would default to: http://www.mydomain.com/
Finally, change any validation and link checking options that you want to change and then run the Batch Wizard job to start crawling the target and generating the HTML report.
The validation is also very configurable. For example, you can generate your own custom validation messages to find specific issues unique to your website or you can generate a custom CSV (comma separated value) file with the validation results (or almost anything else about the validated documents). For more information about the possibilities, see the TNPL Scripting language documentation (new window). If you have any questions then just ask us.
Validate an entire site, or part of a site, given one URL.
Check the links of an entire site, or part of a site, given one URL.
Sites can be checked with various "tools", like the "validator" tool, the "link check" tool for only link checking, or the "spell check" tool.
When choosing to use the "validator" tool, you can also choose from "full" validation, "errors only", "errors and warnings only", "accessibility messages only", "search engine messages only", or other available validation type.
If desired, you can supply your own customized report footer and CSS file to customize the report to your liking.
Use the command line processor to launch Batch Wizard jobs automatically or from automated scripts. The Windows Task Scheduler can also be used to launch jobs and create reports.
Multi-threaded for fast performance.
XML output is available in the enterprise edition. The enterprise edition also supports advanced customization capability and posting to URLs.
