Hello,

When Site Mapper crawls my website, it does not find 3 types of files (*.pptx;*.csv;*.zip). I have added these file extensions in to the list in the "Options" dialog.

These are my file types as defined in options:

*.htm;*.html;*.shtm;*.shtml;*.txt;*.php;*.pdf;*.swf;*.asp;*.cfm;*.aspx;*.pptx;*.csv;*.zip;

Every other file type works fine. Also, I have several of each of these 3 file types in the same directory with other files (ex *.pdf) that are found and mapped properly. Please help.

It might be a permissions issue with the directory.:)

All the other files in the directory (*.txt) work fine. Also, all of the files (*.pdf, *.csv, etc....) are downloadable from the web site so the permissions seem fine on the directory. It is only site mapper that cannot seem to find them.

This is actually working as intended. Because a PDF or ZIP has no content in it that it can spider, it is treating them as a download and it would not be included into the sitemap. It is an interesting an idea and it maybe something we add to the next update.
