Alert LinkRunner Revision History

  • May 22, 2004: Version 6.01 Released:

    • Fixed an issue with the User Agent field in the Database Wizard. Some new server security features were rejecting that field, returning 400 Bad Request errors regularly. The field now defaults to no User Agent string at all. If you are getting Bad Request errors in version 6.0, delete the User Agent string in the LinkRunner Preferences window so that nothing appears there at all. You'll also need to delete in each existing database entry in the Database Wizard.

    • Automatic Report Generation unique to each Web Site or Document checked.

    • Automatic Emailing of Reports to up to three separate addresses.
