I searched the forums looking for this, but it just left me more confused… and I have no idea why this feature isn’t more obvious, I must be missing something right in front on my face…
I want to crawl a site (e.g. macintouch.com) in DevonThink; not search it, just crawl it, given a home page.
I tried creating a new Search Set, used a default search term - Macintosh - in both (?) fields, and it did manage to find a single result, but that’s all.
How can I get it to crawl the entire site?
If you’re using DevonThink pro, you’ll want to File/Import Site… and put the home page as the starting URL.
I’m actually trying to use DevonThink, not DevonAgent; I don’t need to download the site, I need to analyze it the way that DevonThink does.
Assuming that DEVONthink should be DEVONagent (and vice versa) in the above statement, then…
- Activate the “Follow Links” checkbox in the Search Sets panel
- Use the highest “Follow Links” level (by moving the slider to the right)
- Enter “*” (without quotes) as the term to follow links (that way all links will be used)
yes, you’re right, my mind was up mixed, I meant DEVONAgent.
your trick worked, thanks! (those 2 seach fields really ARE confusing.)
