By default, you have to create a separate bookmark for each page you want to monitor.
If a whole site instead of single pages should be monitored, you can use the Follow Links functionality. This feature will automatically insert all links of a page as new bookmarks. With several options you can specify how many or which links should be inserted as new bookmarks, for example the link depth.
The Follow Links requires a Master-Bookmark that is the root for all other automatically inserted child bookmarks. Master bookmarks displays the image before the bookmark name and are usually sorted before all other bookmarks.
For all child bookmarks the Follow Links configuration is disabled. Changes to the Follow Links configuration can only be made in master bookmarks.
It's recommended to put each Master-Bookmark into a separate folder!
The link depth defines the depth that WebSite-Watcher should follow. A link depth of 1 means that WebSite-Watcher will follow only links from the current page. With a link depth of 2 WebSite-Watcher will also follow links from linked pages, etc...
By default (without that option) only the most important bookmark properties are copied to automatically inserted bookmarks. If this option is enabled, nearly all bookmark properties from the source bookmark are used in the new, inserted bookmarks.
This option allows you to automatically detect and delete no longer linked pages from the bookmark list. Since this operation takes some time you can configure how often it should be performed. If you right click a master bookmark in your bookmark list, you can also manually perform this operation via the context menu.
With that option, new bookmarks will NOT be inserted if a link address contains at least one of the entered strings. Enter one string per line, all strings are case insensitive. The entered strings are "sub-strings". Regular Expressions (with function regex(...)) and date variables are supported. Wildcards or other regular expression functions than regex(...) are not supported (eg. StartToRegex).

If entered, then automatically inserted bookmarks will have the defined text as prefix in the bookmark name. Example: [wsw]
With that option, the Follow-Links feature uses defined Ignore filters to exclude links from filtered areas of a page. This option only works with Ignore filters, not with Watch filters.
If an URL contains a changing Session-ID, it will be inserted each time you check the site. To prevent that behavior, you can define regular expressions to exclude parts of an URL when WebSite-Watcher checks if it already exists. Enter one regular expression per line. Entering the function text "regex(" and ")" is optional, not required.
