iSearch PHP Site Search Engine - FAQ

This page is still under construction.

Why Does iSearch not find all pages in my site?

iSearch follows HTML links through your site. If your site uses JavaScript or Flash menus extensively, then you may need to insert dummy links to other pages on your site for iSearch to find them. For example:

<A HREF="somepage.html"></A>

Internet search engines such as Google will not be able to spider your site correctly without such links since they they will not parse JavaScript or Flash either.

How can I Spider Password Protected Pages

  • If your site uses HTTP basic authorization use the "Basic Authorization" setting on the "Spider Advanced" configuration page. Set this to contain your username and password, seperated by a colon, e.g. "username:password".

  • A more complicated solution would be to use a URL containing username and password when reading your site. Set "Url Search" to:


    and set "Url Replace" to:

    This should replace any references to with before the file is loaded. The URL containing the password is not kept in the database.
