Cookies

WebSite-Watcher supports the following methods to handle cookies:

 

Use Internet Explorer Cookies
This is the default method, WebSite-Watcher uses cookies from Internet Explorer. WebSite-Watcher only reads cookies from Internet Explorer, new cookies are not written to the Internet Explorer cookie system.

 

Use internal cookie system
Alternatively to the Internet Explorer Cookie system, WebSite-Watcher can manage cookies individually for each bookmark. The tool MiniBrowser helps you to determine cookies for a given URL, these cookies must be copied to the cookie field in that section. All cookies are stored in the bookmark properties and not shared with other bookmarks.

 

Don't use cookies
As the caption says, WebSite-Watcher doesn't use cookies.

Referrer

In some cases a web page can only be opened when you open it from another specific page. If a web page needs a specific previous page (referrer), you can enter this URL into that field.

GET / POST

The POST feature is available for professional users only and is usually a bit faster than using a Check-Macro. Normally you should record a Check-Macro for pages where the POST command is involved.

 

By default, WebSite-Watcher uses the GET command to monitor web pages. If a page requires the POST command (for example after filling out a form), then you can use the tool MiniBrowser to determined the POST URL and PostData. The field PostData can also contain date variables.
