Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

A definitive fix has been found! It seems that under certain circumstances, the regex on line 856 of spiderfuncs.php entered a runaway state. The way to fix this has FINALLY been found. spiderfuncs.php, line 856 should read: if (preg_match("@<title.*?>(.*?)<\/title.*?>@si", $file, $regs)) ...

Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

SPECIFICALLY FOR kraisor: I found a way to capture the titles! The regex normally used gets mangled somewhere. It is a valid script, but at some point it stops working. I HAVE FOUND A REGEX WHICH DOES WORK! This is specifically for apnews.com and will not work for others. Edit admin/spiderfuncs.php,...

Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

Weird indeed! There is SOMETHING in the page that prevents Sphider from seeing the title tags. If I copy the source html into a local file and scan it with Sphider, the tags are not found. If I delete everything from the css down and save that fragment, title tags are found and read. I have been una...

Re: All title tags are showing as Untitled document

Issue is confirmed! The 'title" column of the links table is not being populated for apnews.com. Now to figure out WHY! UPDATE: Sphider is unable to find the title tags (<title> and </title>). In the case of apnews.com, there are TWO causes for this. The first is a simple code fix, but the seco...

Backup does not complete

If your website has abnormally large pages, it is possible that a database backup may not complete. There will be an entry in your error log mentioning running out of memory. Because the backup groups several table rows for efficiency, large pages can cause a transaction to be too big to handle. Thi...
