Target List Options Tab
(tick_24Pro, cross_24Std, cross_24Lite)

This is where you can change options that are specific to a particular Batch Wizard target list. With some options, default values can be overridden for a specific target list. Changing options here will affect only the currently active (open) target list and will not affect any other target lists.

File Options

HTML report filename (root page) - Specify the root page (which should include full path information) of the HTML report that will be generated. Specifying a report filename here will override the default report filename in the Batch Wizard Options for the currently active target list only.

Use external CSS file to change look - Specify the CSS file (which should include full path information) to use for the HTML report that will be generated. Specifying a CSS file here will override the default CSS file in the Batch Wizard Options for the currently active target list only.

HTML report footer filename - Specify the footer (which should include full path information) that should be used for the currently active (open) target list. Specifying a footer filename here will override the general footer specified in the Batch Wizard Options. Remember that any footer specified here (or any other option in this tab) applies only to the currently active (open) target list. See also the Custom Report Footer topic.

User functions file - Specify an optional ".cfg" file (which is a plain text file with UTF-8 encoding) with user-defined Batch Wizard event functions (not validator engine event functions) that can provide advanced customization. See the Special Functions topic page for more information about the functions that can be specified in this file. By default, no file is specified and this option is blank. (New v12.00)

Other Options

Don't process these targets - Specify a list of strings, separated by semicolons. If a target matches one of these strings then it is not processed (a case-insensitive compare is performed). The full target URL or, if a file target, the full path and filename (like c:\html\index.html) is used in the comparison. This allows you to exclude certain folders or documents from being processed for the currently active target list only. The wildcard character "*" (an asterisk) may be used at the beginning and/or end of each string. For example, to exclude all documents in a specific folder or directory, specify http://www.domain.com/directory/* or */directory/* or *\directory\*. To exclude all documents named donotvalidate.html, specify *donotvalidate.html. NOTE: Do not surround the semicolons by extra spaces. Extra spaces are considered part of the string.

Process ONLY these targets - Specify a list of strings, separated by semicolons. If any strings are specified, then all targets must match one or more of these strings to be processed (a case-insensitive compare is performed) with the exception of targets in the initial target list. The full target URL or, if a file target, the full path and filename (like c:\html\index.html) is used in the comparison. This allows you to only check/process certain folders or documents for the currently active target list only. The wildcard character "*" (an asterisk) may be used at the beginning and/or end of each string. For example, to only process documents in a specific folder or directory, specify http://www.domain.com/directory/* or */directory/* or *\directory\*. To only process all documents named validateme.html, specify *validateme.html. If a target matches "Process ONLY these targets" and "Don't process these targets" then it is not processed. NOTE: Do not surround the semicolons by extra spaces. Extra spaces are considered part of the string. (New v9.00)

NOTE: If strings are specified in both Don't process these targets and Process ONLY these targets, then a target is processed only if it matches a string specified in Process ONLY these targets AND does not match a string specified in Don't process these targets.

Don't check these links - Specify a list of strings, separated by semicolons. If a link (after being changed to an absolute link) matches one of these strings then it is not checked by the link checker and does not appear in the link check results. This allows you to exclude certain links from being checked for the currently active target list only. The wildcard character "*" (an asterisk) may be used at the beginning and/or end of each string. For example, to exclude checking links in a specific folder or directory, specify http://www.domain.com/directory/* or */directory/* or *\directory\*. This option has no effect if link checking is not enabled. This option only affects link checking, not target processing. NOTE: Do not surround the semicolons by extra spaces. Extra spaces are considered part of the string.

Check ONLY these link - Specify a list of strings, separated by semicolons. If a link (after being changed to an absolute link) does not match one of these strings then it is not checked by the link checker and does not appear in the link check results. This allows you to include only certain links to check for the currently active target list only. The wildcard character "*" (an asterisk) may be used at the beginning and/or end of each string. For example, to only check links for a specific domain, specify *domain.com*. This option has no effect if link checking is not enabled. This option only affects link checking, not target processing. NOTE: Do not surround the semicolons by extra spaces. Extra spaces are considered part of the string. (New v8.00)

NOTE: If strings are specified in both Don't check these links and Check ONLY these links, then a link is checked only if it matches a string specified in Check ONLY these links AND does not match a string specified in Don't check these links. Also, note that link checking has to be enabled for these options to work.

NOTE: The status of some link checks may show that a link is good or bad even when you may not expect this to show because of the Don't check these links or Check ONLY these links option. This may be because the link was previously checked during a different job and is stored in the link cache. If this is the case and you don't want this to happen, then be sure to clear the link cache before processing a target list or to exit CSE HTML Validator and reload it (this will also clear the link cache).

Targets matching these strings are case-insensitive - Specify a list of strings, separated by semicolons. This overrides the default value if it is anything other than an empty string. If a target matches one of these strings then it is compared to other targets with a case-insensitive compare. This allows one to specify servers that are case-insensitive. The wildcard character "*" (an asterisk) may be used at the beginning and/or end of each string. For example, if the server "www.domain.com" is a Microsoft Windows server and is case-insensitive, then specify http://www.domain.com/* or *www.domain.com* so that the Batch Wizard knows that http://www.domain.com/page.html is the same document as http://www.domain.com/PAGE.HTML. This will prevent the Batch Wizard from checking the same document twice. Specify only "*" (without the quotes) to compare all targets case-insensitively. NOTE: Do not surround the semicolons by extra spaces. Extra spaces are considered part of the string.
