NEW: Text analysis
We’ve added a text analysis feature to our tool. After scanning a website, users can now choose to analyse the text for repetitions and no-matches on selected subpages directly in our app. When the analysis is concluded, the results & the compiled text become avalible to download.
TEMPORARILY DISABLED: Add a missing URL
We’ve temporarily disabled the “Add a missing URL” functionality while we work on improving it.
Bug fix – download stuck on last % of progress
The download process no longer gets stuck on the last % of progress while compressing results into a zip file on larger downloads.
Minor bug fixes
Site performance optimization
REMOVED: Deep scan
REMOVED: Step 1 (start)
Due to discontinued development of deep scanning & the release of pause/resume scan functionality, the first step after entering the website url has become unnecessary. Upon entering the desired website in the form, the scan will now begin immediately.
Updated application text
Some outdated texts in some popups and other notifications have been updated to reflect the current app state.
NEW: ONE-TIME plan
We’ve added a ONE-TIME subscription plan. This plan is intended for users who wish to download larger websites, but do not need to do so often. You can find more info about our plans here.
NEW: .pdf export
Website export to .pdf format is now avalible to users with our BUSINESS & PRO & the new ONE-TIME plan.
NEW: a new download page
The old poppup window has been removed and replaced with a download page, where users are redirected after exporting a website in order to download their files.
NEW: a pause & resume scan button
Users now have the ability to pause their scans whenever they feel like it and continue to export content from already scanned links. Paused scans can be resumed in the first 24 hours after being paused. After 24 hours, they will be permanently stopped.
Bug fix: Export embedded images option
Checking Export embedded images option in step 3 (export) while exporting in Word (docx) format could sometimes cause the export to get stuck if the scanned website’s webserver was throttling image downloads. This issue has now been fixed. Should the app encounter connection errors when trying to download images from a website, such images will now be skipped.
NEW: subscription plans and Stripe payment
Stripe payments for subscription are now enabled. All registered users can now use the FREE subscription plan limit with no charge or card needed. With our FREE plan, users can export up to 2 websites monthly and up to 15 web pages per site. For users whose needs exceed our FREE plan limits, we offer several different monthly plans. You can find more info about our subscription plans here.
Changes to our database table structure ensure even faster performance.
Added login button next to Register buttons in the application
Until now, the only way to log in was through the main menu. There are now Login buttons besides Register buttons on each step and in each prompt for guest users to get an account.
Bug fix: Export files option
Checking Export files option in step 3 (export) could sometimes cause the export to get stuck. This has now been fixed.
Scanned links are selected by default
By default, all scanned links are now selected for export.
Export Images button removed, added checkbox
Exporting embedded images used to be a separate export process. It has now been merged into the main text export process as an option.
NEW: A new, better look
The application look has been changed to be more sophisticated and professional.
The app no longer experiences drops in performance when many users scan large websites at the same time.
Bug fix on project name in step 3 (export)
Illegal characters in export project name could cause the export to download a corrupted file.
Improved application flow
The old two lists system of picking and choosing links to export on step 2 has been removed. Now there is only one list of scanned links. Users can select and deselect links to export/ignore. Usage instructions were removed because of the simplified process.
Bug fix on access denied
The scan process no longer gets stuck when access to the scanned website is denied. It now skips the denied link.
Improved docx (Word) export startup speed
Word export continues to be slower than other options, but the startup speed of the process has been upped significantly.
Removal of unnecessary tooltips
NEW: a popup on export finish
The new popup thanks users for using the application and invites them to download their export zip file, scan a different site or check their scan history.
NEW: exporting a scanned website now requires a free account
Registration is free.
BUG FIX: scan cancel
On canceling a scan, the app now doesn’t block users from restarting the same scan with different parameters.
Changed homepage layout
BUG FIX: manipulating scanned links
Encoded URLs can now be moved between Export and Ignore lists
The app now treats the entered URL as a base site
The app no longer starts the scan from the website’s base domain, but treats the entered URL as a base domain for the purposes of the scan, thus ignoring links on the site above the entered URL.
Example: Scanning the website “https://website.com/subfolder/” will no longer start the scan from “https://website.com/”, but from “https://website.com/subfolder/”.
BUG FIX: quick scan export
Fixed a bug where sometimes exports of a website scanned with quick scan would not be encoded correctly and cause some special characters to not display correctly.
Added space character trim on entered website URL.
Added space trim to entered website URL, to avoid the app triggering CANCELED-URL-IS-INVALID scan status.
Added instructions show/hide button on step 2
Instructions are now hidden, but a button click can show/hide them
Improved alerts UI and text
Updated text on alerts, separated for different user categories
Removed unnecessary popup at the start of step 2
The information on this popup is now among instructions.
Added visual warnings on required form fields
If the user tries to proceed while there are still empty required form fields, there now appears a red outline around the field in question in addition to the popup alert.
Added progress indicator in percentage (%) when canceling scan/export
Cancel progress now appears in percentage (%) values inside cancel popup windows.
Export sql queries improvements
Updated some suboptimal sql queries in the export process, making it faster.
Added instructions on step 2
Added a section with instructions on step 2 on how to manipulate scanned links to prepare for step 3 (export)
Updated basic JS alerts to Bootstrap 5.2 Modal windows. Improved all text to be more detailed.
Added a field to change the website url on Step 1
Added a new field on Step 1 where the user may change the website link entered on homepage in case of typos etc.
Added email autofill
Registered users will have their account email autofilled into the email field on Step 1.
Added faster loading of links into the UI while scanning
Once we’ve added the quick scan option, the UI loading only the last scanned link on each interval became too slow. Now the app loads all links scanned since the last check. (The app checks for newly scanned links each second.)
Fixed link duplicating bug
Fixed a bug where links would duplicate if the user quickly navigated back and forth between Step 2 and 3.
Updated UI layout to be more compact and user friendly on mobile
Updated UI so there is less space between elements, fixed positioning of elements to be more compatible with smartphone screens.
Updated the Add one link function
Duplicate links are no longer allowed. Updated & added new warnings, added label above input field for greater transparency.
Starting website link can now include the “#” character
(You can enter a link containing the # character to scan a webpage)
Smart link ignore filter
Link filter now ignores the following strings in a link: “add-to-cart”, “add_to_wishlist”, “comment-page”.
Word count filter is now more accurate
Word count filter now ignores some special html characters.
