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 report 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. See also the File Options topic and note about deleting old report files.

Scripts to add to the end of HTML report pages - Specify a list of scripts (URLs only; no tags) to add to the end of HTML report pages immediately before the </body> tag. Such scripts are intended to add additional functionality to the report when viewed in a compatible browser. Specify only the string "(default)" to use the default script(s). Specify an empty string to disable this feature and not add any scripts. The default when "(default)" is specified is "https://www.htmlvalidator.com/wizard/js/standardoptions.js" which will add <script src="https://www.htmlvalidator.com/wizard/js/standardoptions.js"></script> to the end of HTML report pages. The default script adds options to the report pages for dynamically showing and hiding different message types. (New v16.02)

External CSS file - Specify an optional 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.

User functions files - Specify one or more optional ".cfg" files (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 Batch Wizard Event Functions topic page for more information about the functions that can be specified in this file. In v15+, multiple files separated by semicolons may be specified. By default, no file is specified and this option is blank. (New v12.00)

Report footer - Specify the footer (which should include full path information) that should be used for the currently active (open) target list when generating HTML (not XML) reports. Specifying a footer filename here will override the HTML report footer file 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.

VEO file - Specify an optional VEO (validator engine options) file. When this is set, a new configuration handle is created based on the last saved validator engine options, then the VEO file is loaded. Any options specified in the VEO file will override the last saved options. This option allows for different validator engine user functions files for each target list, as well as other validator engine settings that may be desirable only for specific target lists. See also the Import/Export Options topic for how to export the validator engine options to a VEO file. (New v15.9901)

Other Options

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\*. 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. 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)

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*. 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. 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)

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: 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. NOTE: Do not surround the semicolons by extra spaces. Extra spaces are considered part of the string.
