Question: Does the Inspyder Crawler interpret JavaScript?

Answer: Since version 3.0 the Inspyder Crawler has had basic support for JavaScript.

Basic support is limited to detecting URL literals within your JavaScript code. This works with most sites that have JavaScript menus and style elements.

Please note that our crawler does not actually run JavaScript code. This means that complex JavaScript actions (such as ASP.NET Post Back events) are not executed by our crawler.

If you’re unsure if your website uses JavaScript (or the type of JavaScript used), download one of our free trials and test it on your website. If you need more comprehensive information please contact our technical support.
