This is where logging options are set.

Logging can be useful if you want to drag and drop your whole website onto the Drag and Drop Window and then find out which documents may contain problems without going through each individual validation report. By viewing the log (which is one file), you can quickly determine which documents need attention and which do not.

Logging also works any time a document is validated, including when it is validated using the Batch Wizard or using the editor.

NOTE: If you keep logging enabled and do not occasionally delete the log file, then the log file can become very large. Be careful not to turn enable logging and then forget about it.

Logging Options

Enable logging - If you want to turn on logging, check this box. A summary of the validation results of all HTML documents that are validated when logging is enabled will be logged to the log file. This option is not enabled by default.

Log error messages - Check this box if you want the log file to include the actual error messages that are generated by the validations. This option is not enabled by default.

Log warning messages - Check this box if you want the log file to include the actual warning messages that are generated by the validations. This option is not enabled by default.

Include source lines containing errors and/or warnings for logged messages - Check this box if you want the log file to include the lines from a source document that generated an error or warning message. You must also check Log error messages or Log warning messages for the lines to be logged because a source line is not logged if the corresponding warning or error message is not also logged. This option is enabled by default.

Log reports to filename - Specify the filename with full path that is used to log the results of validations if logging has been enabled. If logging is enabled, then validating a document will cause a validation results summary to be appended to this log file.
