Question: Where is the “JavaScript Heuristic” option that’s available in the other Inspyder web crawling applications? I can’t seem to find it in InSite.

Answer: We’ve purposely omitted the JavaScript Heuristic option from InSite. The JavaScript Heuristic can produce incorrect links. The heuristic looks at your JavaScript code and tries to guess which text might be URL parts. The heuristic is different than the standard JavaScript parser (which is included in InSite). It’s less powerful, but doesn’t do any guessing.

In our other applications the occasional incorrect guess don’t matter because those applications do not report broken links. InSite does report broken links, so badly guessed URLs will cloud the results with “false positive” broken links (that is to say, links that don’t actually exist may be reported as broken).
