Ignore updates

Top  Previous  Next

The "Ignore updates" feature allows you to

 

1.Prevent an update notification when a page contains a certain pre-defined text (blacklist mode), or
2.Only allow an update notification when a page contains a certain pre-defined text (whitelist mode)

 

Typical example: Page shows certain error message

If a page regularly displays a certain error message, you can prevent false update notifications when such a message appears. Typical examples for such error messages are "Too many users online, please try again later" or "Could not connect to database".

 

1.Open bookmark properties
2.Select the "Advanced" tab
3.Select "Ignore Updates" on the left side
4.Enter the text for which WebSite-Watcher should prevent an update notification (one phrase per line)

If a black listed word is found in the page, then WebSite-Watcher will (1) list this bookmark in the error folder and (2) alert an update after the configured number of errors in a row. This behavior can be prevented with the program Tweak "HandleIgnoreUpdateAsError=0", then WebSite-Watcher will ignore the update but not list the bookmark in the error folder nor alert an update after X errors in a row.
