DateCheck

A bit-wise mask number that specifies where to find the date associated with a page. The date must be in a format specified by the parameter DateFormats. Create the number by adding together the following values as required:

URL: 1 The connector checks whether the URL of a page contains any of the date formats specified in the parameter DateFormats.
Page header: 4 The connector checks whether the HTML <HEAD> tag of a page contains any of the date formats specified in the parameter DateFormats.
Page content: 8 The connector checks whether the content of a page contains any of the date formats specified in the parameter DateFormats.
Case insensitive: 64

Add 64 to the DateCheck value to checks for a case-insensitive match.

Note that if you specify 64, you must also specify another value to indicate which part of the page the connector should check for the date.

Before download: 128 Add 128 to the DateCheck value to check the URL and determine whether the date for the page is in the range specified by the parameters BeforeDate and AfterDate. If the date is not in this range, the connector does not download the page.
Discard on check: 256

If you add 256 to the DateCheck value, the connector checks the appropriate page parts for any of the date formats specified in the parameter DateFormats, and discards any page that does not contain one of the specified formats.

Note that if you specify 256, you must also define another value to specify which parts of the page the connector should check for the DateFormats strings.

If you enter 0, the connector does not check for DateFormats.

If the connector does not find a date, it indexes the page using the date you specify in the parameter DefaultDate (or today's date, if DefaultDate is not set).
