Exclusions Tab
(tick_24Pro, cross_24Std, cross_24Lite)

This is where you can change the exclusion options that are specific to a particular Batch Wizard target list. Changing options here will affect only the currently active (open) target list and will not affect any other target lists.

Exclusion 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. NOTE: In v15.00 and above, you can leave off both the beginning asterisk and the ending asterisk and it will match as though both asterisks were present.
 
For example, to exclude all documents in a specific folder or directory using the forward slash character, specify http://www.domain.com/directory/* or */directory/* or /directory/ or, for local file targets using the backslash character, *\directory\* or \directory\. To exclude all targets ending in donotvalidate.html, specify *donotvalidate.html.

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. This option only affects link checking, not target processing. NOTE: In v15.00 and above, you can leave off both the beginning asterisk and the ending asterisk and it will match as though both asterisks were present. This option has no effect if link checking is not enabled.
 
For example, to exclude checking links in a specific folder or directory, specify http://www.domain.com/directory/* or */directory/* or *\directory\*.

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).
