What's New:

Version 12.4.0

  • Fixes problem which caused starting urls with accented characters in the domain to stall.
  • Urls with special characters may have appeared encoded rather than decoded in one or two places including the Link Inspector 'appears on' table and redirect table.
  • Improvements to soft 404 functionality:
    • certain social networking sites currently return a 'soft 404' which is a 200 code and a page that says "page not found" or similar. Detecting this requires the soft 404 feature to be switched on and configured. in some cases it can also require clientside rendering. External links to Twitter and Youtube are now automatically rendered in order to access and check page content (if soft404 is switched on)
    • Some terms are added to the default value for the soft 404 terms field. This will only affect new users or those who haven't altered the default list.
    • When a possible soft 404 is detected, a warning is created which explains which term was matched on the target page. This can be seen in the Link Inspector and in the Warnings table.
    • Note that also requires authentication, otherwise a request for any url will receive the login page along with 200 status. Currently, attempting to authenticate with Instagram using Scrutiny's login window is hit and miss.
    • Some pages won't show any content before the user has accepted cookies. It's possible that accessing the site using Scrutiny's Login window and accepting cookies will get around this, but otherwise this request for a user action will block Scrutiny from being able to detect a soft 404
    • Adds context help to soft 404 settings in the Preferences window.
