Description

A bitwise mask number used to determine whether the connector should follow links on a page. Enter a bitwise mask number specifying where the connector should look for the strings defined in the parameter LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs . If the specified part of a page does not contain one of the LinkAllowCSVs strings or does contain one of the LinkDisallowCSVs strings, the connector does not follow links from the page. You can create the number by adding together some of the following numbers as appropriate:

URL: 1
If you enter 1, the connector checks whether the URL of a page contains any of the strings specified in the parameter LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs.

Page header: 4
If you enter 4, the connector determines whether the HTML <HEAD> tag of a page contains any of the strings specified in the parameter LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs.

Page content: 8
If you enter 8, the connector checks whether the content of a page contains any of the strings specified in the parameter LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs.

Case insensitive: 64
If you add 64 to the LineCheck value, the connector checks the appropriate page parts for a case-insensitive match for the strings specified in the parameter LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs.

Note: If you specify 64, you must also specify another value to indicate which part of the page the connector should check for the LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs strings.

If you enter 0, the connector does not check for the LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs strings.

Example

LinkCheck=73

In this example, the connector checks the URLs and content of pages for case-insensitive matches for the strings you specified in the parameter LinkAllowCSVs or LinkDisallowCSVs .
