Not mapping the entire site

I just installed the latest version of SiteMapper and it only finds the home page of my site. The previous version found the entire site. Is there a setting I am missing?

By latest version do you mean the one that just came out today?

That is because you have meta tags in there that are preventing sites from spidering your Website. Go into the Tools menu and un-check the box "respect robots.txt and meta robots tag" and then re-run your sitemap.

I am seeing something similar, the scan locks up over half way through and I have done this twice now with 5.3

How many pages do you have on your Website? Can you share your Website URL?

On a similar note I have found the sitemap will not show child pages, is there a setting to show child pages?
Thanks,

It will find all pages that are linked in. Just make sure that any page that is not getting found, that it is linked in someway to a parent page. Also, remember that Sitemapper cannot find links that are in Flash, JavaScript, DIV's etc.

Hi Scott,

My site is http://www.amachi-texas.org

Sitemapper is only scanning about 1/3 of the pages. I tried unchecking "respect robots.txt and meta robots tag" and remapped, and that did not change anything.

Thanks, Klaus
